The recently signed agreement with the Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees (CANOC) will give Caribbean viewers unprecedented coverage of the region’s athletes participating in this year's Commonwealth Games. Over 1.5 million global viewers are expected to tune in to view the games.

Flow customers can now catch live and exclusive coverage of the events on Flow Sports 1Flow Sports 2 and up to three additional “Flow Sports Extra” channels.

HRH Prince Charles will open the Commonwealth Games on April 4 in Queensland, Australia, and Flow will deliver over 250 hours of live coverage for two full weeks of this world class event which culminates on April 14. Flow’s coverage of the Commonwealth Games comes closely on the heels of the Caribbean’s premier junior athletics meet, the Flow CARIFTA Games held March 30 - April 2 in Nassau, Bahamas.

“We are proud to broadcast these significant games and to provide a platform for young athletes to showcase their talents to the world. Our partnership with CANOC gives us another opportunity to highlight our regional excellence in sports.  It also provides valuable exposure for our young athletes not only to sports fans across the Caribbean but also potential scouts for universities and athletic clubs. This brings them one step closer to realizing their dreams of becoming world class athletes and Olympians,” said Flow’s Caribbean President, Garry Sinclair.

Sinclair also commented on Flow’s ongoing investment in Caribbean sports, “Flow is part of the daily lives of our Caribbean communities. We will continue to invest in the platforms, content and sporting events that enable our young boys and girls to see themselves and dream of what they can achieve if they commit to the dedication and hard work that can earn them a spot in the Commonwealth Games and other world class sporting events.”

The GC2018 is the largest sporting event to be held in Australia this decade with 15,000 volunteers and over 6,600 athletes and officials expected to converge on Queensland from over 70 nations and territories. Included in this mix are 14 Caribbean countries who will be represented at the games and compete in 18 sporting events and 7 para sports that include Track and Field, Boxing, Aquatics, Netball, Beach Volleyball, Rugby Sevens, Squash. For a quick preview of the GC2018 games click here to watch this video.

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.
