  1. Strange how you people don’t give Kirani James 3 times Olymlic medalist all of his accolades. That’s ok though. Grenada loves him.

    1. Josephine, I am sure I see James’ name included in this report and that he’s an Olympic champion. Let’s celebrate his return from injuries and sickness and not find ways to deflect from others.
