The Guyana Committee of Services (GCS) has thrown their support behind the third Aliann Pompey Invitational meet which is set for Saturday at the National Track and Field Centre, Leonora.
The committee made a presentation to Aliann Pompey yesterday at the Georgetown Cricket Club, Bourda.
Pompey, the 2002 Commonwealth Games 400m gold medalist, expressed gratitude to the members of the GCS adding that she is overwhelmed with the support and fans will be in for a treat on Saturday.
The USA based Pompey stated that corporate backing is critical for making events of such magnitude a success and she is happy to see the direction the sport has taken.
GCS executive member, Leslie Black said that the presentation was the Committee’s way of showing their appreciation and support for “one of Guyana’s best female athletes.”
