- TEAM TTO THRIVE - 

Agboola Silverthorne is on the TT rugby sevens team headed for the CAC Games.

News - Central American and Caribbean Games

MANAGER of TT men’s rugby sevens team, Curtis Nero, says his team’s homework has been done and they are ready for the challenge at the Central America and Caribbean (CAC) Games in Barranquilla, Colombia. The national men will leave for Colombia on Saturday, with the men’s competition running for two days. Group matches start on Wednesday, followed by the playoff matches on Thursday.

Speaking ahead of the team’s departure, Nero said the TT sevens outfit has developed into a well-balanced unit with “a good mixture of youth and experience.”

“We are well aware of the improvements made by all the teams in the rugby sevens category of the games and know that it will be a challenge.”

He added, “We are up for the challenge as we continue to follow the success of the other sports thus far.”

TT have had a tremendous showing at the CAC Games so far with medals in cycling, swimming and rowing, including double gold by swimmer Dylan Carter and gold by the TT men’s sprint cycling team.

TT rugby men are pitted in Group B, along with Venezuela, Jamaica and Guatemala. Group A includes Colombia, Guyana, Mexico and Costa Rica.

The Larry Mendez-coached TT team qualified for the tournament after finishing fourth at last year’s Rugby Americas North Sevens Championship. Guyana, Jamaica and Mexico placed first to third respectively for their berths into the CAC Games.

After group action on Wednesday, the winner of each group will meet the fourth placed finisher in the other group, while the second place team in both groups will play the third place teams. The winners will advance to the semifinal.

Harvard standout Joseph Quashie has been named team captain, with 11 other players on the roster including: Nigel Ballington, Shakeel Dyte, Keston Earle, Shakir Flemming, Jahreem George, Wayne Kelly, Aasan Lewis, Leon Pantor, James Phillip, Agboola Silverthorn and Keishon Walker. There are also three reserve players: Christopher Hudson, Emmanuel Joseph and Jerome Richardson.

Felician Guerra is the assistant coach. At the last CAC Games in Veracruz, Mexico, TT won bronze in the men’s competition.

A few fans stopped me to ask what I thought about the West In­dies' per­for­mance so far in the se­ries against In­dia in both the T20's and the ODIs.

2019 Pan Amer­i­can Games

The Pan Amer­i­can Games closed on Sun­day but T&T is still cel­e­brat­ing its his­toric per­for­mance, claim­ing 13 medals, the most ever.

I happen to be initially browsing but having caught my attention, I then perused thoroughly, the 2018 Oxford Business Group country report on Trinidad and Tobago.  There were a number of perespectives, snap shots and overviews written. If one wanted to get a well researched and documented overview of the economic and business landscape within the twin Island Republic.

31 July is CANOC day. A message was sent out. That it barely registered or caught the attention of sport stakeholders in the Caribbean is an opportunity not a slight. CANOC must embrace the opportunity to heighten awareness and engage in enhanced outreach to provide information about the organisation.

It is cold in Lima, Peru, host city of the 2019 Pan Am Games. In fact, it is winter here in the South American nation.

With the one-year countdown to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games officially underway, the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee, (TTOC) has announced that TTO athletes will benefit from a pre-games training camp at the Japan Athlete Training Center Osumi, in Osaki Town, Kagoshima Prefecture, as part of Japan’s Host Town Initiative.
