____factory proposal



in Venezuela


* VENEZUELA
Caracas
PRESIDENT Hugo Chavez's
plans to build the first Kalash-
nikov factory in the Western
Hemisphere are sowing fears
Venezuela could start arming
leftist Latin American allies
with the fabled Russian assault
rifles, according to Associated
Press.
Chavez denies such ambi-
tions, saying his government
bought 100,000 Russian-made
AK-103 assault rifles and a
licence from Moscow to make
Kalashnikovs and ammunition,
to defend the nation against
"the most powerful empire in
history" the United States.
Political opponents and critics
suspect the president and for-
mer paratrooper has other
intentions, such as providing
foreign allies like Bolivia and
communist-led Cuba with arms
while forging a hemispheric
anti-Washington military
alliance;
"Our president has always
had a warlike mentality, but
now it appears this mentality is
turning into a mission that could
easily extend to other parts of
Latin America," said William
Ojeda, a journalist and former
Chavez ally who plans to chal-
lenge the president in Decem-
ber presidential elections.
Chavez has said "Venezue-
lan blood would run" if the
United States were to invade
Cuba or Bolivia, but has never
said Venezuela would provide
them with weapons.
The administration of US
President George W Bush also
is concerned about Chavez's
intentions.
State Department spokesman
Sean McCormack said Friday
that Venezuela appeared to be
in the midst of an "outsized mil-

itary build-up for a country of
that size and (considering) the
nature of the threats" in the
region.

Questions

"They've already purchased
100,000 AK-103 assault rifles
from Russia. So I'm not quite
sure what else they might need
a factory for," McCormack said.
"It certainly raises serious ques-
tions about what their inten-
tions are."
The first 30,000 of those rifles
have arrived in Venezuela, with
the rest due by year's end.
"If the president says he'll
send Venezuelans to defend
other Latin American nations,
nobody should doubt that he's
willing to send them weapons
as part of his anti-imperialist
vision," Ojeda said.
Ojeda pointed out that Boli-
vian President Evo Morales


referred to Chavez as his "conm-
mander" during a recent cere-
mony commemoratingthe 78th
anniversary of the birth of the
legendary revolutionary
Ernesto "Che" Guevara.
Chavez loaned a helicopter and
pilots to Morales to ferry him
around in the weeks ahead of a
July vote for a constituent
assembly that will rewrite the
Bolivian Constitution.
Chavez vehemently denies
that recent defence deals worth
an estimated US$2.7 billion
constitute a military buildup or
that he poses a threat to region-
al stability, as US officials
allege.
The Kalashnikov is currently
manufactured in more than a
dozen countries, including
Egypt and Poland. Imitations
are also i del produced It is
used by the armed forces of
more than 50 countries as well
as militant groups from
Afghanistan to Somalia.

Bacardi to defend


$75m legal action


FROM page 1B


ronmental concerns with Bac-
ardi's operations had been
ongoing for about seven years.
He alleged that emissions from
Bacardi's plant, which
occurred at least three times a
day, were affecting Venice
Bay.
Mr Whyms claimed he had
lost business from persons who
were unwilling to build homes
under the alleged conditions.
As a result, the plaintiffs are
seeking a Supreme Court
injunction to prevent or
restrain Bacardi from carrying
on its rum manufacturing busi-
ness using methods that cause
the alleged emissions.
Ron Pinder, Parlimentary
Secretary in the Ministry of
Health, told The Tribune he
was aware of Mr Whyms' alle-


nations, and the Department
of Environmental Health had
conducted some site testing at
Bacardi.
He said that since the matter'
was now the subject of legal
action, it would be inappori-
ate for him to comment on
what had been tested or to give
any results.
In response to the lawsuit,
Bacardi said: "For 40 years,
Bacardi and Company has
been operating a production
facility in the Bahamas and has
been called 'an exemplary cor-
porate citizen' because of our
continual corporate actions,
employment opportunities, our
cooperation in working with
local regulatory officials and
our community contributions.
"Welregret that the matter
involving Venice Bay is now
in ligitation. We will vigorous-
ly defend any legal actions
against the company."

