Yes indeed! Sister Merle, congratulations are in order.

Without any doubt, Kirani's success has become emblematic of the spirit of Grenada, Gouyave in particular. We are indebted to this young nan for his constant displaying of grace and statesmanship, even in defeat and we should all be proud of his achievements too date. For me, it is not about the quality of the medal but the quality of the man we had nurtured; his professionalism; his eloquence and his athleticism notwithstanding.

He is a well calibrated gem of an individual, who carries the weight of our country on his shoulders and with expectations so great, that even the common man would be able to appreciate his efforts when winning the gold has eluded him. Some may say it is our expectations that are to high, while others may agree that one has to aim at the top in order to reach there.

Kirani has brought us to that point and I will tip my hat to this young man for another job well done in his efforts to make us all proud.

Congratulations Kirani! Merle, I would have to believe that every Grenadian/Gouyaverian is proud of Kirani. Even if he did not get a medal I would have been proud of him. Just his being able to compete in the Olympics is marvellous! At times I wonder if we expect too much of him and yet as Vernon indicated one must always aim as high as one could.

Good luck going forward, Kirani.


Prediction: with continues work, Kirani will be the 1st to run a 400 m under 43s to take that record from the South African. I say this with great confidence because Kirani has a track record of being a patient hard worker. You will see him doing lots of sub 44s the boom! Mark my words!
