A member of the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association, JAAA, says he has no hope that there’ll be a CARIFTA trial this year.

The three day trial to select Jamaica’s team to the CARIFTA games in Bermuda is listed on the JAAA calendar for March 5-7.

He says he wants the meet to take place, but with the recent spike in positive COVID-19 cases he doesn’t see it happening.

With the country experiencing a spike he says stakeholders should keep their fingers cross and pray that Jamaica gets the COVID-19 vaccine so it can help and get the virus under control.

The member says sport is not a priority right now with the government having so much on its plate.

He says the JAAA have done everything to put things in place for safe hosting of meets – including preparing a protocol document, which the rest of the Caribbean has adopted and the training of over 600 protocol officers.
