Anthrick Sports Management in Collaboration with OVALTINE/CADBURY

Saturday May 18, 2013 is set to make the highlight reels for the year in review. Anthrick Sports Management will be staging its 3rd annual Junior track meet with title sponsors OVALTINE and CADBURY stepping up to the plate to unearth talent across this beautiful island of Jamaica.

The meet will be held at the National Stadium starting at 8:30 am sharp. The one day event will feature elementary schools from all across the island with entrants also confirmed from the Bahamas.

Understanding that motivation is the catalyst for achievement, Anthrick Sports Management Planning Committee Chairman Ricardo 'Ricky' Martin will introduce a champion rural boy and rural girl for the first time. There will also be a champion rural school.

This is definitely the final dress rehearsal before Prep School Champs and all the coaches will be looking to see exactly where their athletes are in terms of preparation.

No expense is being spared to stage this event as Mr Martin insists that this event should rival any track meet held in the island as well as internationally; at this level. He sees no reason why the professionalism should not shine through from now so the athletes get accustomed to a certain type of atmosphere, behaviour and expectation.

The meet will feature Windgauge and Electronic Timing and all the action will be captured in photo by Dwayne 'Termite-Yardie Sports' Richards, the brother of 400m female sensation Sanya Richards-Ross.

The media launch of this cataclysmic event will take place May 16 at The Altimont Court Hotel starting at 11 a.m. sharp. The guest speaker will be none other than Dave Myrie, current principal of Kingston College, who also happens to be the JAAA 1st VP, and member of Racers Track Club executive. He was also a former Principal of Wolmers Boys School.

Valerie Nieta-Robertson QC will convey the vision of Anthrick Sports Management as it is their strong belief that this area is where the main focus should be for future development; not only in sports but in many other areas.

Other sponsors making this event possible are:
  • Cadbury Chocolate Milk
  • Dr Lushus Bakery
  • Lifespan Water
  • Hi-Lyte Sports Drink
  • Fashion 911 Clothing
  • Jamaica Events Management - Security
  • Kia Motors

The overall management of the meet rests with the capable group Ondirun, under direction from Gregg Scott who also happens to be the coach of Wolmers High School. The cadet corps from Calabar High School will provide assistance to patrons attending the event.

The team of Anthrick Sports Management consists of the following persons:
  • Ricardo 'Ricky' Martin - COO
  • Anthony 'Tunni' Cooke - CEO
  • Tastey Blackman - CRO
  • Dwight Sulph - ITO
  • Valerie Nieta-Robertson QC
Their involvement in sports in steeped in tradition and undoubtedly augers well for our Junior athletes, as their unwavering support will continue to foster and develop athletics in Jamaica. The country possesses a treasure trove of talent and the harnessing and exploitation of this talent is paramount to our (Jamaica's)  continued success.
