ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Ashley N. Kelly, the Virgin Islands' (VI) golden girl and strong contender for a medal in the 200m, prepares for the most prestigious race of her life, in Rio. Her career has grown from strength to strength, reaching the semifinals for the 200m and 400m at the Commonwealth Games in 2014 and achieving the VI indoor record for both distances in 2016.

Her outdoor season debut this year resulted in her 200m qualification for the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics with a personal best time of 23.17. It is safe to say that she is in the best shape of her career and ready to give her all for this year’s Olympics.

Naturally VI residents are united in their enthusiasm to support her and watch her performance. Kelly’s first 200m race will be on Monday August 15, 2016 at 8:32 A.M. VI time. Subject to qualifying, she will go on to a second round at 9:00pm on Tuesday August 16, 2016 and then potentially the final at 9:30 P.M. on Wednesday August 17, 2016.

Flow, Ms Kelly’s sponsor for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, has focused on creating a number of channels to allow her followers to share their support and best wishes.  

  • 8:00am on Monday August 15, 2016 FLOW is hosting a Johnny Cake watch party at Gram’s Place restaurant, in East End Tortola, (across from the bus stop in Fat Hogs Bay). Gram’s Place is reminiscent of Ashley’s number 1 fan, her late Grandmother Grethel Stoutt and her famously known Caribbean recipes.  Today it is owned by Kelly’s mother Gleneth Pickering and will be attended by reams of fans and well-wishers. All supporters are welcome to join for rowdy support fueled by Gram’s Johnny Cake and Salt Fish. The Flow Rio 2016 app coverage of the Rio Olympic Games will focus on the Caribbean athletes and allows users to replay, watch live, enjoy interviews and monitor the medal tally.
  • Share best wishes on Twitter #flowwithashleykelly, which she will be monitoring throughout her time in Rio.
  • In addition, Ms Kelly will be sharing her own experience via her own social media:

Ms Kelly commented, “I am grateful for the support from Flow BVI in my journey to the Rio Olympic Games and am excited for the opportunity to share this experience with my family, friends, and long-time supporters! The Flow Rio 2016 App is an opportunity to highlight Caribbean athletes during the Games, as we are often lost in traditional news outlets. It is a dream to represent my country at this year’s Games, and I hope that people will come out and watch me make my dream a reality.”

Sarah Graham, Marketing Launch Manager at Flow added, “It is a real honour and a pleasure to work with Ashley Kelly, who is a phenomenal athlete and a wonderful role model.  Flow is delighted to support her Olympic medal winning attempt this year and hope that by introducing all of these channels of support, Ashley will feel the embrace and enthusiasm of all of her friends, family and supporters here in BVI.”

Ms Graham added, “We are excited to be able to offer our customers live streaming of the games on their mobile devices. We are keen, however, to stress that streaming uses data and that anyone using the app should be careful to monitor their usage through MyFlow to avoid data overages. To help enable viewing of the games and reduce the cost of data we are offering double data bolt-ons throughout the Olympic Games.”

Visit discoverflow.co or the Flow Retail store 8:30 A.M. - 5:30P.M. Monday-Friday or Saturday 9:00 A.M. – 2:00 P.M. for more information.
