Dart gives Cydonie $50K

Cayman’s biggest track meet of the year is getting huge corporate support.

As Caymanian athletes continue to shine through and excel on a professional level, DART Cayman Islands is delighted to sign on as one of the major supporters of the inaugural Cayman Invitational track event. To show its support, DART Sports and Recreation Manager Jeff Wight recently presented Caymanian track heroine Cydonie Mothersill with a cheque for $50,000.

“Dart Cayman Islands is very pleased to offer sponsorship to the Cayman Invitational Track event,” Wight said. “Sports tourism is an exciting area for the country, one that not only stimulates the economy but provides inspiration for our young athletes.

“We look forward to the many exciting opportunities this inaugural event will bring to enhance and further develop it in the Cayman Islands.”

The professional track meet, slated for 9 May at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex in George Town, is coordinated by Mothersill, an accomplished and award-winning sprinter. The race is expected to be a huge catalyst for the continued growth of sports on Grand Cayman and the entire Cayman Islands. It is slated to feature international stars like 100 metre world champion Yohan Blake of Jamaica, American sprinter Carmelita Jeter and Michael Frater, member of the Jamaican 4x100m world record breaking team.
