Quality accommodations and experience for athletes from St. Kitts and Nevis and other countries at PANAM Games
Every effort is being taken to ensure that St. Kitts and Nevis’ four athletes and other delegation members at the Pan-American Games in Lima, Peru, have a very comfortable and satisfying experience, especially at the athletes’ village.
The PanAm Sports Executive Committee stayed overnight at the Lima 2019 Pan American Games Village ahead of the start of competition so they could make an accurate assessment of the logistics of the accommodations.
Alphonso Bridgewater is a member of the PanAm Sports Executive Committee which oversees the games. He expressed satisfaction with the quality of the accommodations. Bridgewater also drew attention to how cold the temperature will be during the sporting event.
The Village is located in Villa el Salvador, an area on the outskirts of Lima.
It consists of seven towers and will be home to 7,902 people in 1,096 apartments during the games.
Team St. Kitts and Nevis features four athletes.
Jason Rogers and Jermaine Francis were both medallists at the Central American and Caribbean Games, in Colombia, last year. Rogers captured silver in the men’s 100m while Francis copped bronze in the men’s high jump.
The two females on the team- Shenel Crooke and Reanda Richards- are experienced campaigners too. Shenel was a finalist in the women’s 100m at the Central American and Caribbean Games last year and Reanda was ranked fourth in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) 400m hurdles at the end of the 2019 season.
The delegation is being led by Chef de Mission Lester Hanley.
