It was a welcome fit for a king.
Anderson Peters Current World Javelin Champion was recognized at his Alma Mater on his birthday Wednesday October 21st.
Anderson Peters’ coach Paul Phillip led the way as students lined-up outside the St. David’s Catholic Church Wednesday morning.
Addressing the audience, Peters spoke of his journey to greatness which wasn’t easy, but he persevered.
Bringing home Grenada’s second gold medal he says meant a lot to not only him but the entire country.
General Secretary of Grenada Olympic committee Vida Bruno Victor reminds students that it only takes a spark to get a fire going and sports cannot stand on its own, but goes hand in hand with academics.
His journey of realizing his dream was remembered.
Peters is also a multiple time CARIFTA Games champion at the discipline and in 2016 earned a bronze medal at the 2016 IAAF championship in Poland setting a new Grenadian national record and OECS record at the same time.
