Lucas on show at President’s Classic

 Josanne Lucas is among the athletes expected to be on show at today’s President’s Classic, at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port of Spain.

Lucas, the 2009 IAAF World Championship women’s 400 metres hurdles bronze medallist, was forced out of the 2012 London Olympics with a serious knee injury, and missed the entire 2013 season. But she is back on track in 2014, and keen to battle her way back to the top.

The President’s Classic is an invitational meet, and will also feature sprinters Rondel Sorrillo, Jonathan Farinha, Kyle Greaux and Reyare Thomas, and half-milers Jamaal James, Alena Brooks and Jessica James.

The first event at the Crawford Stadium today is scheduled for 4.20 p.m.
