PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
Dear Colleagues,
Contact/Contacto de NACAC:

We are fast approaching the end of
what can undoubtedly be claimed as
a fairly successful year of athletics
for the NACAC area. From the road
races in Bermuda in January which
signaled the start of the season to
the road race in Dominica in
December to close the season, it has
been a full and rewarding year of
activities. I say rewarding because it
is quite evident that athletes are
emerging from all member federations. These good results are due in
a large way to the support that the
NACAC office has been able to provide member federations that submitted requests for new or ongoing
development programmes and the
willingness to correct shortcomings
as identified by member federations.
I have had the pleasure of attending
several events in the area to witness
first-hand the overall interest in our
sport throughout the region. I wish
to congratulate all our member federations that hosted events throughout the year and the overall good
participation by most. We must
encourage the new thrust of the
Women's Committee as we call upon
them to accept more positions of
leadership within our area and by
extension the international arena.
Thanks to all who kept the region
abuzz with activities in their respective countries, but special mention
and congratulations must go to
Athletics
Canada,
President
Greenaway of British Virgin Islands
and our Central American
Competition Director, Carlos
Clemente, who all provided continued information about activities in
their area. Our Public Relations
advisor, Ms. Carmen Clarke, has
been relentless in tracking down
information for our newsletter for
which we are extremely thankful.
There have been some changes in
leadership within our area, but first,
I must congratulate those leaders
who have been re-elected to serve and
wish to thank those who have given
their time but decided to move on.
We wish them every success in their
new activities and sincerely hope we
can call on their expertise and support in the future, if necessary.
The region has lost some leaders
during the year and most recently
within the space of a month, Victor
Lopez lost his father and Evelyn lost
her mother, both in their nineties.
On behalf of all, we extend our condolences to those who have suffered
loss and trust that the Almighty
will sustain them in their time of
grief.
The Regional Development Centre in
Puerto Rico, under the leadership of
Lenford Levy, has fulfilled all their
obligations for 2010 and while not
operating at full capacity in 200910, the High Performance Training
Centre in Kingston did have good
success at the International level by
the athletes at the Centre.
I wish to record my appreciation to
all those leaders who have written or
verbally expressed their satisfaction
with the support they received from
the NACAC staff.
Finally my friends, as I reflect on
2010, I wish to thank all for your

President’s Message cont’d from page 1
positive support throughout the
year, your input for the region's
development, and to all my colleagues on the NACAC Executive
who undertook various responsibilities, sometimes at very short
notice,to provide leadership and
guidance wherever they went..
To your families I wish for them a
very restful, enjoyable and safe holiday season and look forward to all
being refreshed and ready for the
challenges of 2011.
MENSAJE DEL PRESIDENTE
Queridas colegas,
22
El fin de un año muy exitoso del
atletismo para NACAC esta terminando muy rápidamente. Desde las
carreras en Bermuda en enero que
señalaban el comienzo de la temporada, hasta la carrera en Dominica
en diciembre que terminaba la temporada, ha sido un año gratificante.
Digo gratificante porque es evidente
que los atletas están apareciendo de
todas las federaciones de NACAC.
Estos resultados positivos se deben,
en gran parte, al apoyo que NACAC
ha sido capaz proporcionar a los
miembros que han presentado las
peticiones para nuevos programas de
desarrollo o en curso, y la buena voluntad para corregir los defectos identificados por los miembros de la federación.
He tenido el placer de asistir a varios eventos en el área a ser testigo al
interés general en nuestro deporte en
toda la región. Quiero felicitar a
todas nuestras federaciones que fue
sede de eventos durante el año, y
también la participación buena por
la mayoría. Tenemos que animar a
la nueva
Comisión de la Mujer y llamarlas
a aceptar más posiciones de liderazgo dentro de nuestra área y, por
extensión, la arena internacional.
Gracias a todos que manténieron la
región repleta de actividades en sus
países respectivos, pero mención
especial y felicitaciones están debidos
a Canadá Atletismo, Presidente
Greenaway de las Islas Vírgenes
Británicas y de nuestra Director de
América Central, Carlos Clemente,
que todos proveían información continua sobre los actividades en su
área. Nuestro asesora de relaciones
públicas, la Sra. Carmen Clarke, ha
sido implacable en la búsqueda de
información para nuestro boletín de
noticias para los que estamos muy
agradecidos.
Ha habido algunos cambios en el
liderazgo dentro de nuestra área,
pero en primer lugar, debo felicitar a
los líderes que han sido re-elegido
para servir y dar las gracias a los
quienes han dado su tiempo, pero
decidió seguir adelante. Les
deseamos mucho éxito en sus nuevas
actividades y esperamos sinceramente que podemos depender en su
experiencia y apoyo en el futuro, si es
necesario.
La región ha perdido algunos de los
líderes durante este año y más recientemente en el plazo de un mes, Víctor
López perdió a su padre y Evelyn
perdió a su madre, tanto en su década de los noventa. En nombre de
todos, nosotros les extendemos nuestras condolencias a aquellos que han
sufrido la pérdida y tenemos confianza en que Dios les sostenga en sus
momentos de dolor.
El Centro de Desarrollo Regional en
Puerto Rico, bajo la dirección de
Lenford Levy, ha cumplido todas
sus obligaciones para el año 2010 y
mientras que no operan a plena
capacidad en 2009-10, el Centro de
Entrenamiento de Alto Rendimiento
de Kingston tuvo buen éxito al nivel
internacional por los atletas en el
centro.
Deseo recordar mis agradecimiento
a todos los líderes que han escrito o
verbalmente expresado su satisfacción por el apoyo que recibieron del
personal de NACAC. Por último mis
amigos, al reflexionar en el año
2010, quiero dar las gracias a todos
por su apoyo positivo durante todo
el año, su aportación en el desarrollo de la región, ya todos mis colegas
en el Comité Ejecutivo NACAC que
llevaron a cabo diversas responsabilidades, a veces en un plazo muy
corto , para proporcionar liderazgo
y orientación dondequiera que fueran.
Para sus familias deseo una temporada navideña muy tranquila y
agradable y esperamos que todos
serán renovados y listo para los
desafíos del 2011.
EXCELLENT SEASON FOR
JERMAINE GONZALES
Jamaican Jermaine Gonzales
ran the 400M event to a new
national record during the 10th
Samsung Diamond League in
Monaco earlier this year.
Finishing in a NR time of 44.40,
Jermaine “Gunzs” Gonzales
eclipsed the 44.49 Jamaican
record set by Roxbert Martin in
1997.
2010 was a particularly good one for the Racers Track Club, Glen
Mills-trained Gonzales who ended his season:
IAAF World Challenge, Berlin
IAAF Diamond League, Zurich
IAAF Diamond League, London
IAAF Diamond League, Monaco
IAAF Diamond League, Paris

