International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach will deliver opening remarks at the Advancing Women in Leadership Roles Forum for Europe in Vilnius this week.

The event, due to run from Tuesday (October 10) to Wednesday (October 11), will be hosted by the Lithuanian Olympic Committee (LTOK) in cooperation with the IOC.

Janez Kocijančič, Acting President of the European Olympic Committees (EOC), is among the dignitaries who are due to attend.

The Forum's main focus is on encouraging women to take on more responsibilities and get involved with sports leadership.

It will be the first edition of the event staged in Europe.

An Advancing Women in Leadership Roles Forum was also held in Kigali in Rwanda in August.

"We are pleased that the IOC supported our initiative," LTOK President Daina Gudzinevičiūtė said.

"It is very important that on the 25th anniversary of Lithuania’s first time participating in the Olympic Games after the restoration of its independence, Thomas Bach, the President of the IOC, will arrive to congratulate us and will also open the event.

"We believe that the programme will be particularly interesting, because we will have diverse participants in the discussions.

"In addition, the issue of gender equality is one of the main points of Agenda 2020."

A series of panel discussions are due to be held as part of the two-day event.

The first will be entitled "It is time for women to run for office", before other sessions on topics such as good governance and education take place.

Before the Forum is held, a special gala dinner will take place, celebrating Lithuania's first participation at the Olympic Games, which came at Barcelona 1992, after the country gained independence from the Soviet Union in 1990.

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.
