Trinidad Express / “I am very proud and blessed right now”. Racquel Ahye, mother of 2016 First Citizens Sports Foundation Sportswoman of the Year Michelle-Lee Ahye, was filled with emotion, speaking after the one hour-and-a-half-long show at Queen’s Hall Friday night. “This is a very special award for her (Michelle-Lee).
