Premier Joins Sprinter In Training Session

July 21, 2010

Premier Dr Ewart Brown spent part of the morning of Saturday July 17 at the National Sports Centre with top teenage sprinter Jeneko Place. The Premier, an ex athlete himself, joined Jeneko in doing a few drills, and sharing his past track experiences.

16-year-old Jeneko is ranked in the top 15 in the world and has had a banner season thus far; winning two medals at the 2010 CARIFTA Games in Cayman Islands, and two medals in the 2010 CAC Jr Games in the Dominican Republic. The Cedarbridge student, who maintains excellent academic records and is on the honour roll, is clocking times comparable to top world class sprinters at his age.

    Oh Mrs. Jones……please. Rethink what you just wrote. Thats not fair too the Premier.

    50 years later he’s still running. On his way back from South Africa he even participated in the ‘Running of the Bulls’. As for your blatant remarks about “NEVER SEEN SUCH BULL”, deine “BULL”.

    This is a Prime Rib of Premier quality and a lesson too the youth that you can run but you had hide………….

Why doesn’t he take some of the millions that will be wasted on the festival and put it back into the community!! Bermuda is falling apart. Are you all blind???? Every week shootongs..rapes…girls stealing from their employers!! The place is turning into Jamaica!
