Team TTO in Rio 2016

The ANOC Executive Council today expressed its complete support of IOC President Thomas Bach and the Rio 2016 Organising Committee as it looks forward with optimism to the months ahead which will see NOCs make their final preparations for the Games.

The ANOC Executive Council met at the ANOC headquarters and as well as discussing Rio 2016 received progress reports from the ANOC Commissions and Working Groups as it looks to continue to develop reforms and initiatives for the benefit of the NOCs and the Olympic Movement. Among the presentations given was an update from the ANOC Legal Commission and ANOC Modernisation and Follow Up Commission on their joint initiative to produce an ANOC Code of Ethics and ANOC Compliance Policy as part of ANOC’s commitment to good governance and transparency. The two Commissions are refining the documents which will be presented to the ANOC General Assembly in Doha for approval later this year.

The International Relations Commission also announced to the Council that UNESCO has established an official partnership (consultative status) with ANOC to build on the solid foundation of work between the two organisations. ANOC and UNESCO share many common interests and the partnership will further enhance the impact of their joint activities. As part of the partnership ANOC will look to work with UNESCO to bring governments and NOCs closer together while ensuring that the autonomy of sport is properly respected.
ANOC Senior Vice President Patrick Hickey – who is also the IOC Delegate Member for Autonomy – was unanimously approved by the Council as the ANOC representative on the IOC Executive Board.

Speaking after the meeting, ANOC President Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah said:

“Today was a highly productive meeting. With just four months to go until Rio 2016, our NOCs are working hard to prepare their athletes for the Games. We fully support the IOC President and the Rio 2016 Organising Committee and have no doubt that they will deliver a fantastic event where NOCs, athletes and fans will enjoy world-class competitions and a carnival atmosphere."

“At ANOC we will continue to work hard over the coming months to develop proposals and initiatives which will improve the support we provide our NOCs. As we heard today, the ANOC Commissions and Working Groups have been doing excellent work to try and identify projects which will bring real benefits to NOCs. During this difficult time for the international sports movement, it is vital that we continue to work together to promote good governance, ethics and the autonomy of sport in order to ensure a more transparent and sustainable future.”

The ANOC Executive Council today also received presentations on the ANOC World Beach Games in San Diego from the ANOC Events Working Group and an update on the preparations for the ANOC General Assembly in Doha. The Council approved the ANOC General Assembly logo which has been designed by the Qatar Olympic Committee and will be used for the event on 15-16 November 2016.

Rheeza Grant Interview - August 2019 - 2019 Pan Am Games, Lima, Peru

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.
