University of Belize Shines with Twenty-One Medals at ATLIB National Athletics Championships

The University of Belize earned twenty-one medals, including nine gold medals at the ATLIB National Athletics Championships held over the weekend. Three of those gold medals were won by Donovan Grinage, in the one-hundred-meter, two-hundred-meter, and four-hundred-meter relay. Kelsey Balderamos, Coordinator of Sports and Recreation at UB said that the athlete’s performance is a testament to the work that they put in and the support they have received from the university. She added that the athletes train to compete internationally to help them prepare for the nationals.

The competition was held at the Marion Jones Sporting Complex on Saturday, January 27. Mario Vivas, Keemar, Wagner, and Ernesto Lopez also won gold medals. Balderamos says that the next move for UB is to put together a team to compete in the Belize Athletics Association’s National Championships in May.
