Bahamas' Thomas A. Robinson Stadium Gets Class 2 Certification By IAAF
The int'l governing body for track and field has listed the Bahamas' Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium "as a Class 2 facility," according to Kelsie Johnson of the NASSAU GUARDIAN. The 15,000-seat facility that has an estimated cost of $30M was certified last week by the Int'l Association of Athletics Federations. According to the Certified Athletics Facilities list, posted on the IAAF's website, the Bahamas is "among 416 countries in the world with a Class 2 certification." Only 97 facilities in the world are considered Class 1 by the IAAF. Jamaica's and Trinidad and Tobago's facilities are "slated in the top list" (NASSAU GUARDIAN, 3/2).
