Delano Williams is the first athlete from the Turks and Caicos Islands to have won the title of Junior World Champion and now he has created history again by becoming the first TCI athlete to secure an endorsement from any sporting goods company and much more -- an endorsement from world leader in sporting goods, Nike.
“We are extremely pleased and delighted to congratulate TCI’s Golden Boy, Delano Williams, on his recent accomplishment. We are informed that Delano has secured an endorsement with leading sporting goods company, Nike. Over the years, Nike has signed notable athletes from different sports and we are pleased that our Turks and Caicos Islands are benefiting from such positive international headlines again as a result of Delano’s achievements,” Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM) leader Sharlene Cartwright Robinson said.
“Delano brings much hope to the youth of this country and we are thrilled for him that his hard work and dedication is paying off. We encourage him to remain focused, remain committed and to continue to work hard for his future is indeed bright,” she added.
The opposition PDM said it celebrates Delano yet again and called on the government to realize the importance of investing in the youth and in sports.
