Major announcements will be made in the coming weeks as the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) 10 or more Olympic Gold medals by the year 2024 #10golds24 project enters a new phase.
Launched in December last year . Fund raising for 10golds24 kicked off with the participation of the TTOC president Brian Lewis in the Trinidad and Tobago International Marathon On January 25th.
Interest in partnering with the TTOC 10 gold project is high and has resulted in discussions with a diverse group of private and public sector companies.
As part of the 10golds24 athlete welfare and preparation programme a request has been made to Government to establish an expedited elite athlete housing assistance programme.
In pursuit of its athlete welfare priority the TTOC is working with Guardian Group to design and develop a sport focused group medical insurance plan.
Also in progress is the creation of a medical services network which will provide athletes with discounted and expedited sport medicine and sport science services and support.
Eight athletes have received Olympic Solidarity scholarship funding through the TTOC to assist with preparation for qualification for next year's Rio 2016 Olympics.
