FOR THE next three years, the Jamaica Gymnastics Classic will bear the name Supreme Ventures Gymnastics Classic, after Supreme Ventures Limited (SVL) agreed to a sponsorship for that length of time.
The competition took place over the course of two weekends this year, on February 12, 13, 19 and 20.
Speaking at a recent press conference at the Jamaica Gymnastics headquarters, SVL’s Corporate Communications and Public Relations Manager, Chloleen Daley-Muschett, said the group is confident in the country’s ability to excel in gymnastics.
“There is no reason why Jamaica cannot also become a powerhouse in the sport of gymnastics. We have the talent, we have the drive and we have an endless supply of passion. Jamaica is coming along on that journey as we become accustomed to our athletics programmes expanding to include sports that we are not as accustomed to as others,” she said.
Jamaica Gymnastics President Nicole Grant-Brown thanked SVL for their support.
“Supreme Ventures, we thank you for providing such well-needed resources at this stage of our development. It shows that you are one to work with sports in Jamaica from the beginning and not just when they are on top,” she said.
“We want to be Jamaica’s most consistent Olympics sport and most participated by our youth in this country, and we cannot do it without companies like yours.”
Over 100 gymnasts from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Trinidad and Tobago, and Jamaica competed in the championship.
