The Ministry of Youth Development and Sports joins Saint Lucians in celebrating the sporting achievements of local track and field star, Julien Alfred, who has not only shown his ability to win on the world stage, but also to gradually improve personal bests.

Having turned 21 on June 10, she continues to deliver on the promise she has made since starting training in her home country of Saint Lucia.

Currently a sophomore at Texas Longhorn, Julien had a standout season winning the women’s 100m semi-final last week with a time of 10.90. She then smoked the competition in the 2022 NCAA Division 1 Outdoor Championship Finals last weekend in Oregon clocking 11.02 seconds.

Alfred was also the first stage runner for the champion 4x100m relay team which clocked 42.42.

Minister of Youth Development and Sports, Hon. Kenson Casimir, commenting on the track star’s recent successes, said: “I continue to be impressed with Julien Alfred’s maturation on the world stage. I have to congratulate her, her local trainer Cuthbert Modeste and her family for a job well done. I must also acknowledge the former Minister of Sports, the Hon. Shawn Edward on the initial support provided to him during his tenure. As a nation, we are now reaping the rewards of our good governance. We will continue to support him as much as possible, while elevating all of our emerging athletes. »

The Ministry of Youth and Sports is committed to continuing to support Julien Alfred, as is the case for all athletes in the agency’s Elite and Emerging Athletes Program.

The Ministry wishes her continued success in her sporting career and looks forward to welcoming her home soon.
