Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, has congratulated Levern Spencer on her gold medal win at the 2018 Central American and Caribbean Games held in Barranquilla, Colombia.
“Levern continues to be a shining example of what hard work and perseverance can accomplish,” Chastanet wrote on his Facebook Page.
He noted that the latest win comes just months on the heels of her gold medal win at the Commonwealth Games in Australia.
“On behalf of my government and the people of Saint Lucia, I would like to extend our sincerest appreciation for Levern putting Saint Lucia on the map once again. She continues to be a shining example to our youth and an inspiration to all aspiring athletes,” the PM said.
In response to the post, one comment called for Spencer to be given, if not a house, at least a house lot at Cap Estate.
Levern Spencer and Trinidad and Tobago’s Keshorn Walcott were the standout performers at the 23rd Central American and Caribbean Games in Barranquilla, Colombia on Thursday.
Spencer was the only jumper in the 13-woman final to clear 1.90m to claim a third title after victories in the 2010 and 2014 editions of the Games.
