The National Sports Commission (NSC) yesterday made a financial contribution to junior Caribbean table tennis bronze medalist, Pricilla Greaves to assist with her development trip to China.
Director of Sports, Christopher Jones, at the simple handing over ceremony, stated that the NSC was committed to assisting Greaves’ trip to China.
“Essentially the presentation that we would have made here… is part of the NSC’s contribution to young Greaves who will be going off to China a few weeks from now to further her training,” Jones said.
He added: “As you would have noted, she has been performing exceedingly well here in Guyana and of course, we want to expose not only her but all of our athletes to every opportunity possible to further their development in their respective disciplines.”
The young racket wielder will depart for the United States of America on June 24, en-route to China where she will attend two elite table tennis training camps in Shanghai, hosted by the China Table Tennis College. While there she will receive high-level technical and mental coaching in an effort to further develop her tennis career. Greaves, who turns 18 on Monday, will attend two separate camps, the first from June 26 to July 5 and the other from July 6 – 12.
The junior Caribbean girls U18 singles bronze medalist, upon her return, will hope to put her new found knowledge at the upcoming 59th senior Caribbean table tennis championships, set for Havana, Cuba from the July 18 – 23 in the girls under – 21 category. She is also in line to represent Guyana at the South American Youth Games in Santiago, Chile from September 27 to October 8.
