National Stadium Manager Jeff Beckles says the track will be ready for IAAF Bahamas World Relays 2014. During a recent live remote broadcast from The Thomas A Robinson National Stadium, Mr Beckles being interviewed by Mr. Feaste & Nahaja Black, host of Sportsradio 103's Last Shot show revealed that in spite of all the construction activity on the tracks at present, the track that has been totally dug up for re construction will in fact be ready and the construction is on time. The track is beng re-constracted to specific IAAF standards for the Bahamas World Relays being held in Nassau at the stadium May 24 & 25th. Although two major track meets have been held at the stadium since its official opening in 2012, namely the 2013 Carifta Games and The First Chris Brown Invitational, the track was not up to IAAF standards and was not qaulified to host the prestigious world relay games. The Bahamas Government working with the stadium's Sports Authority and IAAF are working feverishly to ensure that this and several other requirements of hosting this world class event are met.
