Not 'Usain Bolt Stadium'
Attorney Howard Hamilton in his letter of August 20, 2012 makes two proposals. I agree with him that the Trelawny Multi-Purpose Stadium should be remodelled to accommodate international track meets.
However, I part ways with his suggestion to name the stadium the "Usain Bolt Stadium". Too often we name our roads and certain structures after our National Heroes, athletes and outstanding citizens. These often fall into disrepair due to neglect or lack of funding to ensure upkeep.
I think Mr Bolt should resist any move to have the Trelawny stadium named after him, for he would rue the day that a structure bearing his name should suffer an unhappy fate.
I think the current name is just fine.
