FEBRUARY 25—Officials recording measurements in field events in BVI Athletics Association and other track meets in the territory, will no longer have to stand, thanks to a donation from a former president.
Johnny Hassan on Saturday evening handed over six 30-inch utility tables and six chairs which officials in field events such as Long and Triple Jumps, Shot Put, Discus Throw, Ball Throw, Javelin Throw, High Jump and reading Wind Gauges will be able to use.
Hassan who was BVI Athletics Association president between 1974 and 1976 has made other equipment donations to the association. Every time an athlete open a water cooler to get a beverage at BVIAA competitions, whey interact with Hassan’s donation.
Last week the BVI Athletics Association held the Johnny Hassan Relays. Hassan presented the monetary prizes he donated to representatives from Fire and Rescue, Top Notch, Sprint Tech and Raw Skillz Track Clubs who had the top teams in the relays in his honor.
On behalf of athletes and officials, the BVI Athletics Association sincerely thank Johnny Hassan for his contributions. Anyone interested in donating to the BVI Athletics Association can call 284.541.3545 for more details.
