The Miracle Team

Characteristics:

 This article focuses on Edwin Roberts, Kent Bernard, Edwin Skinner, and Wendell Mottley, the track and field athletes from Trinidad and Tobago who won the first Olympic medals for the country at the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. It outlines the motivation of the athletes in becoming involved in athletics. It discusses how the Caribbean athletes are contributing to their country decades after their Olympic victory, such as participating in professional athletic organizations to promote social change and help improve the chance for the country’s youth.

Article Critique:

The strong parts of this article is when she is explaining how each of the five men grew up with running and how she shared each one of their personal stories on growing up racing. There are many different strong areas in this particular article, showing how they give for their country and spend time working with the youth and making their city and country a better place. Throughout the article she quotes different things that the five guys have said so her references come right from the main source which is Edwin Roberts, Kent Bernard, Edwin Skinner, and Wendell Mottley.

Like I stated before she really goes into great detail of each of the five men’s childhood and how they were raised running track. She explains that some of them did not even have enough money for shoes but that did not stop them from racing. This article was very well written and just really tells people about how some Olympic medalist still pay it forward to their country, and are really making an effort to make it a better place.
