Rolle commends CARIFTA teams

Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture Lanisha Rolle yesterday honored the CARIFTA teams that represented The Bahamas abroad over the Easter holiday weekend.
 The CARIFTA swim team finished first with a total of 73 medals, while track and field and water polo both finished second at their respective events.
Rolle said that the athletes helped to take the Bahamas’ reputation as a hot bed for athletic talent to another level.
“This little dot that people see on the map became a lot bigger in the world’s eyes thanks to you athletes,” Rolle said. “Despite our size, we continue to produce good results on the international scene. You did a good job representing the country. You showed that we are a people that believe in doing our best and giving our best effort. And you secured our spot as an international sports powerhouse.
