Twin Sisters Return to Jamaica on Athletic Scholarship

Well-known track and field athletes, Ashanti and Ashonti Carr, have received athletic scholarships. They return to Jamaica this Sunday where they will continue to acquire their degrees at the University of Technology. The twins have been track and field athletes for the past nine years in various disciplines and their dedication is now reaping rewards. News Five spoke to the Carr siblings early today as they wrapped up their final training session at the Marion Jones Sporting Complex.

“I participate in long jump, triple jump and we are expecting to leave on Sunday. And she participates in four hundred and eight hundred.”



“Talk to us about the training that you guys have had to sustain particularly as it comes to COVID-19. We know that there are regulations in place. How did you guys actually prepare? Was it a challenge for you?”

“The main purpose as of now is to continue our studies at the University of Technology however we are on the track and field team. So we are just training and we have competition within this year and so hopefully we train by then and we reach on the track and get selected to go and compete.”
