SOME 40 coaches and sport officials yesterday identified the need to employ professional organisations like the Michael Johnson Performance (MJP) across a wider section of the T&T sport landscape. This is in order to assist the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (T&TOC) and T&T athletes and coaches to strive for the TTOC’s goal of 10 golds by 2024.

On a warm evening in a Barcelona suburb 24 years ago, the air thick and heavy, the light-grey and gold, Cuba and the USA met in a baseball game that was as much a contest of ideologies as an Olympic semi-final. As the two teams lined up to shake hands before the semi-final, each Cuban presented his opponent with a commemorative pennant. The Americans had come empty-handed.

Olympic legend Michael Johnson is scheduled to arrive in T&T today. The multiple Olympic and World Champion will conduct high performance workshops between December 13-14. The visit is part of the Bptt/Michael Johnson Performance (MJP) and T&T Olympic Committee (TTOC) High Performance partnership.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) in cooperation with Adecco and the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) will host for the first time a Trinidad and Tobago Athlete Career Programme (ACP) Workshop for athletes on Saturday 3rd December, 2016 at Olympic House -121 Abrecromby Street, Port. Of. Spain, from 9:00am - 4:30pm. The workshop will be led by Olympians and IOC ACP Outreach Facilitators Cydonie Mothersille and Katura Horton-Perinchief.

Former President Fidel Castro, who led a rebel army to improbable victory in Cuba, embraced Soviet-style communism and defied the power of 10 US presidents during his half century rule, has died at age 90.