Tribune Staff Reporter

VINCENT Peet, minister of
financial services and invest-
ments, told members of the
Association of International
Banks & Trusts (AIBT) that he
planned to create a Working
Committee of financial services
executives to create a new five-
year strategic plan for the indus-
try.
Speaking at the AIBT's
Annual General Meeting
(AGM), Mr Peet reiterated his
government's commitment to
further strengthening the
Bahamas' position in the finan-
cial services industry.
"I would wish to reassure you
of our government's unwaver-
ing commitment to the institu-
tionalised strengthening of the
industry through ongoing co-
operation that is based primari-
ly on public/private sector con-
sultation," he said.
Mr Peet explained that to
achieve this, the ministry will be
taking into consideration the
findings from the Strategy and
Branding Survey of the Finan-
cial Services Sector, which was
carried out by Pricewaterhouse-
Coopers (PwC) on behalf of the
Government.
Mr Peet said that following
consultation with the industry,
he planned to announce the
appointment of a Working Com-
mittee ,comprised mainly of per-
sons from the private sector.
"Their mandate will be to
begin to chart the way forward
based on the results of the strat-
egy and branding surveys. This
committee will also be charged
with the responsibility to com-
mence work on a strategic five-
year plan for the industry," he
explained.
MYr Peet said that following
furkAer consultation with the
industry, the amendments to the
Banks and Trust Companies


Regulation Act for the creation
of private trust companies was in
the final stage of preparation,
and will be presented to cabinet
shortly prior to debate in Par-
liament.
His ministry also plans to col-
laborate with the College of the
Bahamas and the Bahamas Insti-
tute of Financial Services to
establish a School of Financial
Services.
Newly-elected AIBT presi-
dent and vice-president of Pictet
Bak & Trust, Jan Mezulanik,
told The Tribune that the asso-
ciation was looking, forward to
completing its input and having
a final draft of the private trust
companies amendments
returned to the Government.
He said the AIBT will contin-
ue to work with other industry
partners, such as the Bahamas
Financial Services Board
(BFSB).

nerships and support the major
projects are part of the master
plan."
The plan proposed the creation
of an Enterprise Business District
(EBD) for, Arawak Cay, suggest-
ing that this act as an incubator to
provide small businesses with var-
ious supports. These would
include shared administration and
office space, along with business
plan and financing help.
The master plan said: "Greater
opportunities for investment and
participation in Nassau will
enhance civic pride and enhance
the quality of life for citizens.
"The economic impact of the
opportunities afforded through
the EBD has the potential to spur
new businesses and new jobs for
Bahamians."
To implement the project, the
Master Plan has been divided into
seven segments: Government
Green, Downtown Waterfront,
Arawak Cay and Beach, the Liv-
ing Waterfront, Potter's Cross-
ing, Fort Montagu, and
Streetscapes.
Government Green will
involve creating a network of civic
buildings and green spaces in the
heart of Nassau, giving most visi-
tors their first taste of the city. It
will stretch from the cruise ship
dock through Rawson Square to
south of Shirley Street. (,.
This project proposed three
new government buildings.


including a new Office of the
Prime Minister, Senate and Par-
liament. One existing government
building would be/demolished to
expand Rawson Square.
The master plan said the Gov-
ernment Green project would
increase cruise ship visitor spend-
ing by $24 million per annum if
completed, ru!* lmlg in a signif-
I.HIL liunilih j '.f nc" jobs for
B.hj ni. : C ripr- 1c Iurs". Prop-
erty values would rise by $2 mil-
lion; with 275 jobs created and
734,000 more hours per year
spent:in the area by cruise visi-
tors.
The Downtown Waterfront
project, involving a waterfront
promenade,, expanded Straw
Market and Pompey Museum,
would "increase tourist spending
on retail goods".
Property values would rise by
$950,000 in the area, with $32 mil-
lion extra spent by visitors annu-
ally through an additional 396,000
hours of cruise passenger visits.
The Arawak Cay and Beach
project would involve the creation
of 750,000 square feet of new
retail, space, 195,000 square feet
of hotel space, and 130,000 square
feet of office space,
The master plan said: "The
Arawak Cay and Beach project
will have a wide range of positive
economic impacts. New lodging
options will increase the number
of overnight visitors to the Nassau
area.


