Talks have begun to plot a way forward for the Commonwealth Youth Games which is scheduled to be held in T&T, next year.
The hosting of the Commonwealth Youth Games (CYG) 2021, originally scheduled for August 1-7 next year, could be postponed. But a final determination won’t come until September/October of this year.
"There is life after COVID19 and the COVID19 pandemic and I see the CYGTT2021 as playing a very important part in being a catalyst for the post-COVID19 pandemic life and era."
With COVID-19 putting a stranglehold on sporting events worldwide for this year, T&T Olympic Committee (TTOC) president Brian Lewis is staying positive with the prospect of this country being able to host the Commonwealth Youth Games (CYG) next year.
The 2019 Pan American Games have just concluded in Lima, Peru, and apart from the weather conditions and the constant traffic, overall, the event was a success for the people of Lima. I’m sure the Pan Am Sports Organisation is happy about the execution. The Peruvian capital did a great job and delivered as expected for the 6,600 athletes from 41 nations present. Jamaica also had record performances in terms of medals, which augurs well for our sport programme’s future.
