Basseterre, St. Kitts, August 09, 2019 (SKNVIBES): “

St. Kitts and Nevis will get a chance win its first medal at the 2019 Pan Am Games in Peru, after Jason Rogers qualified for the finals of the Men’s 100m. As coach Lonzo Wilkinson predicted, Jason is focused and ready to medal and would make the finals. Despite not having any competition before the Pan Am Games due to the fact he just recovered from injury, Jason managed to finish third in his semi-final heat to be the only athlete in the final that does not have a season best.  “I’m feeling really good that I finished third place and made it through the finals but I am not as happy with the time.

He believes if he had gotten some competition under his belt for the year, he would have performed better. “This is my first race for the year and if I had a few races—about three, four races before this meet, I would have been in a better position…I have to take what I have and make it work,” he said.
