Roberts: Walcott a young man of class
An elated Minister of Sports Anil Roberts yesterday paid tribute to the country’s second Olympic gold medalist, Keshorn Walcott, noting that his success in yesterday’s javelin event at the Olympics could not have come at a better time. Commenting on Walcott’s historic achievement, Roberts said: “God is good. In a time when some citizens have had their properties and life turned upside down by the flooding of their homes, up comes a young bright star from Toco to inject some inspiration, pride and glory on the faces of the people of T&T.” Roberts said the victory had not sunk in ‘as yet’. “But for Walcott to move from being World Junior Champion to Olympic champion is six weeks, is just unheard of. It’s an unprecedented achievement.”
