News - Pan American Games

T&T’s beach volleyball team of Elki Phillip and Ayanna Dyette was unsuccessful in their second match at the Pan American Games which is being held in Guadelajara, Mexico. The local duo went down to Cubans Nirian and Onayami Sinal in two sets 12-21, 14-21 in their Pool F match at the Beach Volleyball Stadium in Jalisco. In their opening match they were beaten 5-21, 16-21 by world champion duo Juliana Silva and Larissa Franca of Brazil. In the Taekwondo event, T&T’s Leon Hypolite was pounded by Venezuelan Carlos Vasquez in the Men’s Under 80kg Division. He went down 15-3. In yachting, T&T’s Andrew Lewis finished 11th in laser race one. He sailed in behind eventual winners Saladin Aguayo of the Dominican Republic. In second place was Bruno Da Silva from Brazil and third was Julio Alsogaray of Argentina.

After three days of action in the 16th edition of the event, T&T has won one medal thanks to top local shooter Roger Danie, who took silver in the Men’s 10m Air Pistol final on Sunday. Today, the “First Citizens Sportsman of the Year” for 2010, will be aiming for another medal when he competes in the Men’s 50m Air Pistol event at the Pan American Games Polygon in Jalisco. Another local athlete Robert John Auerbach will see action in the Men’s Trap qualification.

Also, Dexter St Louis and his step-daughter Rheann Chung will represent T&T in their respective table-tennis events. St Louis, who is ranked 15th, will first play Juan Acosta (32) from Peru then Paraguay’s Marcelo Aquirre (7) in the Men’s singles while 21st ranked Chung will have three matches in the Women singles against American Ariel Hsing (3) in her first match, Analdy Lopez (38) of Guatemala and finally Venezuela’s Ruaida Ezzeddine (17). Beach volleyballers Phillip/Dyette will take on Ariana Vilela/Katherine Chila of Ecuador in their final preliminary round match. Andrew Lewis returns today, to compete in the two Laser races in the Sailing event. At the Panam Velodrome, T&T cyclist Njisane Phillip will look to advance out of the qualification round in the Men’s Sprint event.

A few fans stopped me to ask what I thought about the West In­dies' per­for­mance so far in the se­ries against In­dia in both the T20's and the ODIs.

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.
