    Ms Hodge, you probably already knew it and perhaps, your parents and primary school coaches knew it as well. Your name is now out there and you are still so young. It's exciting just to think how far you can go and the rewards you may reap. We are so so proud of you and your fellow team members who are giving your all. Continue to do your best and we hope (hope) that you and your team-mates receive what you should when you return back to your respective homes. Carifta is world stage business and we should treat you athletes as such. Stay injury free and please give thanks to God when you all rise this morning to continue the battle for athletic and future success.

    She is quick. She is special..She is the Future of 100 Metre. .Stay Focus young lady...Be Aware of the Americans, Be very cautious, The Americans The athletes Their Doctors will do you things to bring you down. Do like the Jamaicans, stay away...Why when we on the world stage they have the BVI backwards like this "IVB". Why don't the BVI officials address this. It's "BVI". Also the young tall guy that ran the 100 metre I think he came 5th, he has potential, hope he stays focus and keep working . Congrats to all. Good Job.. Time for us to get real serious about sports and sport tourism. "it's the future, the way to go..

      IVB is the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Code of the British Virgin Islands. French is the first reference language of the IOC, then English and whatever the country's language after. So BVI is seen on the international stage as "Lless Vierges Britanniques (IVB)

    She's from good stock. Grand dad Allen Hodge and cousin Guy Hill were speed demons back in the day. Her mom wasn't no slouch either. Congratulations
