Team Athletics SVG will be holding the 2019 National Championships on May 4th and 5th at the Arnos Vale Playing Field. This year, the championships will be dubbed “The Wendel Hercules TASVG National Championships”, in honour of the late long-distance star.
Wendel Hercules was considered an exceptional national track athlete in his prime, his events being the 800 meters and 1 mile. His endurance and effortless stride earned him the nickname, “Steel Donkey”, and he represented the country in several regional distance races.
Hercules passed away on February 5th, 2017 as a result of stomach cancer.
Clubs and schools wishing to participate will receive registration forms via email, or can solicit form by contacting Team Athletics SVG via facebook.
