Golden girl Shirley


Share post:

FORMER SECONDARY TEACHER Shirley Harper has naturally become the symbol of the Senior Games with the personality and speed that has made her the darling of track and field for Barbados’ evergreen athletes.

Short in stature and displaying a fitness of body that would be the envy of many who are decades younger than her 68 years, Harper blazed the track in the 2015 edition capturing gold in the 50, 100, 200 and 400 metres.

Just for measure the pint-sized powerhouse also grabbed gold in the standing broad jump and long jump among the 64-69 competitors. (KB)
