TORTOLA - Ivanna Eudora Kean High School's Keshema Flemming, a regular participant in BVI Athletics Association events, was among 76 young athletes who attended the Tahesia Harrigan-Scott Speed and Technical Camp during the weekend. The event featured several Olympic Games and IAAF World champions who delivered inspiring messages.
After participants went through sessions on nutrition, massage therapy and anti-doping, came the moment they eagerly awaited, when London 2012 Olympic Games and Daegu 2011 IAAF World 400-meter champion Kirani James joined gold medal speakers Dwight Phillips, J.J. Johnson and Harvey Glance from the USA to share their testimonies.
While underscoring education's importance, James told the athletes to always surround themselves with positive people.
