No pro shows for Morgan

Body fitness pro athlete Ramona Morgan was looking forward to a productive year, but like many athletes across the globe, the coronavirus pandemic has forced her to stay put.

Morgan, 42, who secured her pro card during 2018 Central American and Caribbean Championships in Mexico, was particularly hoping for a pro segment triumph to gain her ticket to compete at the World Championships set for the International Federation of Bodybuilding’s Elite headquarters in Spain in November.

“The most I can do is continue to train, but I can’t see myself competing, outside of Barbados or even competing even if they decide to have the Darcy [Beckles] Diamond Cup] this year,” she told MIDWEEK SPORT.

“It involves travelling and it involves other athletes coming into Barbados. When the borders are opened back, the virus is still going to be out there. My health is important.”
