READY, SET, GO....and this group of runners face the starter's gun at the Scotiabank's Women Against Breast Cancer 5K at Skinner Park, San Fernando yesterday.


Over 7,000 women came out in their numbers to support the Scotiabank Foundation's 2017 Women Against Cancer 5K initiative, which took place yesterday, simultaneously from 4 pm, at three locations – Queen’s Park Savannah, Port-of-Spain; Skinner's Park, San Fernando and Lowlands Mall, Tobago.

The first runner to cross the line at the Queen’s Park Savannah was none other than the defending champion, Samantha Shukla, as she finished the race in a time of 19 minutes and 38 seconds (10 seconds slower than last year's winning time). She was followed by Sjaelon Evans in second with a time of 20 minutes 51 seconds and third place was captured by Gina Hart in 21 minutes and 48 seconds.

Speaking to Newsday after the victory, Shukla stated, "I do not know what it is, but this year's event was better than last year's. Personally, the race was tough for me in the sense that I have been sick since Monday, my body is still recuperating and I am not fully 100 percent fit." Shukla detailed her remedy to prepare for yesterday's race was sleeping, staying hydrated and being mentally prepared during the week.

She continued, "This is the biggest race in the country for women and it feels good to win, knowing that I was able to overcome the challenge of being sick."

Runners started assembling from 3 pm with warm-up activities commencing from 3.30 pm. The 'Largest Team' participating in this year's event was Massy Distribution while St Augustine Girls High School (SAGHS) recaptured the 'Largest School' trophy for another year running. One Upper Six Form member of the SAGHS team stated, "This is one of the best cancer awareness programmes in the country as many women come out to support this initiative and look forward to it every year, just as our school do."

The Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard also had a team in participation and they expressed, "The event was well managed again this year and it is important to keep spreading the important message of cancer awareness and how to take care of oneself to prevent it."

The Scotiabank Foundation gave a $250,000 donation to the Trinidad and Tobago's Cancer Society at the event. Sponsors included Magna Rewards, GNC, Bermudez, SM Jaleel, John Dickenson, Fat Boy Coconut Water, Oscar Francois and Fisher.

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.

I happen to be initially browsing but having caught my attention, I then perused thoroughly, the 2018 Oxford Business Group country report on Trinidad and Tobago.  There were a number of perespectives, snap shots and overviews written. If one wanted to get a well researched and documented overview of the economic and business landscape within the twin Island Republic.

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.

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.
