EIGHT AND A HALF on a scale of one to ten.
That’s the assessment from Neil Murrell, director of the National Sports Council (NSC), on the quality of the remedial work done over the last ten days at the National Stadium.
Murrell, along with senior superintendent of the NSC, Nicholas Matthias, had a final inspection of the Stadium yesterday morning and were happy the new enhanced synthetic track surface was ready for St George Secondary to have their annual sports day.
“There was a little period of uncertainty as to whether we would make it but the Mondo team and the NSC personnel worked assiduously to make sure that the track was ready.
“We also called in the surveyors to make sure that all of the marks and all of the lines were put back in according to the original plan and we had a team from the Ministry of Transport and Works (MTW) coming and doing the remarking of the track.
“So all the stakeholders were together to make sure that sports would be here for the remainder of the track season,” Murrell said. (MK)