"New shopping and recre-
ational offerings should signifi-
cantly increase the spending of
cruise visitors.
"Property values will be
increased by new, more intense
development of well-located
properties. The total employment
impact is estimated at approxi-
mately 1,500 new jobs ,or
Bahamians." An additional $77
million per annum is estimated
to be spent in the area.
'The Living Waterfront arpa,
between Elizabeth Street in 1the
west and the parade groundsto
the east, has been forecast to
increase visitor spending by $1 7.4
million per annum, generating
1,800 new jobs. And Potter's
Crossing would include 180,000
squire feet of retail space, with'an
extra $34 million spent in the area
annually, creating 300 new jobs.
However, achieving the mas-
ter plan's vision will not happen
overnight. Frarik Comito, the
Bahamas Hotel Asspciation's
executive vice-president, who has
been heavily involved with the
project, pointed out that Miami
had first developed concepts for
its harbour and waterfront in the
1970s, and the development of
Charleston's waterfront had start-
ed as far back as the 1940s.
He said: "With all of these
areas it takes time. It takes time,
effort and commitment. All these
efforts succeeded as private/pub-
lic partnerships."

Bahamas joins CARICOM



standards-setting body


FROM page 1B


this body during the 2006-2007
fiscal year, whereas it had pro-
vided no funds the previous
year.
He said: "During the present
budget year, the Bahamas
signed the Agreement estab-
lishing CROSQ, the Caribbean
Regional Organisation for
Standards and Quali-
ty.......... We were not members
of this body that will assist us in
the setting up of a proper stan-
dards bureau."
He repeated: "We had
always been included in the
activities of the organisation.
that was established in Decem-
ber 2001. Participation in the
organisation is critical to the
Government's ongoing efforts
to establish a Bureau of Stan-
dards in the Bahamas."
Philip Simon, the Bahamas
Chamber of Commerce's exec-
utive director, said yesterday
that the Bahamas signing on
to CROSQ did not come as a
surprise to him.
When the Government
brought forward its consumer
protection legislation package
- the Consumer Protection
Act, the Standards Act and
Unfair Terms in Consumer
Contracts Act, Mr Simon said
it had indicated that bringing
Bahamian legislation, regula-
tions and standards into line
with the remainder of the
CARICOM region was the
direction they were heading in.
Mr Simon said: "We always
suspected this was the process
they were following. I'm not
surprised that we would sign
on to something, given the
communications we had with
the then Ministry of Trade and
Industry. The Minister at the
time made clear that was the


direction they were going in."
Thus the Bahamas signing
on to the CROSQ is a logical
progression of the policies fol-
lowed by the Government and
Leslie Miller, minister of trade
and industry, who had respon-
sibility for international trade
matters until the Cabinet
reshuffle earlier this year.
Much of the consumer pro-
tection legislation was bench-
marked and derived from sim-
ilar laws elsewhere in the
Caribbean, especially Jamaica,
Barbados and Trinidad. And
the Domestic Insurance Bill
drew heavily on legislation in
Jamaica and Guyana.
While the harmonisation of
Bahamian standards, regula-
tions and laws with those of
other CARICOM countries is
not necessarily a bad thing, Mr
Simon said the "one size fits
all" approach may not always
be best for this nation.
He added that in some cases,
it was not always best for the
Bahamas to follow the same
codes and standards in force
elsewhere..
"It doesn't have to be fol-
lowed in a template type of
fashion from them," Mr Simon
said.
The Bahamian pharmaceu-
tical industry in 2005 bitterly
opposed the draft Bill to
licence and regulate the pro-
fession, as it made provisions
to licence professionals from
other CARICOM states to set
up and conduct business as
pharmacists in this nation.
Winston Rolle, the then
Chamber of Commerce presi-
dent, said the draft pharma-
cists Bill showed why the Gov-
ernment had to look carefully
before signing on to the
CSME.
He described it as "an eye
opener" for Bahamian busi-
nesses, with each industry

needing to understand how the
various trade agreements could
impact their companies and
sectors.
Mr Simon added that the
Chamber was hopeful.that
there would be a structured
approach to consultation now
that international trade was
with the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs, and Mr Mitchell had
indicated this would be his
strategy.
However, becoming a full
member of CROSQ and the
opening of the door to har-
monisation is likely to cause
some concern about 'CSME
creep'- the Bahamas being
unwittingly led into the organ-
isation.
Mr Simon said "that's exact-
ly" what was happening,
"straight across the board".
The Prime Minister, though,
has promised full consultation
with the Bahamian people
before this nation signs on to
any international trade agree-
ments.
Mr Simon pointed out that
unlike other Caribbean


