The petite Fraser-Pryce gave a candid recount of her struggles and triumphs leading to her Olympic glory at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China. “I used to think I wasn’t good enough to go to the Olympics, until I realised that only I can be in charge of me. That was when I started to focus,” shared Pryce.
Marcia Richards, Chairman of the Planning Committee of the Sagicor Motivational Seminar was pleased with this years’ staging of the event. “Our staff members are extremely pleased and the committee is proud because each year we try to do even better than the previous year. It gets more challenging each time because we take pride in planning a world class seminar,” said Richards.
