Akeem Bloomfield sends message of encouragement to KC athletes

By March 26, 2019

With Kingston College set to mount their most serious challenge to win their 32nd title at the ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls Championships that began on Tuesday, former star athlete Akeem Bloomfield, from his home in Florida, sought to ensure that the team was focused on the task at hand.

The talented sprinter who has personal bests of 19.81 and 43.94 over the 200m and 400m, respectively, turned pro in 2018 after two years at the Auburn University. However, his mind has never been far from his former schoolmates who this year are seeking to end the seven-year reign of hated rivals, Calabar High School.

So in a move to motivate them, he sent them a message a week before the championships and after the team won the Digicel Grand Prix Series.

“Congrats on all the progress that everyone has made this season,” said Bloomfield who was sitting on a couch next to Shivnarine Smalling another former KC sprinter.

“Next week is going to be a big week,” Bloomfield continued. “The man dem just remain focussed, stay hydrated, listen to the coach, don’t do any foolishness, like the unnecessary playing, make sure you go to bed.

Bloomfield said based on what he saw from the team this season he believes KC can win Champs for the first time in almost a decade.
