Kaina Martinez Echoes Sentiment

Kaina Martinez

Kaina Martinez, who has been quite vocal about her displeasure with not being selected, also granted News Five a Skype interview this evening.  She too demands that the association shows more respect for Belizean athletes.


Kaina Martinez, Athlete

“They should have a little bit more respect for athletes, as well as they should answer to the public.  They should give the reason why the made what they made, how they made their decision, how they come about making the decision they made because honestly I don’t have any answers.  I can’t see why I was not chosen.  I honestly can’t see it, you know, because and to make it even worst, the lies they say about me.  Going out there and just basically giving a character that is of mine, you know, so I don’t know.  I really don’t know.  For me as a team player, I don’t see division.  And if you ask anybody, in front of me or behind my back, if you ever ask them if I’m a good team player they will tell you yes.  I’m not saying it’s because it’s me but it’s just the reality.”


When asked for comment on the matter, BAA President Deon Sutherland respectfully declined, stating only that the matter is under review by the association’s attorney.
