Coach Glen Mills of Racers Track Club and Chris Gayle were then presented with cheques for $100,000.00 each by Spartan’s Managing Director, Mickey Haughton-James. Racers Track Club - the club to which Usain Bolt belongs – will use their donation for an ongoing development program at Racers Track Club, while the cheque presented to Chris Gayle is to be used for the development of cricket in an area to be identified by the West Indies cricket Captain.
In a statement to the media after the presentations Haughton-James said the Club's relationship with National Sporting Associations started in the 1970's when cricketer Michael Holding introduced Courtney Walsh, then a schoolboy at Excelsior High School, to the Club. He stated that most of the island’s top athletes had, at some time, trained at Spartan. The list includes cyclists David Weller and Ricardo Lynch, athletes Raymond Stewart, Gillian Russell, Aileen Bailey and Bridgette Foster-Hylton and footballer Fabian Davis. Presently the Jamaica Netball Team, the Jamaica Cricket Team and Glen Mills Racers Track Club as well as several individual National Representative Athletes receive access to Spartan's facilities for their strength training program.
The event was attended by members of the media and by Spartan members
