ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – The three Athlete team of Chantel E. Malone, Ashley N. Kelly and Kyron A. McMaster are in their final preparations for the IAAF World Championships scheduled to be held in London from August 4 to August 13, 2017.

Organisers of the Championshipshave announced the latest sales figure for tickets with more than 660,000 sold and a bumper opening weekend with a quarter of a million spectators set to flock to the London Stadium over the Friday, Saturday and Sunday sessions.

The British Virgin Islands Athletics Association (BVIAA) President, Mr. Steve Augustine, is looking forward to what they will achieve on the World stage and is excited. “McMaster goes in as a top contender in his event, so hopes are high for what he will achieve, Kelly is expected to put up a great showing and of course Malone, who started her season late due to a foot injury, will have another opportunity to show what she can do as a top 30 ranked Jumper”

McMaster leaves Sunday July 30, 2017 with Team Coach, Dag Samuel and the girls will be joining them in London on Tuesday/Wednesday.

“This is my first year as President,” noted Augustine ,“The inspiration this provides the Youngsters goes without saying. For them to be able to see the likes of McMaster training hard day in day out on the Track in Road Town, motivates them to an all-time high.”

Kelly runs in the 400m, having recently set a new National Record, Malone takes on the Long Jump and McMaster, with a World leading time already under his belt, goes in the 400m Hurdles.
