UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

On Monday, May 29, 2017, the Trinidad and Tobago Commonwealth Games Association (TTCGA) will take to the streets of Port of Spain to showcase the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Baton.

 

Roger Gibbon, two-time Gold medallist at the 1966 Commonwealth Games will feature at the Queen’s Baton Relay (QBR) on Monday.

Gibbon, along with past and present National athletes will ride, jog and walk the route through Port of Spain.

Also participating in this historic event is 1988 Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Wendell Williams.

The relay festivities will start at 9:00 am at the Queen’s Park Savannah, opposite BPTT, on Monday.

Members of the public can join the QBR as it makes its way along the route.

On March 13, 2017, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II set the Gold Coast 2018 Queen’s Baton Relay (QBR) in motion during a star-studded commencement ceremony at Buckingham Palace as part of Commonwealth Day celebrations.

The Queen’s Baton will travel through the entire Commonwealth for 388 days, covering 230,000 kilometres to its final destination, the Opening Ceremony of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) on April 4, 2018.

In 1966, Roger Gibbon won Trinidad and Tobago's first ever gold medal at the then called British Empire & Commonwealth Games for cycling.

Gibbon captured gold in the 1km Time Trial in Kingston, Jamaica with a time of 1:09.4 ahead of Phillip Bristow-Stagg and Richard Hine of Australia.

Gibbon would go on to create further history when he also captured Gold in the Sprint ahead of Jim Booker (ENG) and Daryl Perkins (AUS) in second and third respectively at the same games.

Gibbon was 22 years old at the time.

Roger Gibbon is one of the most successful Trinidad and Tobago athletes at the Pan American Games, collecting a total number of four individual medals (three golds, one silver).

Gibbon also competed in two consecutive Summer Olympics for Trinidad and Tobago, starting in 1964.

He received the Humming Bird Medal Silver in 1969 for his achievement in the sport of cycling.
