Celebration in recognition of the 40th anniversary of Hasely Crawford’s gold medal performance at the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games in Canada was marked on Sunday on the second day of the opening event at the National Cycling Velodrome in Couva.

Crawford was invited by the Minister of Sport and Youth Affairs Darryl Smith, where he was presented with a commemorative gold medal by the Minister.

The brief ceremony as well as Crawford’s response were duly acknowledged with a standing ovation from the sizeable crowd in attendance, which included national gymnast Thema Williams.

An avid cycling fan himself, 66-year-old Crawford enjoyed the international racing at the event in the presence of local cycling greats Roger Gibbon and Gene Samuel.
