      Give the sports minister props for WHAT??? This kids did the without the help of government but with the help of their coaches, parents and the BVIAA.....Dean needs to continue to put pressure on them because the other countries like Jamaica, Bahamas, Trinidad & Barbados get help from their government.......come with something else because clearly you know nothing about what goes on in track and field...
