In her job as the sprints and hurdles coach at St. John’s University, Aliann Pompey shares her knowledge of track honed over the course of a long and successful career that included four trips to the Olympics. Always one to give back, since retiring from competition after mthe 2012 Olympic Games, Pompey has also stepped up her efforts to enhance track programs in her native Guyana.

This Saturday marks the second Aliann Pompey Invitational, an international track meet held in Georgetown, Guyana. The quality of the field is strong, with athletes from 19 countries. Expected athletes include U.S. triple jumper Donald Scott, sprinter Kim Collins from St. Kitts and Nevis, young Guyanese sprinter Brenessa Thompson and sprinter Ashley Kelly from the British Virgin Islands. Eleven athletes at last summer’s meet went on to compete at the Olympics in Rio.
