Olympian not ashamed for not pulling a medal first try & aiming for 2020 Games
Olympian Akela Jones is not daunted by not earning a medal in Rio as she plans on attending the next Olympiad and training even harder.
She said while many Bajans may have expected her to medal, she felt satisfied in her debut performance among a large number of more seasoned veterans, since as a first timer she ranked 20th in a field of over 40 other athletes.
The young athlete did not get to meet Usain Bolt, but revealed she intends to train harder to do better for the Next Olympiad – she is not sure if to shoot for the 2024 games but definitely the next Olympiad.
On Sunday, she headed back to Kansas University in USA.
