National sporting icon Marjorie John died on Saturday morning at the age of 89.
John of netball, tennis and basketball fame, having represented T&T at all sports, but not limited to those as she played cricket, table tennis, hockey, competed in rifle shooting and cycling.
So multi-talented was the retired Police Sergeant and beloved national athlete, who was referred to as an allrounder.
Former T&T Olympic Committee (TTOC) president Brian Lewis paid homage to the patriot, yesterday.
“They don’t make them like Marjorie any more!” said Lewis. “She played all those sports and excelled in all. She was very passionate about sport and country. She will be missed. May she rest in peace.”
