Latest Olympic News

The Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees (CANOC) has been involved in an initiative amongst members of the international Olympic Movement to assist the Olympic sports fraternity in member countries affected by the passage of Hurricane Irma.

CANOC has been in discussions with the Pan American Sports Organisation (PASO) which itself has been in communication with the International Olympic Committee, in the recent past. Already the International Olympic Committee’s Executive Board has committed $1m USD to assist its members in the Caribbean, with indications that based on need, this figure can increase. PASO stands willing to make additional contributions based on need.

President of CANOC, Mr Brian Lewis, and President the Association of National Olympic Committees of the OECS (ANOCES) have already communicated their empathies with their respective members that include the Commonwealth Games Associations of Anguilla and Turks and Caicos Islands.

CANOC and PASO member, Keith Joseph, has also been in discussions with the respective organisations and met yesterday with the IAAF President, Lord Sebastian Coe, the President of PASO, Mr Neven llic, and representative of Olympic Solidarity, James McLeod, to discuss the matter of synthetic tracks for countries in the Caribbean that do not as yet have synthetic tracks and or whose tracks have experienced significant damage resulting from the passage of Hurricane Irma. Mr Joseph has been assigned to investigate the status of the aforementioned counties and submit a report and recommendations to the institutions involved in yesterday’s discussions.

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.

GOLFER Ysabelle Lawrence and martial arts’ Gabrielle Wood brought team TTO’s triumphant performance at the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, Peru to an end yesterday, hours before a ceremony closed the curtains to the quadrennial event after more than two weeks of action.

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.

I came in for some withering criticism recently for adopting the position, that as painful as it is, the current intolerable crime situation is an opportunity for T&T to recalibrate.

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.
