Maynard: Success not only in medals
IF YOU QUALIFY, you deserve to represent Barbados.
This is the opinion of Barbados’ Pan American Games chef de mission Esther Maynard and Barbados Olympic Association (BOA) general manager Glyne Clarke as they discussed Barbados’ performance at last month’s Games in Toronto.
The pair was speaking to SUN SPORTS in an exclusive interview on Friday at the BOA’s headquarters in Wildey. Both were adamant that winning medals should not be the only thing used to measure an athlete’s success.
Clarke noted that if countries only sent persons who they thought would medal, the Games would not be as competitive as they are right now.
