It will be We Gatherin’ in athletics when the National Primary Schools’ Athletics Championship (NAPSAC) returns home to the National Stadium for 2020.

In a bit of irony, the new Napsac committee, chaired by the National Sports Council’s Assistant Director of Sports Mona Alleyne, yesterday issued a release indicating the popular sporting event would return to the Stadium from February 17.

NAPSAC moved to the Usain Bolt Sports Complex in 2016 after the deteriorating roofs at the Stadium posed a grave danger to patrons.

Those roofs were removed but concerns have recently arisen over the poor state of the track. Large cracks and worn-down areas expose the underlying concrete. (EZS)
