Sands, who is also deputy head of the Local Organizing Committee, is confident that the country will host a successful championship.
“With 24 hours to go we are working with the IAAF to make sure that all the I’s are dotted and our T’s are crossed,” said Sands.
During the event, over 100 countries will have the chance to watch the event via the new IAAF YouTube channel that will be providing live streaming.
The IAAF World Relays Bahamas 2014 will take place on May 24 and May 25 at The Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium.
The world's top athletes are expected to be in action in front of an estimated 30,000 spectators.
