            [post_content] => World Renowned Sprint Star Usain Bolt says he is confident that he can destroy both his world records he set at the World Champions in Berlin in 2009.

The 27-year old has gone on record, promising to break both his 100m and 200m records following his return to train on the weekend after a short spell on the sideline due to a foot injury.

Bolt has the prestigious honour of holding both the 100m and 200m records with times of 9.58 seconds and 19.19 seconds respectively.

“I have discussed with my coach what it will take to lower these records, and he thinks it’s very possible,” said Bolt, who is coached by Glen Mills at the Racers Track Club.

“I trust my coach completely, so if coach Mills says they can be broken, then I know I can lower them.”

Bolt's manager Ricky Simms stated a few weeks ago that his client had been sidelined following pains in his feet that made it impossible for him to commit to the training programme.

However, the five time IAAF World Male Athlete of the Year insisted he was not overly concerned with the setback and said he expects to be back at his brilliant best very soon.

“Setbacks are a part of track and field. I have come to accept that a long time ago. I had mine, and (I’m) now back in training preparing for the upcoming season.”

Bolt states that he is looking forward to a good showing the season and also stated he was looking forward to next month's IAAF World Indoor Relays in the Bahamas.

“(The IAAF World Relays) should be a lot of fun. Relays are always the best part of any championship for me,”  said Bolt.

“Jamaica has a lot of talented athletes, so I have no doubt that we can lower the (4x200m) record,” added the six time Olympic Gold Medallist .

The 25 year old, Kemar Roach escaped serious injury when his BMW Sedan crashed early Saturday morning. The fast bowler lost control of his vehicle in what was said to be very wet conditions. The car flipped multiple times before landing in the 3Ws Park.

Roach received a cut to the head as he was taken away from the scene in an ambulance. He later took to social media to express he was in good spirits and sustained no serious injuries. Roach has not represented the West Indies in almost a year due to injuries and one can only hope that his accident does not provide a further setback to his return. The player who has represented the West Indies in over 63 ODI's and 23 Test Matches was considered one of the fastest and accurate bowlers and one that would carry the team forward. We thank God he was speared from any serious injuries and he can hopefully return to playing the game he loves so much.

            [post_content] => For the first time in decades, Good Friday was reinstated as an official National Holiday in Cuba. On Tuesday, A report in the Communists Party Newspaper 'Granma' stated that the holiday was approved by the National Assembly in December of last year and that Good Friday will now be acknowledged on an annual basis.

The new regulation was not to take effect until June of this year, however an intervention by the Ministry of Labour and Social Security ensured that the holiday was observed on Friday.

The Catholic feast was temporarily restored as an "exceptional" circumstance on April 6, 2012 following a humble request made to President Raul Castro by Pope Benedict XVI during his visit to the Island in March of that year.

Last year Cuba acknowledged the Holiday without stating that it was an actual celebration of Good Friday, however the service conducted by Cardinal Jaime Ortega at the Havana Cathedral was aired live on National television.

This however isn't the first time, Cuba has backtracked on its regulations, after Pope Benedict's predecessor - John Paul II persuaded then Cuban President Fidel Castro to reinstate Christmas as a holiday.

The relationship between the Cuban Government and Catholic Church strained after the expulsion of priests and the suppression of religious celebrations followed Fidel Castro's revolution in 1959.

Pope John Paul II historic visit in 1998 saw the exodus of turmoil between to the organizations. However more significant improvements have taken place under Castro's younger brother - Raul and the reinstatement of Good Friday could have been just the push needed to get the wheels properly in motion.
