Sachin Dennis’ participation at Champs 2020 is in doubt. Dennis is a student at St Elizabeth Technical High School.
Keith Wellington, the school’s principal and mentor for Dennis, said the athlete “is not healthy.”
“There is a high possibility that he might not compete at Champs next year because of illness, not injury,” Wellington, was quoted by the Jamaica Observer.
Dennis missed Champs 2019.
Recently Dennis’ mother said her son was being pressured to switch allegiance to Bahrain.
Dennis, despite being one of Jamaica’s top junior sprinters, in recent years, is yet to make himself available to represent Jamaica.
“As far as I know, and as I said I know a little bit, his intention is to represent Jamaica as soon as he is able to do so physically, and of course, if his performance merits selection to a national team,” said Wellington, who is also president of ISSA.
But as for now, Wellington added: “We are doing whatever we can within our power from medical and other perspectives.”