Jamaican Jermaine Gonzales
Under the overall supervision
of Glen Mills, Gonzales has, in
recent months changed his
running style to ensure the
results seen on the track this
past season.
Plagued by injury for the last 3
years he has returned to excellent form in his bid to realize
the potential that many track
experts, and the athlete himself, knows that he will realize.
Coached specifically by Racers
Track Club specialist coach,
former World 400M Champion
Bertland Cameron, Gonzales
has completely overhauled his
running techniques and style
and is now executing a much
more balanced race.
Coach Cameron, who has
direct
responsibility
for
Gonzales' programme, has
had great influence in helping
him to make fundamental
changes in his running style
and is of the opinion that it
won't be long before Gonzales
goes “under 44secs”.

SUSAN G KOMEN BAHAMAS
2011 RACE FOR THE CURE
By Veronica Duncanson
Sunshine Insurance, in its role
as the lead sponsor and organizer for Marathon Bahamas, has
fostered a strategic partnership
between Marathon Bahamas
and Susan G. Komen for the
Cure®, the global leader of the
breast cancer movement and
the world's largest grassroots
network of breast cancer survivors and activists. This partnership will significantly impact
the health of Bahamians, especially in the areas of breast cancer and other women's health
issues.
The Komen Bahamas Race for
the Cure is an opportunity for
people of all ages to celebrate
survivorship, remember those
we have lost to the disease and
make a difference in the fight
against
breast
cancer.
Participation in this event will
help raise awareness about a
health issue that affects thousands of women in The
Bahamas and help make a difference in how breast cancer is
understood, diagnosed and
treated. The Bahamas Race for
the Cure 2011 will be Komen's
second race in the Caribbean
region and one hundred percent
of the money raised by this
event will remain in The
Bahamas to fund breast cancer
programming.
The 5K run/walk will start just
west of The Cove on Paradise
Island and meander around the
south side of Paradise Island
with a turnaround by the Ocean
Club Estates before returning to
The Cove via the north side of
Paradise Island.
Planned
events include a breast cancer
survivor recognition programme
with a special performance by
award-winning gospel artists
Mary Mary.
Teams from all walks of
Bahamian life including corporate Bahamas, religious organizations, families and friends are
encouraged to support this worthy cause. Teams vie for coveted prizes in the categories of
most money raised, best team tshirt, most innovative mascot
and largest team to complete
the event. Prizes for the competitive 5K will be awarded in
the overall and age-group categories.
For the more athletic of the community, the 5K can serve as a
warm-up for Marathon Bahamas
(marathon, half marathon or sixperson relay) which will take
place on Sunday, January 16.
For additional information, on
the Bahamas Race for the Cure,
