“As Patron of the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee, I also take this opportunity to recognise our other historic medal-winner Dylan Carter who won this country’s first ever medal for swimming at the Commonwealth Games. Truly this has been an historic meet for Trinidad and Tobago.
“Heartiest congratulations to all our winning athletes at the Commonwealth Games. Kudos also to our other athletes who did not medal but gave it their best. This is all your country can ask of you and I thank you for your effort and sacrifice. Keep shining. You serve as inspiration for those who would follow in your footsteps.”
