In 2008, I was granted citizenship with St. Kitts and Nevis. I represent them in cycling and in return for their generous support of my athletic dreams, I am committed to helping SKN build a strong cycling federation. One day, they will have an Olympic cyclist, but all good things have to start at the grassroots. Greg Phillip and Winston Crooke of the SKNCF have made incredible strides in growing cycling and triathlon in SKN, and together we will show the world that the Caribbean can–and will– become a force to be reckoned with in endurance sports.
Here’s a little snippet from Wikipedia about St. Kitts and Nevis:
The Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis (also known as the Federation of Saint Christopher and Nevis), located in the Leeward Islands, is a federal two-island nation in the West Indies. It is the smallest nation in the Americas, in both area and population.
The capital city and headquarters of government for the federated state is on the larger island of Saint Kitts. The smaller state of Nevis lies about 2 miles (3 km) southeast of Saint Kitts, across a shallow channel called “The Narrows”.
Saint Kitts and Nevis are geographically part of the Leeward Islands. Saint Kitts and Nevis were amongst the first islands in the Caribbean to be settled by Europeans. Saint Kitts was home to the first British and French colonies in the Caribbean.
Saint Kitts and Nevis is the smallest nation on Earth to ever host a World Cup event; it was one of the host venues of the 2007 Cricket World Cup.
