Bahamas Athletics

Leaving his track contenders to eat his dust in the Under 18 boys, 4X100 relays, Adrian Curry ‘fly like an eagle’ to finish first in his events.  “I felt confident and I knew what I had to do to win the event” said 15 year old Curry, as his took a deep breath to regain his composure.  In short, he said, “I took the advice of my coach, Ms. Woodside, who is the head coach for Club Monica Athletics, which participated in the T. Bird Flyers Track and Field Classic, January 13 and 14, 2017 at the Thomas A. Robinson Stadium.  

The strong contender and dazzling young athlete, Curry, is also a proud student athlete who attends the St. Augustine College (SAC), located on Bernard Road, East of New Providence.  Curry said that his projection and targeted goal for this year, 2017, is to “focus on increasing his endurance to finish the race and continue working on his strides and key techniques.

As a grade 10 student at SAC, Curry contributed his outstanding performances to Coach Woodside’s additional advice to “sprinting the first meter of the race, allowing the curves on the track to sling shot you down to the (100 yards) straight, and then giving it all you have with speed to the finish line.”  These advices were truly revealed and distinctively executed by Curry on the track.  

Further, Curry’s career goal is to make the International teams for the upcoming meets such as the CARIFTA Games, the IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federation) World Relays as well as top international events as the Olympic Games, World Games, World Championships, and World Indoor Championships and more.  

With two important upcoming events in April, Curry acknowledge that his plans are to prepare and qualify namely for the Carifta Games which will be held in Curacao, April 15, 16, and 17, 2017, followed by the IAAF World Relays that is scheduled for debut at the Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium in Nassau, Bahamas, April 22nd and April 23rd, 2017.  

Additionally, Curry expressed that he “will attempt to break more records and medal at the CARIFTA Games, which will be staged in Curacao and hosted by the Curacao Track & Field Association (CAB), which founded a foundation, specifically to organize CARIFTA 2017 Games, and have it as professional as possible.”  

Giving strong accolades and high respect to his grandfather, Curry said that his running this past weekend and more in winning events “is for my grandfather who passed away, early last year, 2016 (in March).  Also, this uprising juggernaut track star, expressed sincere thanks to his family and friends for “pushing me more.”
