Well done Dana-Gaye – Grange

Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, has congratulated Dana-Gaye Weller on her “outstanding performance” at the Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Dana-Gaye, competing in her first Paralympic Games, recorded a career’s best of 12.21 metres to finish sixth in the Women’s F51 club throw on Sunday.

Minister Grange said: “I’m so proud of Dana-Gaye!  Making it to the Paralympic Games was no easy feat but she did it. And she promised that she would represent Jamaica well and do her best — and she has by recording her personal best. Jamaica’s athletes are still doing well in Rio and we must give them all the support”.

Last Friday, Alphanso Cunningham recorded a season’s best in the men’s javelin F53/F54.

Jamaica’s other competitor at the Paralympic Games —  Shane Hudson (T46 400m) — will compete on Friday.




We place people at the heart of everything we do.

We believe that culture is the great equaliser and transformer that makes ordinary men and women great.

We believe that gender equality is essential in a modern society.

We believe that an entertained person is a happy person and happy persons make happy societies.

We believe that physical activity enhances lives and sport is the medicine that heals and corrects.

Olivia Grange
