Team TTO in Rio 2016

A global promotional campaign entitled “Together we can change the world” has been launched by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in an effort to communicate their vision of building a better world through sport.

The first phase of the campaign consists of four films, labelled "Together","Breath", "Respect" and "Counting Stars".

Each of the films aim to explore the Olympic values and show their role in enhancing a united world through sport.

The films are set to be aired by the Olympic broadcast partners around the world in the build-up to Rio 2016, due to begin on August 5.

The launch of the campaign coincided with the Olympic flame lighting ceremony for Games in Ancient Olympia, with IOC President Thomas Bach and Rio 2016 chief Carlos Nuzman among those in attendance.

“Like no other human activity, sport is about bringing people together in the spirit of friendship and respect,” said Bach.

“Sport always builds bridges, it never erects walls.

“In a world shaken by crises, the message that our shared humanity is greater than the forces that divide us, is more relevant than ever before.

“By coming together in unity to celebrate the rich diversity of our shared humanity, the Olympic Games give us all hope that a better world is possible.

“Together, we can change the world.”

The soundtrack for the films was produced by American musician Questlove, who re-recorded the song The Fire, which he had recorded originally with The Roots.

He recorded the new version with top recording artists from across the world, including Lenny Kravitz, Nneka, Yuna, Diogo Nogueira and Corinne Bailey Rae.

Voiceovers, recorded in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese, featured cultural icons including Uma Thurman, Juliette Binoche, Paz Vega and Tais Araujo.

Social media activation is also planned to start on Olympic Day, due to take place on June 23, to support Olympic Peace, with a campaign hub available at www.olympic.org/peace.

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.
