STACY Santana will lead the Trinidad and Tobago delegation as chef de mission to the first-ever Caribbean 2022 Games which will be held in Guadeloupe from June 29-July 3.
The official announcement was made following the ratification of the team at the recently concluded TT Olympic Committee (TTOC) executive and council meeting held virtually at Olympic House on June 17. Santana, an administrative officer at the TTOC, will serve for the first time as chef de mission.
She will lead a 62-member team to the games. TT will compete in athletics, 3x3 basketball, cycling, futsal, netball and swimming.
Santana will leave Trinidad on Sunday before the rest of the team to ensure that “everything is in place” for the team's arrival on Tuesday.
“I’m extremely excited and proud to be named chef de mission for the 2022 Caribbean Games,” Santana said.
“I was part of the local organising committee for the 2009 Caribbean Games and to say that I was disappointed when it was cancelled is an understatement. I am truly humbled and grateful to the TTOC for the trust they have placed in me to lead our Under-23 team to this inaugural games and I am confident that our athletes will do us proud.”
