The RJR Foundation recognised Paralympian Sylvia Grant’s achievements with a special award at its recently held National Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year Award Ceremony.

Sylvia has had the distinction of representing Jamaica on several occasions at paralympic international competitions and is the Americas regional record holder for the Women’s F52/53 Javelin.

She is, therefore, comfortable on the world stage and is a seasoned campaigner.

Her eyes are now set on Lyon, France where many paralympians will gather at the IPC’s Athletics World Championships.
