The Falcon Games returned to the Dwight Yorke Stadium on the weekend (April 12-14), and the event is being hailed as a success.
The Games were hosted by Falcons Athletic Club, with support from the Division of Sport and Youth Affairs. The event is geared toward identifying, developing and highlighting local talent in a competitive atmosphere.
And Club president Durley Lucas believes this year, the event has achieved those goals.
“Initiatives like these serve to deepen the spirit of camaraderie within the sporting fraternity, while sharpening the skills of the athletes of all ages,” Lucas said. “The winning combination of these elements resulted in the success of the games.”
The highlight of this year’s Games was Akeem Stewart, who broke the national men’s shot put record with his monster effort of 20.12 metres.
This year’s meet was preceded by a series of seminars covering sporting administration, execution and support, and other areas.
