"Franno" urges "Champs" organizers to consider rescheduled date if Covid 19 is contained

Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Jordan Forte

Tuesday was supposed to have marked the start of the ISSA Boys’ and Girls’ Athletics Championships which has been cancelled for only the second time on the boys’ side and third occasion in the girls’ section in its history due to the Covid-19 pandemic. But the cancellation hasn't gone down well with many persons  including renowned track and field coach Stephen Francis, who blasted the way the decision was reached.

Francis believes the decision to cancel the annual event was not given enough thought and is urging to organizers to reconvene and consider a rescheduled date for later this season if and when the coronavirus is brought under control in Jamaica.
