    That shouldn't ever happen to any athletes from anywhere.
    Oh they are surviving and it is all part of the learning process. It is a beautiful hotel-just overbooked I guess. :lol:
    Our girl is learning lots-she says in her emails that she feels very rich and spoiled by her life at home.I have no idea what Port au Spain is like now though I lived there briefly as a child. She has been "oot and aboot" with the team though.
    Obviously she has led a sheltered life! She also hates food with spices so is picking her way through food. :lol: The heat and humidity are another challenge.

    I say it is all so good for her and the others. As long as they are safe, and they are, bring it on!

    I am hoping for good things from Canada's girls 4x100m relay. Two of our girls ran in the finals and did well. The US will definitely be the big favs along with Jamaica but there might be a drop off in team depth after that.
    My athlete is on the relay and is so nervous. Never been to a meet any where near this big-and so far from home. She watched both the men's and women's 100F and was suitably impressed.
    Reassuring emails are definitely the order of the day!

    This should come as no surprise. The five pole vaulters came from three countries--USA, CAN, and BRA. In the past decade, in the World Junior Championships, how many competitors came from any country in the Western Hemisphere other than those three countries? The answer is one.

    That is indeed a wow! Second fastest U.S. Junior ever and fourth fastest on the all-time World Junior list (behind Lewis Francis, Demps, and Darrel Brown).

    Chalonda Goodman is the real deal.....she looks like a tall athlete like Marion Jones....

    Marcus Rowland is he freshman in college or incoming freshman?

    Another impressive performance for Kirani James in the 400. In fact, I'm impressed that Tavaris Tate came as close as he did. James is the real thing.
