JAMAICA'S teams to the Penn Relays 2014 have been advised to run fast, win their races, and then focus on their studies when they return home.

The advice came from CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank Managing Director Nigel Holness as he presented his company's sponsorship cheques to school teams which the bank is helping to participate in the Penn Relays Carnival, scheduled from tomorrow through to Saturday.

CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank gave sponsorship assistance to 10 schools, including Edwin Allen High, St Jago High, St George's College, Convent of Mercy Academy (Alpha), Ardenne High, St Elizabeth Technical High, The Queen's School, Munro College, Wolmer's Boys, and Herbert Morrison Technical High.

Holness told the students that "balance in life is critical for one to take advantage of one's options. Competing at Penn Relays is a golden opportunity for you, don't waste it. Remain focused, grounded, level-headed, humble. And bring home those medals."
