Canada-based gymnast Marisa Dick may have qualified for the Rio Olympics but that may not be the end of the matter.

Yesterday the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) president Brian Lewis said his organisation had the “sole and final and exclusive” authority for the composition of the T&T team for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

The Trinidad and Tobago Gymnastics Federation (TTGF) replaced Dick with Thema Williams on the eve of the Aquece Rio Test Event Sunday on the grounds of injury.

But Williams and her team, including her coach John Geddert and her lawyers, are disputing that assertion and indicated she received medical clearance.
