Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has promised continued support for Saint Lucian sprinter Julien Alfred, whom he met in the United States while on his current vacation leave.
“It was really great catching up with Saint Lucian Sprint Queen, Julien Alfred whilst in Austin, Texas on my 4 day break,” Chastanet wrote on his official Facebook page Sunday evening.
He observed that Alfred has had an incredible start this year, having most recently broken the Caribbean Women’s Under 20, 200m record only a few days ago.
This was on the heels of having broken the national record just in January of this year as well as a national record in the 60m dash, the Saint Lucia Prime Minister recalled.
“We are all extremely proud of your achievements Julien and will continue to do whatever we can to assist in furthering your success,” he declared.
