President of the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association, ISSA. Keith Wellington says permission has been given for the staging of the 2021 ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls Athletics Championships.

Mr. Wellington made the revelation to Nationwide Sports this evening.

The dates for the high school track and field festival are May 11-15.

Last year’s event was cancelled not long after the first reported case of COVID-19 in Jamaica.

The year’s event had been in limbo after it became clear approval wasn’t going to granted for the April 27-May 1 date proposed by ISSA.

ISSA’s president says stakeholders are fine tuning the details of the event and an announcement will be made shortly.
