October 2016

Sprinter Nyoshia Cain, first-year student in the Faculty of Social Sciences, was the guest of honour at The UWI St. Augustine Campus at the end of September. The 21-year old, who is enrolled in the BSc Sport Management programme, described her Paralympic journey as “great, but challenging especially in terms of physical health”. She added, “I was proud to represent Trinidad and Tobago”. Her coach, Micky Reuben, who also coaches The UWI St. Augustine’s track and field team, emphasised that The UWI was a pivotal part of Cain’s success since Cain used SPEC’s track facilities as part of her training for the Paralympics. See full story and more pictures from her campus visit.
