Four of the best high school athletes on St. Croix and myself are headed for Europe to begin Olympic school in Austria, Germany and Italy. We had great help from the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands; Governor John deJongh; Housing, Parks and Recreation; and Weisner Development — a new sponsor which came together to make it happen, taking the burden off the sponsors who help every trip like MSI, Glen and Billy D. We still have a few aspects yet to cover but nothing to stop us from leaving for the camp.
Congrats to Juan, Anthony, Shawn and Carlos for being great athletes and A/B students, which allowed them to have 23 days out of school with credit to go and compete in Europe for the V.I. flag. We may have four new skeleton athletes in the making, and a high school full of future bobsledders. We’ll see. Keep you posted once we reach camp.
