FORMER TRINIDAD and Tobago Olympic Committee assistant secretary general Wendell Labastide died yesterday.
FORMER president of the TT Olympic Committee (TTOC) Brian Lewis said creating a level playing field by being a voice for equality was one of the important achievements during his nine-year tenure.
EXPERIENCED SPORTS ADMINISTRATOR Diane Henderson became the first female and, the eleventh President of the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) at the historic first virtual election held today April 30th 2022.
It was April 7, the second day of their Tobago vacation, and, apart from a man grilling food, a woman selling chow and two policemen having lunch, Ricardo Laban and his entourage of 11 (his three sisters, his brother-in-law, their children, and a friend) were the only people at No Man’s Land, enjoying the peaceful spot.
They nearly did not make it to their destination; the boat hired to get them there had never turned up.
It takes something special to stand out in the Olympic games, where more than 11,650 of the world’s best athletes have converged to compete.
WHEN Keeran Sriskandarajah saw the TT men’s 4x400-metre team bring home gold at the 2017 World Championships in London, he was inspired.
