– Joint Services battle-lines drawn
After heading into the final day at the Joint Service Athletics Championship with a 12-point lead last year and still losing the battle, the Guyana Police Force are adopting a “serious” approach to their methods this year ahead of the 2010 Championships.
Speaking with Kaieteur Sport yesterday, Police Coach, Lyndon Wilson said that they will not be taking anything for granted when the competition gets underway Friday at the Police Sports Club Ground, Eve Leary. It will run through this weekend.
“Basically, we are approaching this Championships seriously after we lost last year,” Wilson told this newspaper adding that the police athletes understand their roles because the majority of them are returning from competing at Camp Ayanganna last year.
The ding-dong battle between the two services has seen an oscillation in result over the past three years with Police winning at home at Eve Leary in 2008 and the Guyana Defence Force shocking the Police Force last year after the police were set to win.
The Police have home-turf advantage again this year and according to Wilson they have done all their forensic work to see where they had lost last year and they are now better prepared to come up against a confident bunch of soldiers from Friday.
“I am not too worried because we know what we have to do because of the assessments that were carried out. This is a different year and we will strategically take this title back,” Wilson told this newspaper, adding that they have addressed every concern.
The Police Coach indicated that they have made adjustments to their Female NCOs and Officers’ categories, which were too weak areas last year. He said that was all he will indicate because he does not want to give the soldiers weapons from the police. (Edison Jefford)
