NATASHA Alder and Cassie Small, the top athletes from this year’s Jefford Track and Field Classic, yesterday received their prizes from MVP Sports, one of the sponsors of the 10-year long event.
Alder won the women’s discus, javelin and shotput events while Small won the women’s 100m, 200m and 400m.
Both athletes, after receiving an outfit of their choice, from MVP Sports, thanked organiser Edison Jefford and proprietor Ian Ramdeo for their continued contribution towards the development of athletes in the track and field arena.
Ramdeo made it clear that MVP Sports, located on the ground floor of the Giftland Mall, will be a ‘friend to the end’ to the Jefford Track and Field Classic, and wished the athletes well on their feature endeavours in the sports.
Jefford apologised for the lateness in the presentation of prizes, telling the gathering of media that he had left the country and upon his return, had taken a new professional portfolio.
Nonetheless, he said that he looks forward to seeing the two ladies next year at the 11th edition of the country’s premier track and field event in Linden.
