The 2019 Pan American Games have just concluded in Lima, Peru, and apart from the weather conditions and the constant traffic, overall, the event was a success for the people of Lima. I’m sure the Pan Am Sports Organisation is happy about the execution. The Peruvian capital did a great job and delivered as expected for the 6,600 athletes from 41 nations present. Jamaica also had record performances in terms of medals, which augurs well for our sport programme’s future.

CYG bid reps stress youth, Trinbago culture and e-sports
The benefits of Trinidad and Tobago hosting the 2021 Commonwealth Youth Games (CYG) can extend beyond the seven days of competition into medium to long-term international collaborations in sport, business and tourism, it has been claimed.
KWANIEZE John and Rheeza Grant are hoping that hosting a grand event such as the 2021 Commonwealth Youth Games (CYG) in TT will give young people the drive to compete in sports and help develop sport in this country.
Congratulations to Brian Lewis, president of the T&T Olympic Committee (TTOC), officials of the T&T Commonwealth Games Association (TTCGA), the Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs and the three (3) member committee — Kwanieze John, Rheeza Grant and Chanelle Young for winning the bid to host the 2021 Commonwealth Youth Games (CYG) from August 1-7.