nations, such as Barbados,
Jamaica and Trinidad, which
had been preparing for trade
liberalisation for years, the
Bahamas had "very little insti-
tutional capacity" to support
bodies such as the Standards
Bureau.
He added: "We've got a long
way to go. We should not
adopt legislation without the
institutional capacity to sup-
port it."
The CSME's objectives of
political and monetary inte-
gration are similar to those of
the European Union (EU).
Under the EU, national coun-
tries have been hit with count-
less directives requiring them
to bring national policies into
line with that of the entire
region.
Rick Lowe, a member of the
Nassau Institute economic
think-tank, said of the decision
to join CROSQ: "It's just a
typical government lack of
transparency and they don't
want people to know what's
going on in order to prepare
themselves."

facing the Government and its
private sector partners in trans-
forming downtown Nassau
into an attractive tourist desti-
nation once again, full of
Bahamian history and culture.
Revitalising harbourfront
Nassau, between Montagu in
the east and Arawak Cay in
the west, through moving the
commercial shipping facilities
to a new port located in south-
western New Providence,
addressing the area's trans-
portation issues and upgrad-
ing it across the board is a
long-term project.
Several sources spoken to by
The Tribun e believethat Prime
Minister Christie's greatest
achievement and his legacy
to the Bahamas could come
from kick-starting downtown
Nassau's transformation, some-
thing that could generate
major economic and social
spin-offs.
His precise, methodical
approach to planning has also
drawn praise from the private,
, sector.
Mrs Phillips said: "Nassau,
one of the oldest cities in the
Western Hemisphere, a city
whose history is rich in
romance and intrigue, whose
narrow lanes and wide avenues
are filled with buildings that
can never be replicated, is
down on its heels. She is shab-
by, dirty, lacklustre and tacky.
She suffers from congestion,
pollution, lack of planning and
management.
"In short, the heart of our
country is in critical c 1Initi, ,n
and when the I-. ill ,.l 1 ,I1
takes a bit of soul with it. Yet,
the bones are good the
patient can be saved."
SThe video presentation
showcased a number of Bay
Street retailers giving their
views on the area's problems,
such as the lack of parking for
residents and Bahamians, and
why it was unattractive to all
shoppers.
Norman Hoffer, of.Hoffer
& Sons and HofferSport,
described the downtown Bay
Street shopping experience as
"very uncomfortable". Point-
ing to the various jitney stops,
he said that while he under-
stood that the drivers had to


stop somewhere to pick up and
drop off passengers, it caused
tremendous traffic congestion
and noise pollution.
Mr Hoffer said: "Kelly's
dock creates a real barrier for,
pedestrians. It's a bit like trying
to run the gauntlet when you
pass Kelly's."
He added that property
owners on Bay Street, espe-
cially east of East Street, were
not prepared to reinvest and
upgrade their properties,
unwilling to put more capital at
risk given the area's down-at-
heel image.
Another retailer said on the
video: "Parking is a major
deterrent. People are not com-
ing to Bay Street."
"We need the local cus-
tomer. That's our repeat busi-
ness. We had them some time
ago," a retailer said.
Looking at the way ahead,
Inga Bowleg, John Bull's mar-
keting manager, said: "We
know a management authority
is essential to make this hap-
pen and take Bay Street to the
next level."
Charles Kloriaris, the Nas-
sau Tourism and Development
Board's chairman, said Nas-
sau's city had to be viewed as
an economic vehicle.
He added: "Together, we
can address the city's deepest
problems and solve them. The
future demands it."
Mr Klonaris said the three
key steps to revitalising har-
bourfront Nassau were the
relocation of all commercial
shipping facilities, along with
their containers and trucks, to
a new port between Common-
wealth Brewery and the
The next step was to create a
comprehensive transport sys-
tem, and redeveloping the
waterfront to enhance public
access:
Finally, Mr Klonaris said the
creation of a Business
Improvement District (BID)
was needed to oversee down-
town's redevelopment.
Mrs Phillips said Nassau's
regeneration could follow the
example of Charleston in the
US, which was also defined by
its role as a harbour ands
,major shipping port.
Charleston exploited its his-
toric structures to make the
city a major tourist attraction.


