Bronze medal in basketball upgraded to silver

Story Picture
There’s big news on the Belizean basketball scene tonight as word trickled through town that our boys have had their bronze medals upgraded…to silver. News 5 understands that organizers of the Nineteenth Central American and Caribbean Games have declared Belize as second place finishers after tests revealed that at least one Puerto Rican player had unsportsmanlike drugs in his system. Reports are that Puerto Rico has not contested the decision. We were unable to contact local team managers for comment, but to be sure, it’s silver smiles all around.
