Tuesday, December 10, 2013

The man who conditions Bolt at the Racers Track Club, Glen Mills, won a third consecutive Coach of the Year award.

Jamaica's juniors were not to be outdone. The JAAA Howard Aris Award, established last year in memory of the late former athletics administrator went to 17-year-old Yanique Thompson.

She, however, shared the Scotia Group/Howard Aris Scholarship with high jumper Christophe Bryan, who is also 17. They received scholarship amounts of $250,000 each.
