The Olympic Games call on the best athletes in the world to compete and inspire the next generation to achieve their own greatness and it is safe to say no one ever won an Olympic medal without practice.
At 8 a.m., Saturday Port Isabel High School Stadium will play host to the South Texas Elite Throws and Jumps Clinic. USA Track and Field Olympic thrower and motivational speaker Michelle Carter will speak to students. Carter came in 15th place at the 2008 Olympics.
Students from 8 years of age to 18 will be accepted to the clinic. There will be a separate division for coaches who want to enhance their skills.