"Nassau, one of the oldest cities
in the Western Hemisphere, a city
whose history is rich in romance
and intrigue, whose narrow lanes
and wide avenues are filled with
buildings that can never be
replicated, is down on its heels.
She is shabby, dirty, lacklustre and
tacky. She suffers from congestion,
pollution, lack of planning and
management. In short, the heart
of our country is in critical
condition and when the heart
dies, it takes a bit of soul with it.
Yet, the bones are good the
patient can be saved."


- Diane Phillips


Mrs Phillips said: "Preserv-
ing and restoring the beauty
that is Nassau and re-defining
the visitor experience will reap
untold economic benefits.
Look at what it has done for
Charleston, in many ways, a
sister city to Nassau.........
"As those old homes and
churches and shops were lov-
-ingly i'-.stored b y- tlhe4i&istor4ic
Charleston' Foundation and
marketed by the Convention
and Visitors Bureau and oth-
ers, they combined to create a
product that was an over-
whelming success, exceeding
all expectations.
"Last year, more than four
million visitors flocked to
Charleston. With an average
daily hotel rate of $116, con-
siderably lower than Nassau,
Paradise Island or Cable
Beach, and with admission to
sites and attractions, they
pumped $2.8 billion into the
Charleston tri-county area.

rectly for nearly half of all jobs.

Opening lead queen of hearts.
Memorizing the standard safety
plays is clearly beneficial, but if you
don't appreciate the reason behind a
safety play, you might not handle it
correctly if it appears in a guise
slightly different from the one you're
accustomed to.
For example, take the case where
you have A-K-J-10-9 facing
dummy's 4-3-2. If your goal is to win
five tricks, you do best by cashing
the ace first before crossing to
dummy to finesse against the queen.
The ace is cashed first to protect


against the singleton queen in the
West hand.
If the finesse succeeds and the suit
is divided 3-2, your mission is
accomplished, and if your left-hand
opponent shows out on the second
round, you still make five tricks by
returning to dummy to repeat the
finesse.
- The spade setup in-today's hand
resembles the aforementioned com-
bination, but there's an important dif-
ference. Observe that if, after losing
the first three heart trick, you cash
the spade ace before attmpting a
finesse, East later scores a trump
trick, and you go down one.
The big difference in the present
case is that you can't afford to cash
the ace to guard against a singleton
queen in the West hand because you
expend dummy's all-important nine
in the process, making it impossible
to pick up the Q-8-x-x in the East
hand. The proper method of play is to
lead the jack and take a first-round
finesse. If you do, you make the con-
tract
Expressed mnothemafically, the.
reason for preferring the immediate
finesse is that if the spades are
divided 4-1, with West holding a sin-
gleton, the singleton will be a low
spade four times as often as it will be
the queen. Hence, the odds strongly
favor a first-round finesse.

THERE was a major upset during day
two of the T-Rex Junior Nationals being
played at the National Tennis Centre.
Boys under 18 number one seed Ceron
Rolle, considered to be one of the
nation's top juniors, ran into a red hot
and hungry William "JJ" Fountain (pic-
tured) in the quarterfinals. Fountain dis-
played patience and played a smart match
in disposing of Rolle 6-1, 4-6, 6-0.
The day before, Rolle got by the tal-
ented Justin Lunn in straight 6-3, 6-3 but
Sunday was a whole different story. Foun-
tain had the answer for Rolle in what
was a highly anticipated match. With his
victory in the quarterfinals, JJ will now
play Jacob Fountain in the semis with
the winner advancing to the finals.
Jacob Fountain defeated Ricardo
Demeritte 6-0, 6-1. In the other quarter-
finals match up, it was Paul Aranha
knocking off Ashwood Hall.7-6, Ret.

