NATIONAL rugby team players Nigel Ballington and Nicolette Pantor picked up the MVP (Most Valuable Player) awards after they led their teams (Harvard and Police) to their respective men and women’s titles at the annual Police Rugby Sevens Tournament yesterday, at the Police Training Academy, St James Barracks.

Ballington also won an award for scoring most tries en route to Harvard’s 22-12 victory over a testy Exiles in the men’s final. He scored twice in the final, while Skakeel Dyte and Brian Daniel got the other tries for Harvard.

Leon Pantor, brother of Nicolette, and Wazim Stewart scored for Exiles. Neither Harvard nor Exiles lost a match before the final.

Harvard’s win, however, disrupted Exiles’ run in the series given the latter’s two victories at the UWI and YTC Sevens tournaments, which were held over the previous two weekends.

The women’s final was somewhat of a predictable affair as Police extended their unbeaten run throughout, which now spans the entire season. Police earned a 12-5 victory over Royalians.

Pantor was a class of her own as she led once again in the final, scoring two tries, one of which was converted by Jamilla Derrick.

Pantor’s double took her tournament tally to five tries, enough to once again see her pick up both MVP and top try-scorer awards.

The Police women’s victory was fitting for the occasion as the club’s rugby team celebrated its 40th anniversary, while this year marks the 36th year since the tournament was first held.

The Police women triumph came five days after their capture of the Inter-Service Cup, an annual fixture between Defence Force and Police’s men’s rugby teams, which for the first time this year featured an opening women’s cup match. Defence Force won the men’s cup match.

The Police Rugby Sevens Tournament ran over two days with an Under-19 boys and girls tournament taking place on Saturday.

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.
