Javelin World champion Anderson Peters spends Christmas holidays at home, his first visit since winning the World gold medal. At a ceremony he was given a part of land as a gift for his results. “I just want to express my gratitude to everyone that has supported me over the years,” Peters said. “After the world championships, I’ve been considering what path my future will take in track and field. There’s no guarantee that I would break the NCAA record, and I think it’s best that I begin competing on the professional circuit. Right now is the perfect time for me since I just won the world championship. There’s only one other gold medal that I can win, which is the Olympic Games.”
Long jumper Chantel Malone from British Virgin Islands, described her 2019 track and field season as like a “roller coaster” ride. “Lots of ups and downs,” she said but added, “but overall I feel it was the best season I have ever had, taking away a few things here and there.” She continued by saying, “I think I made a lot of breakthroughs this season, and I am just excited to carry on into next year for Olympics.” Informs Trackalerts.