Collegiate athletes steal





the show in the 400m


* TRACK AND FIELD
By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter
WITH Chris Brown opting
not to take part in the men's
400m event at the nationals
held over the weekend, every-
one thought that the national
record holder in the event,
Avard Moncur, would cruise
to an easy victory. But they
didn't count on tough compe-
tition from collegians Andret-
ti Bain and Michael Mathieu.
At the end of the prelimi-
naries held on Friday night,
Mathieu would post the fastest
time of 47.04 seconds, leaving
national record holder Mon-
cur to accept the second seed-
ed time of 47.23 seconds.
Bain's preliminary time of
48.33 seconds would take him
out of the hunt for the title.

Finals
Both Bain and Mathieu
warned not to take their times
as a fluke as the duo were
ready to bring the heat in the
finals.
The race was pretty even
out as the field approached
the final 200m, but Mathieu
and Bain moved up another
gear as they went around the
bend.
At the 50m marker Bain
looked to have sealed the vic-
tory, but a last second trip just
before the finish line saw
Mathieu sneak past him for
the win. Only ten hundredths
of second separated Mathieu
from Bain, the winning time
recorded at 46.59 seconds,
with Bain's time 46.60 sec-
onds. Finishing in third was
Moncur in 47'.04 secoiids and
Jamal Moss in 47.47 seconds.
Just before the official times
were posted Bain said:

"First of all let me thank
God for allowing me to come
out here and run. I was look-
ing forward to the race, I got
out pretty good and then on
the back stretch by the third
100, the wind was blowing
pretty hard so I didn't want
to press to much there
because I wanted to come
home strong in the last 50m.


"But as I came down my
hamstring locked up on me
and I am just thanking God
for allowing me to finish. It
was pretty strong, after Chris
left the race was wide open
but I knew and expected a
race from all the guys in the
field, Tim, Carl and Avard. I
knew that if anyone of us had
put together a good race and


executed it we would have
come out on top."
Bain who recently complet-
ed his collegiate season for
Oral Roberts said he was
pleased with his season thus
far even though his outdoor
season was pretty tough.
He added: "I had a pretty
good indoor season and then
the outdoor season came and


I had a lot of my meets can-
celled so that threw me back a
bit, but in the end it was still a
long season and I am really
tired now. I will be looking
forward to the upcoming sea-
son though."
The time recorded by both
Bain and Mathieu will qualify
them for a spot on the upcom-
ing senior CAC team.


In the women's 400m, the
battle will be between Sasha
Rolle and Shakeitha Henfield,
both members of the record
setting women's 4x400m relay
team. In the end Rolle would
hold off Henfield to take the
race in a time of 54.32 sec-
onds, Henfield's time was
54.72 seconds and in third was
Julie Nixon in 1:02.09 seconds.

* TRACK AND FIELD
By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter
AFTER posting the fastest
time by any Bahamian male
in the 200 metres for the
year, quarter miler Chris
Brown might have a tough
decision whether to focus
on the half lap event or stick
to his specialty -.the 400
meters.
Over the weekend, Brown
blazed down the homestretch
at the Thomas A Robinson
stadium to not only post the
fastest time in the 200m by
any Bahamian male for the
year but to leave the nation-
al record holder in the event,
Dominic Demeritte, to trail
in his wake. Brown ran 20.56
seconds for the win, leaving
Demeritte to settle for sec-
ond in a time of 20.89 sec-,
onds while Dennis Darling,
another quarter miler, took
third with 20.90 seconds.
The time ran by Brown
places him among the world
leaders in the event.
The 200m, one of the heat-
ed events at the annual
Bahamas Association of Ath-
letic Associations (BAAA)
national championships, saw
Demeritte settle in the blocks
with the fastest time.of 20.71
seconds, but Brown's explo-
sive first 50m left the other
athletes in the field to play
"catch-up". By the 100m
marker Brown had a slight
five metre lead on the pack
with Demeritte and crew
closing in quickly.


