TT SWIMMERS Zoe Anthony and Jada Chatoor grabbed a silver and bronze medal respectively at the Carifta Swimming Open Water 5km race held on Thursday at Carlisle Bay, Barbados.

Anthony, swimming in the Girls 14-15 category, stopped the clock at one hour, seven minutes and 18 seconds. The TT swimmer who performed exceptional over the past few days split the Cayman Islands dominance as Avery Lambert won the race in 1:07.11 while her teammate Raya Embury-Brown (1:07.24) placed third.

The Girls 16-18 age-group had the closest finish of the 5k race. Curacao`s Samantha Van Vuure was the winner while Elana Sinclair of Cayman Islands came second even though both swimmers clocked the same time of one hour, seven minutes and 10 seconds. The hard-working Chatoor captured the bronze medal with a time of 1:07.16.

TT`s Dominique Nurse-Allen (1:09.09) secured the fifth spot and Gabriella Acosta (1:15.00) rounded off the top 12.

Unfortunately, the boys didn’t medal but performed commendably with Marquise Nelson (1:08.25) placing fifth edging out his countryman Josiah Changar by one second (1:08.26) in the Boys 14-15. In the older category, Malik Nelson (1:05.26) was seventh, Adam Suite (1:11.29) was 11th and Jared De Silva (1:12.43) was 12th.

Earlier in the week, the TT swim team completed their Carifta Swimming Championship campaign with a well-deserved third place podium finish.

TT amassed 676 points inclusive of 43 medals (17 gold, 12 silver and 14 bronze medals). Jamaica placed second with 748 points while Bahamas took the top prize totalling 889.50 points.

This year saw a significant improvement from the twin-island`s 2018`s performance by recording a 100 point increase and climbing a spot higher on the podium after finishing fourth previously. Special recognition was given to the Boys 13-14 relay team (Zarek Wilson, Nikoli Blackman, Johann-Matthew Matamoro, Josiah Changar, Kyle West, Kadon Williams) having finished unbeaten from their four races.

Zoe Anthony (44 points) was the highest point contributor in the females followed by Gabriela Donahue (40), Jada Chatoor (36), Amelia Rajack (34), Anneliese Merry (25), Joy Blackett (23), Vrisnelit Faure (10), Amari Ash and Lyla Browne (nine each).

Nikoli Blackman topped the male`s points table with (41) then Zarek Wilson (39), Giovanni Rivas (22), Luke Gilette (16), Aqeel Joseph (15), Johann- Mtthew Matamoro (14), William Reyes (13) and Kyle West (12).

2019 Pan Amer­i­can Games

The Pan Amer­i­can Games closed on Sun­day but T&T is still cel­e­brat­ing its his­toric per­for­mance, claim­ing 13 medals, the most ever.

I happen to be initially browsing but having caught my attention, I then perused thoroughly, the 2018 Oxford Business Group country report on Trinidad and Tobago.  There were a number of perespectives, snap shots and overviews written. If one wanted to get a well researched and documented overview of the economic and business landscape within the twin Island Republic.

31 July is CANOC day. A message was sent out. That it barely registered or caught the attention of sport stakeholders in the Caribbean is an opportunity not a slight. CANOC must embrace the opportunity to heighten awareness and engage in enhanced outreach to provide information about the organisation.

It is cold in Lima, Peru, host city of the 2019 Pan Am Games. In fact, it is winter here in the South American nation.

With the one-year countdown to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games officially underway, the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee, (TTOC) has announced that TTO athletes will benefit from a pre-games training camp at the Japan Athlete Training Center Osumi, in Osaki Town, Kagoshima Prefecture, as part of Japan’s Host Town Initiative.
