The Ministry of Education continues to enhance its athletic programme at the Nevis Athletics Stadium at Long Point with the recent addition of a top-of-the-line photo finish system.
At a brief but significant ceremony at the stadium on January 12, 2023, Hon. Troy Liburd, Junior Minister responsible for Sports, described the new equipment as a critical addition which would elevate track and field on Nevis.
“This will go a long way to advancing track and field here on the island of Nevis.
“When I assumed the role of Minister of Education some years ago, one of the first persons who approached me was Mr. [Garfield] Virgo and he kept on insisting that one of the things that we really, really need here on Nevis is a system such as this – the photo finish system – that will determine who crosses the line first. It is up to the time system… We are no longer going to use the pistol and the mic.
