national representative and former sprint star Cydonie Mothersille, will lend their expertise to an already knowledgeable SportsMax panel put together for this weekend’s Gibson McCook Relays.

 Mothersille, who represented the Cayman Islands at four Olympic Games and six World Championships, will bring plenty of experience to the table.  As one of the region’s most recognized names for many years, the athlete specialized in the 100 and 200m sprints.  Mothersille, who was born in Jamaica, can also boast about plenty of relay know-how as a one-time member of the Clemson University 4×100 and 4x400m relays teams, which received All-American honours in 2001.

The 27-year-old Dowie, who remains an active competitor and a member of the famous track club, is best known as a 400m hurdles specialist who represented Jamaica at the 2013 IAAF World Championships.

 Like Mothersill, however, she has plenty of experience getting the stick around the track.  Dowie was part of 4x400m relay that claimed a bronze medal at North America-Central America and Caribbean (NACAC) U-23 Championships and prior to that was a part of relay teams at the CARIFTA Games and 2009 IAAF World Youth Championships. 

As an alumnus of Texas University, Dowie gained All-America honours at the NCAA Championships as a member of the school’s 4x400m relay team.

  The athletes will be joined on the panel by an experienced coach and long-time track and field analyst Raymond ‘KC’ Graham.  The Gibson McCook relays will be broadcast live on SportsMax beginning at 4:00 pm on Saturday.
