The performance of our team in Helsinki during the World Championships of athletics is deserving of the highest commendation.
We did extremely well although understandably there were some disappointment that we did not win the quality of medals that we had anticipated but that is part of the excitement of competition in the field of sports.
All in all, we covered ourselves with distinction and for a country of our size to have earned so many medals resulted in our once again earning the attention and respect of the entire athletics community worldwide.
To all our performers who gave of their best, warmest commendations and heartiest congratulations.
