Coach Hamilton impressed with young Javelin thrower Nian Davis

Despite not making it to the next round of the competition Coach of the Dominica team at the 51st CARIFTA Games in St. Georges Grenada Joel Hamilton has expressed “confidence” in young Nian Davis and says he is “impressed” at his performance.

The 13-year-old who also represented Dominica at the recently held Windwards Islands Boys Under 15 cricket in St. Vincent made his debut appearance for Dominica at the CARIFTA Games taking place at the Kirani James Stadium in Grenada.

He placed 11th overall and had a best throw of 39.67 meters.

“He went out there…he was confident and he did his best, the future is bright for him and I see a good prospect for the future. He was a late-minute qualifier so we had little time to work with him, but he is a confident young man with a bright future,” Hamilton stated.

Speaking after the event, Davis stated that he did not do as he was expected, but he will continue to work hard. His message to young and budding athletes is, “Don’t give up, don’t let the crowd intimidate you, work hard, and put in the effort and the results will come.

Dominica’s next event will be late this afternoon after the official 2:30 pm opening with 15-year-old Jamaican base Kerelle Etienne taking part in the 100 meters and Addison James in the Discuss.
