- TEAM TTO THRIVE - 

SWIMMING

PRIME MINISTER Dr Keith Rowley has congratulated the Trinidad and Tobago athletes for their excellent achievement at the 2017 Central American and Caribbean Amateur Swimming Confederation (CCCAN) Championships, which concluded at the National Aquatic Centre in Couva, on Sunday.

Team TT pulled off an upset at the Championships, finishing first overall over four disciplines. The historic achievement for TT as the only English-speaking country to top the points table of 26 countries over the event’s 70- year history is simply astounding.

In a media release issued yesterday, Rowley saluted the young athletes. “You have made the entire country proud of your accomplishments.

Success does not come easy but your hard word, passionate commitment, grit and determination has paid off. Team TTO is today an inspiration for all who aspire to greatness in our nation.” Minister of Sport and Youth Affairs Darryl Smith was happy that the country was able to host a successful Championships. “We were confident that the Aquatic Centre would adequately meet the demands of such a large tournament, which was ably managed by ASATT (Amateur Swimming Association of TT),” Smith said.

“Equally, as the first time hosts of all five disciplines of the Championships, we never doubted that Team TTO’s home crowd advantage would be a factor in the athlete’s performances. We congratulate all the athletes and their coaches for the commitment and dedication shown over the past few months. The entire aquatics community should be proud of the record- breaking accomplishments at CCCAN 2017, both in and out of the pool.” TT did not only emerge champions overall, but earned a record haul of 73 medals, the most in the country’s history of participation at CCCAN. Among the additional firsts recorded by TT during CCCAN 2017 were a competitive diver Alyssa Ramlakhan winning gold in the springboard events, as well as registering more than half a dozen meet records.

“These feats bode well for the present and future of aquatics in TT, as we look ahead to cheering on one of the CCCAN stars Dylan Carter at the World Championships to be held from July 14 to 30 in Budapest, Hungary,” the media release ended.

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.
