News - Pan American Games

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – In collaboration with the Pan American Sports Organization, the United States Olympic Committee will host the first-ever PASO Continental Athlete Forum in Miami from May 23-25.

The U.S. will welcome 52 athletes from 39 of the 41 PASO countries for the three-day meeting, with a goal of providing attendees with the tools needed to enable them to better serve on the board of their National Olympic Committees or athlete commissions within their countries.

“We look forward to welcoming attendees from around the Pan American region to Miami for a collaborative and educational workshop,” USOC CEO Scott Blackmun said. “Through this event, we hope to give athletes the tools to make an even greater impact on the Olympic Movement, both in the Americas and around the world.”

The forum will combine several elements to help equip representatives to better serve their country’s athletes. The workshop will include discussing current topics that directly affect athletes in the Pan American region, sharing tools to improve athlete development, and creating communication networks between the International Olympic Committee, Association of National Olympic Committees and NOCs.

Speakers will include PASO President Dr. Julio Maglione, PASO Athletes’ Commission Chair Alexandra Orlando, IOC Athletes’ Commission Chair Claudia Bokel, ANOC Athletes’ Commission Chair Barbara Kendall and U.S. IOC member Angela Ruggiero.

“We are looking forward to welcoming our athlete representatives from PASO to what will be a resourceful forum centered on empowering our athletes,” Dr. Maglione said. “We’re grateful to the USOC for hosting this important event for PASO.”

Ruggiero, a four-time Olympian, will speak on leadership, and will also serve as a panelist on current global and regional athlete issues. Ruggiero is a four-time Olympic medalist and was elected to the IOC Athletes’ Commission in 2010. This month she was named chief strategy officer of Los Angeles 2024.

The forum will also include a panel discussion on health safety and security of athletes, a presentation on building effective athlete commissions and a breakout session on athlete career programs.

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.
