Top ju­nior na­tion­al sprint­er Shani­qua Bas­combe and Jaden St Louis are Cougars Track and Field Club Se­nior "Sports­woman and Sports­man of the Year".

Jani­ka "Hulk" Jor­dan and Jor­dan Noel were ad­judged as the "Ju­nior Sports­man and Sports­woman of the Year" at Thurs­day's Christ­mas din­ner and awards cer­e­mo­ny held at the VIP Room at the Hase­ly Craw­ford Sta­di­um, Mu­cu­rapo.

Bas­combe, 15, is the reign­ing Na­tion­al As­so­ci­a­tion of Ath­let­ics Ad­min­is­tra­tions (NAAA) na­tion­al 100 and 200 me­tres Un­der-17 cham­pi­on. Bas­combe was al­so sec­ond at the Carif­ta Games in the 200m be­hind Bre­an­na Williams of Ja­maica. This was the third award won by Bas­combe in the past three years.

Al­so shar­ing the night's spot­light were mul­ti-event ath­lete 12-year-old "Hulk" Jor­dan and sprint­er Jor­dan Noel (13) as the club in­tro­duced two new awards, the Ju­nior "Women's Ath­lete of the Year" and Ju­nior "Men's Ath­lete of the Year".

Fea­ture speak­er Olympian na­tion­al Shot Put cham­pi­on Cleopa­tra Borel wowed the young ath­letes when she told them the sto­ry about "The Hare and the Tur­tle” as it per­tains to Cougars.

Borel, who ad­dressed the Club in 2014, said “Four years ago, right here I asked you the Cougars ath­letes to be like the wise old mule and ‘Shake It Off and Step Up'. It is clear for all to see that Cougars have stepped up and shak­en it off as you are the best club in T&T. She asked the Cougars fam­i­ly to ex­pand their ex­cel­lence in 2019 and be­yond".

Pres­i­dent of the T&T Olympic Com­mit­tee (TTOC) Bri­an Lewis was his usu­al elo­quent self in his short mes­sage. He dis­cussed us­ing ad­ver­si­ty and seem­ing­ly hope­less sit­u­a­tions to el­e­vate one­self to­wards vic­to­ry.

He warned, “Don’t bend to peer pres­sure. Many peo­ple whom you be­lieve are your friend may not nec­es­sar­i­ly be seek­ing your best in­ter­est. In fact many of your friends, and re­mem­ber this, are not seek­ing your best in­ter­est.

"Mis­ery loves com­pa­ny and you bet­ter un­der­stand that many around you want you to fail, I beg you not to give up your ca­reers by fol­low­ing bad ex­am­ples and friend who are not do­ing the right things."

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.
