Dear Sir/Madam

Kindly allow me to comments on Tanika Liburd’s performance:

“Tanika Liburd’s performance shows the level that an athlete can achieve given the opportunity, talent and commitment. As her former coach, I am indeed pleased that she has excelled not only in the collegiate circuit but has also performed well in the International arena. Her expectations to take it to the next level (professional), given her sterling and consistent four year career at the University of Southern Mississippi, are indeed achievable especially if provided with the holistic support that she deserves and will require.

The Nevis Amateur Athletic Association and I dare say, the people of Nevis, are indeed proud of this daughter of the soil and expects continued achievements in her featured event, the Long Jump.”
