Rowley salutes achievement
Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley yesterday extended congratulations to Jehue Gordon on winning a gold medal in the 400-metre hurdles at the IAAF in Moscow.
In a media release, Rowley said Gordon has now joined the “long list of accomplished athletes who excelled to the highest levels in international sports” and “we salute him”.
“The victory is as a direct result of hard work, dedication and, most of all, discipline; these are some of the values which the patriotic citizens of Trinidad and Tobago embrace in their daily lives,” he said.
Rowley said the achievement came at a time when “the nation is in need of wholesome inspiration”.
“We thank this young man for reminding us all that great things are possible for those who invest positive energies in their pursuits,” he said.
