[www.inewsguyana.com] – American Based Surinamese Danielle Clark is in Guyana to add to the spectacle that has become the Boyce/Jefford Track and Field Classic scheduled for August 16 and 17 at the Mackenzie Sports Club Ground, Linden.
Clark is a former Inter Guiana Games champion and will be taking on the Guyanese females in the sprint events.
At a training session on Monday afternoon, the Eastern Michigan University Sprinter was very confident of her chances against the local sprinters.
“I’m aiming to break the 12 second barrier and looking for the top spot in both races,” Clark told iNews Sport.
However, the competition will not be easy as the Surinamese will have to face Guyana’s top sprinter who is on scholarship in America, Alita Moore.
“I am looking forward to this competition… I was invited and I’m happy to be here.
“I have heard about Alita Moore and I know it’s going to be good,” the talented sprinter noted.
Meanwhile, Moore, who was training on another section of the ground, was no less confident in her ability to win both the 100 and 200 metres at the event.
“I am prepared and once I’m prepared, I’m always confident,” Moore stated.
The female sprints will also see the inclusion of American Based Guyanese Brenessa Thompson in what is expected to be the clash of the day at the fifth edition of the event the Boyce/Jefford Classic.