But Brown's endurance
made it difficult for them to
reel him in as he kicked it
into another gear to close the
race.
He said: "I came into the


race with an open mind, not do this one in particular for
underestimating none of the my fans and everyone who
guys. But first of all I would supported me through the
like to say thank you to the years.
Lord for allowing me to "I wanted to show the
come on the home soil and Bahamian crowd that I could


have gotten the job done. I
know a lot of people were
counting me out of it but I
had to put the race together.
I knew that I had a lot of
experienced 200m runners in

DEBBIE Ferguson-McKenzie is back,
and the double victory at this year's
Bahamas Association of Athletic Associa-
tions (BAAA) nationals sealed the deal.
Ferguson-McKenzie walked into both
the 100 metres and 200 metres events with
the fastest times and walked away with
two seasonal bests.
In the 100m, Ferguson-McKenzie
cocked 11.06 seconds for the win over
Tamicka Clarke who ran 11.45 seconds
and Savethda Fynes in 11.52 seconds.
Ferguson-McKenzie's fastest time so far
in the 100m was recorded at 11.14 seconds
at a meet held in Ostrava on May 30th.
The 200m time set by Ferguson-McKen-
zie was recorded at 22.40 seconds, her pre-
vious time in this event was 22.76 seconds
ran at a meet in Carson, California, on
May 21st.
After the 200m Ferguson-McKenzie
said: "I am not too sure what the time was
(in the 200), but I just wanted to get it
over and done with. At this point I am just
using all the races this weekend as training
for me, so I am very pleased.
"In the 200m I could hear Christine's
footsteps in the back. She is a quarter mil-
er and so I know one thing about a sprint-
er is we will be able to get out. But they
(quarter milers) don't give up because they


have that much endurance so they will roll
you right in, so it is always good competing
against her, she is a great competitor and I
think it makes the race even better."
It was a loaded field for the finals of the
men's 100m, with more than three athletes
running under 10.50 seconds in the pre-
liminaries. :
The three fastest times heading into the
finals of the events were recorded at 10.35
seconds by Derrick Atkins and Jamal Rolle
and 10.45 seconds by Rodney Greene.
With the large crowd to perform in front
off, Atkins would get the better of the trio,
taking the event in an impressive time of
10.03 seconds, the fastest time recorded
by a Bahamian so far. Atkins held off the
threat posed by Rolle who finished up in a
time of 10.31 seconds and Greene in 10.38
seconds.
This would be the second '100m for
Atkins this year. He said: "This is truly a
blessing, a season's best and personal best
for now. I feel pretty good, confident in
myself, but my goal is to make the team
and produce some faster times before we
head off.
"I am hoping to peak around the time of
the meet, this being im second lOm1 for
the year. Last year I was putting up some
fast times but I got injured late, so I am
hoping to stay healthy, event though I am
still nursing that injury from last year, oth-
er than that I am just trying to stay focus on
what's ahead."

the race, so I didn't want to
underestimate anyone, I
came out here and executed
and I'm just thanking God
for the victory.
"I was very concerned
about the competition. When,
you look at the field I had;
Dominic in the front of me
and Jamal in the back along
with some of the other
younger guys, plus I haven't
ran the 400m in four years so
to come out and get the vic-
tory feels pretty good.
"I don't know if I am real-
ly going to stick with it, all I
wanted to do this weekend
was get a little speed workout
in and bring a little more
excitement to the event. Next
year nationals I might run the
800m, who knows."
The men's 200m wasn't the
only event that saw quarter
milers work on their speed,
lining up in the women's
event alongside national
record holder Debbie Fergu-
son-McKenzie was Olympic
finalist Christine Amertil.
The race, which was sup-
pose to host Olympian and
World Championships gold
medalist Tonique Williams-
Darling was only contested
by Ferguson-McKenzie,
Amertil and young and
upcoming sprinter Sheniqua'
Ferguson.
At the end of the event;
Ferguson-McKenzie took the
top prize in a time of 22.40
seconds. Amertil clocked
22.70 seconds leaving Fergu-
son to settle for third in a
time of 23.70 seconds.
Amertil said: "I needed a
little speed work for the
400m and I always tell myself
that if Debbie's going to be in
it I am going to get her one
of these years.
"It felt pretty good on the
turn but that 100m speed
started to kick in for Debbie.
I tried to hang on in there
but she was just outstanding.
I only run the 200m to help
me along with the 400m
so I welcome the extra
push.
"Right now. I am trying to
get into the season, even
though it is well into June, I
had to take some time of,
opening up with Worlds and
the Commonwealth Games
following so close behind. I
had a little back issues, but I
still have to be pleased with
everything that happened so
far."
Williams-Darling did not
compete in any event at the
nationals due to a nagging
groin injury.
