The domestic lounge of Leonard M. Thompson International Airport in Abaco was a hub of activity on September 3, as officials of several government agencies joined friends and family members to welcome home the island hero, Olympian Bronze Medalist Stephen Gardiner, as he came home from Switzerland where he just participated in two Track & Field events.
This month, hundreds of Bahamian students will report to our public and private schools to begin another school year, bringing with them new school book bags with all the necessary school supplies, thanks to the North Abaco Youth on The Move Association, led by James Ernie Pritchard.
Abaco native, Steven Gardiner, pulled off an overwhelming upset at the Gyulai Istvan Memorial in Budapest, Hungary, as he came from behind to pass former reigning American world champion, LaShawn Merritt.
Steven Gardiner became the fourth fastest runner in Bahamian history on June 6. He dropped his time from 44.98 to 44.64 - a difference that may seem small, but has a huge impact.
