Dennis Darling requests his name to be removed off road following separation
Nassau, Bahamas — A bitter separation marred by irreconcilable differences between two track stars has left one partner calling on a Minister to remove his name from a popular roadway on New Providence.
Bahamas Press has learnt the breakup between track superstars Dennis Darling and Tonique Williams has left serious problems in the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture, which honoured Tonique by naming a roadway after her big win at the Olympics.
But the tempest of divorce has left the couple at odds and – not known until now – Dennis wants his name off the highway.
According to reliable sources in the Ministry, following the breakup Dennis Darling made a request of then Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture Neville Wisdom to “Take my damn name off that road!”
Rumours swirled in the media back in 2008 that international star Tonique may have made a comeback and defend her title at world events, however she told the media at the time she was pregnant and was nursing injuries due to her athletic career.
Since that interview the track star has gone silent and underground following the imprisonment of her coach.
Dennis Darling many would remember specialized in the 400 metres. He is currently track and field Assistant Coach at Texas Christian University.
