NASSAU, BAHAMAS – A day after a Bahamian Olympic Gold Medalist sounded the alarm on infrastructural issues on the property gifted to him and other Olympic Medalists, two Cabinet Ministers have given their word that the matter will be dealt with.

Kyle Walkine has the story.

 



It’s perhaps the worst kept secret- a wrong, Works Minister Alfred Sears says he is now trying to make right- governments giving the country’s Olympic gold medalists land in an area with no infrastructure and every roadblock in the book to get it.

Golden Knight Ramon Miller said he couldn’t get things like lamp poles and wires installed for power and water supply.

And it turns out, Miller’s not the only one.

Remember the Golden Girls who won Olympic Gold In Sydney, Australia in 2000?

Well, they haven’t been able to do anything with their property either.

Golden Girl Pauline Davis-Thompson told the tribune that since their 2000 Olympic win, none of them could build on the property and didn’t speak out to avoid “embarrassing” the country.

Youth, Sports and Culture Minister Mario Bowleg says he fully supports those athletes…

Bowleg said he will see to it that the issue is resolved.
