Island Soul City Dreams

I love New York, but my heart has a Caribbean beat. It pulsates to the traditions of my people. Attuned to the rhythms of this City, I stay West Indian to the bone. I reflect. I analyze. I speak my mind. ~ I Keep it Irie ~

My Little Track Star

My nephew Nicholai, the third fastest Under-11 boy in Barbados.

In a recent post, I spoke about the handwritten letter my nephew, Nicholai wrote to me from Barbados. I’m still over the moon about that. Then today, one of my best friends from back home sent me a photograph via WhatsApp. I am here beaming as I relive that euphoric moment of seeing a snapshot of Nicholai from today’s Nation’s newspaper. I am incredibly proud of him and because I could not help myself, I beg your indulgence as I share this moment with you. After success at his school sports, Nicholai competed in the zone events where he qualified for the semi-finals of the National Primary Schools Athletics Championship (NAPSAC). He made it to the finals in the 100m, 200m, 400m and team 400X100m, placing third in the 100m and second in the 400m at the Barbados National Stadium. His performances earned him an overall second place in the Under 11-boys at NAPSAC. This accomplishment came a mere two weeks after he celebrated his 10th birthday! Congratulations to Nicholai!:-)
