Josephine Pinto Receives IAAF Veteran Pin
Josephine Pinto, a longtime track and field technical official and administrator on Guam, was recently awarded the prestigious International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) Veteran Pin award by the world athletics governing body for her long and meritorious service to the course of world athletics within the IAAF. Pinto was one of three recipients from the Oceania Area and one of 18 worldwide to be recognized at the 52nd IAAF Congress in Doha, Qatar in September.

Around Island Relay
The 2019 Around the Island Relay welcomed nearly 70 participants ranging in age from 8 through to 78 and despite the start time adjustments having to be made for the recent impact of daylight saving, everyone made the start line on time and keen to tackle the 25 or so kilometers of one of the worlds most picturesque road relay locations.
Sunday the 3rd of November dawned a little overcast but it also delivered the perfect conditions for the staging of the Relay. A briefing on safety and course layout from the officials was the usual entree to the main event and with the individual walkers and those tasked with the first leg of the team walk event ready and rearing to race the mass start got underway at 6.00am.
