Two-time Olympic and four-time World 100m Champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, in a social media publication, made it very clear that she is not in support of some stakeholder's viewpoint to push back the Government's decision to restart sporting events locally. Sports was halted early last year due to the novel coronavirus and several major sporting events had to be postponed or cancelled.

The JC/Purewater/R. Danny Williams Track & Field Development Meet initially scheduled for this Saturday January 9th, has been postponed.

The event which usually serves as the opening development for the track and field season for many schools, had to be postponed after the organizers failed to secure the necessary governmental approval from the Ministry of Health and Wellness.
