T&T Olympic Committee (TTOC) mission for 10 gold medals by the 2024 Olympics was given a boost recently thanks to a $1 million contribution from Flow.
The telecommunications provider, who has been supporting this mission since 2015, handed over the cheque to TTOC president Brian Lewis during a ceremony at Flow’s Operation Centre in Trincity. Country manager for Flow Trinidad Kurleigh Prescod made the presentation.
“The fact that the TTOC has a goal, it speaks of a willingness or intention to put programmes in place and find the talent. I hope the talent get the attention and support that they need over a period of time to excel,” Prescod said following the presentation.
“We look forward to being part of bringing this very ambitious goal to reality.”
Lewis was grateful for Flow’s support, saying, “We are glad to have an Olympic partner who shares the vision and understands what is required.”
Speaking about predictions for the Tokyo Olympics next year, Lewis said he was hopeful but said the icing on the cake thus far was the news that for the first time in TTOC’s history a member has been appointed chef de mission for the T&T contingent.
Flow is the exclusive TTOC partner in the telecommunications category.
