PCC athlete Tamiko Butler won two bronze medals at the PanAm/Caribbean Track Championships. She was the first female from the English speaking Caribbean to finish an elite points race, and Antigua and Barbuda have never medaled in any major track events. Here is a report of how she made the podium.

“The plan between myself and my coach Houshang Amiri was to use this track championship to boost my fitness after a year out with a complicated ruptured disc, which forced me to spend some time in recovery. Road has always been my main focus and will continue to be, but the experience on the track was very worthwhile and has given me the tools to perform on the road with added experience, fitness and speed.

It was my first major championships where I was able to have Houshang with me and this made a huge difference to me mentally, and had a very positive impact on my overall performance. My history of competing for my nation includes very inefficient staffing at events such as these, and the difference of having Houshang there to direct me, prepare me and take care of my competition needs was immeasurable. I learnt a lot about myself and I believe he learnt a lot about me as an athlete in competition mode, which puts us at a greater advantage for moving forward and working on both my strengths and weaknesses. Thanks to Pacific Cycling Centre for helping me to achieve my goals, and make my cycling dreams come true.”
