A number of top athletes from three Caribbean Islands are expected to join some of Jamaica’s elite athetes on show at the 15th staging of the University of the West Indies (UWI) Track and Field Invitational Meet set to take place on Saturday, April 2.
The meet is once again expected to set the UWI/Usain Bolt Track alight as athletes step up preparations for impressive performances ahead of the National Senior Championships in June, and by extension the Rio Olympic Games in August.
However, the meet which has been a staple of the Jamaican track and field calendar, will clash with the Inter-Collegiate Championships to be staged from April 1-2 at the same venue.
It is unclear how the organisers intend to arrive at a seamless agreement, but Meet Director Grace Jackson expressed disappointment that the UWI Invitational was not staged before the Inter-Collegiate.
