Sprinter Michelle-Lee Ahye has already achieved so much for T&T and though it has not been the smoothest path to success, her passion to represent this country is unwavering.
DECISIVE LEG: Trinidad and Tobago’s Richard Thompson, second right, receives the baton from Emmanuel Callendar even as Jamaica’s Usain Bolt, centre right, urges on Asafa Powell who is already into stride, on the final leg of the men’s 4x100-metre relay at the Beijing 2008 Olympics in China on August 22, 2008. Powell crossed the finish line ahead of Thompson but, ten years later, T&T will be given the gold because Jamaica’s first leg runner Nesta Carter was doped.
HUNDREDS of children will have the chance to hone their skills in track and field, football, cricket and other sports on December 9, at the Michelle-Lee Ahye Coaching and Family Day, which will be held at the Defence Force Headquarters on Airways Road, Chaguaramas.
