Track and field coach Bryan Holder says more females should be representing Barbados on the international stage.

According to Holder, the island is facing a big predicament as it relates to females and their participation in sports.

His comments came after the Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires, Argentina where Sarah Belle, who competed in the women’s 100m hurdles, was the lone female athlete in the Barbados squad.

“Unfortunately for us in Barbados, we are in a crisis with females in sport and in track and field are in dire need of females coming back into the sport.

“Years ago, we had Janelle Inniss, Sheena Gooding and a good calibre of females. In some meets now, we don’t have an Under-18 Girls category. We have to merge the girls with the women,” he said. (AGB)
