News - Pan American Games

Deloitte, the professional services firm, have been taken on as general consultants to assist with development of a Master Plan for the Lima 2019 Pan American Games.

This emerged in a Pan American Sports Organization (PASO) report on the first official visit to the Peruvian capital by its three-member Coordination Commission (CoCom) on February 9 and 10.

The highly-experienced Commission gave the project a generally positive report, saying: “We are indeed enthused by what we have seen, the commitments we have received and the dedication and the love for sport of the Peruvian people.

“We feel confident that with just over three years left before the opening ceremony, the preparations for the Pan Am Games 2019 are on the right path.”

The Commission, which held meetings with three Government Ministers, including Minister of the Economy and Finance, Alonso Segura, acknowledged that the global economy was impacting Peru.

It emphasised the importance of “adopting the fundamental approach as recommended by Olympic Agenda 2020 in respect of the Pan American Games being a collaborative effort between the proprietors of the Games, PASO, and host, Lima 2019, to realise a successful sporting spectacle for the Americas”.

The Commission urged the Organising Committee (COPAL) to place emphasis on operational aspects and to “begin soonest the process of sourcing and employing the relevant expertise to manage the several functional areas of the Games”, which will feature no fewer than 38 sports.

The Commission visited a number of training and competition venues, as well as the planned site of the Pan American Games Village, seen as a major legacy project.

The Commission is chaired by St Vincent and the Grenadines’ Keith Joseph, a PASO vice-president, who recently entered the forthcoming race to be the organisation’s next President.

Other members were Ivar Sisniega of Mexico, another PASO vice-president, and Jamaica’s Michael Fennell.

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.
