The Cayman Islands Athletic Association is preparing to send a team representing the Cayman Islands to the eleventh renewal of the Caribbean Union of Teachers Track & Field Championships in St. Lucia from the 20th to the 23rd of July. Mr. H. Delroy Murray, President of the Athletic Association, highlighted the importance of this event by explaining that the Championships have served as a launching pad for the track and field careers of a number of regional athletes who have become major players in International Track & Field, players such as Veronica Campbell, Obadele Thompson, Mac Burns and Darrel Brown. Mr. Murray expressed his hopes that the championships provide a similar spring-board for Caymanian Athletes, saying, "We certainly see no reason why this should not be the case". He cited Chantelle Morrison, Ashleigh and Justin Nalty, as well as the Girls' Under 13 and Under 15 relay teams, as showing potential. Mr. Murray gratefully recognised the support of the Ministry of Education, Training, Employment, Youth, Sports & Culture, for making Cayman's representation at these Championships a reality. Taking receipt of the Athletic Association's Ministry grant, Mr. Murray expanded on the use of the funds saying, "The Association looks forward to the re-laying of the track and the repairs of the facilities at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex in the near future so as to facilitate the Association's plans of staging the International Primary Schools Championships and the inaugural Caribbean British Overseas Territories Games in 2007."
