Antigua and Barbuda's first Para Olympian, Jamol 'Grim' Pilgrim had an official audience on Monday, September 03, with Antigua and Barbuda’s High Commissioner in the UK, his Excellency Dr. Carl Roberts and his wife, Mrs. Pauline Roberts. Pilgrim was accompanied by his manager Nigel Pigott and Latisha Greene, committee member.
 
The 90 minute meeting was also attended by Chet Greene, president of the National Olympic Committee as well as members of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism department, and representatives of the Antigua & Barbuda Association – London.
 
“It is great to know that we have so many persons supporting us both here in the UK and back home. It was a very pleasant and encouraging meeting, especially as it gave Jamol a chance to discuss the venue and his progress to date,” explains Pigott.
 
The trio presented the High Commissioner with an official Antigua and Barbuda Paralympics’ Committee shirt.

This meeting has come in the middle of a very busy period of activity: “Jamol has been training really hard and becoming acclimatized to the conditions here in London. We have also had a chance to attend a few events and experience first-hand the electric atmosphere in the stadium.

We know that when Jamol steps onto the track on Friday, September 07 in the Men’s 100m – T42 first of all at 5:12 am Caribbean time and then the finals later that day at 4:00pm, he will be cheered on by our wonderful supporters back home and here in London. Jamol is quietly confident that he can do really well,” adds Pigott.
