UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

Trinidad and Tobago hope their focus on youngsters will boost their chances of staging the 2021 Commonwealth Youth Games.

Officials from the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) have been conducting an inspection visit this week.

The CGF team is being led by Rachel Simon, the CGF's head of the Commonwealth Youth Games, with chief operating officer Darren Hall.

They are accompanied by Don Parker, the sport director of Commonwealth Games England, and Keith Joseph, secretary general of the St Vincent and the Grenadines Commonwealth Games Association, who are representing the two bidding regions of Europe and the Caribbean.

Having already visited Gibraltar, the inspection of Trinidad and Tobago will bring the evaluation process to a close.

Trinidad and Tobago’s bid team expressed their hope the CGF delegation have been impressed by their proposal.

The bid team is led by Rugby North America programme manager Kwanieze John, Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee project officer of athletes services and programmes Rheeza Grant and Chanelle Young, marketing and communications officer at the TTOC.

"All three of us are under 30 and we wanted that to resonate with the youth of the Commonwealth," John told the Trinidad Express.

"We wanted the Games to represent a different perception of youth in Trinidad and Tobago.

"We have our societal challenges and we wanted to have the bid as a beacon of hope that young people can strive and be adventurous, and take ownership of anything we set our minds to."

One man I know who puts his neck on the line for the youth is @briaclew. He entrusted us with a historic milestone for Trinidad and Tobago Sport as we prepared, presented and defended the #cyg2021 bid. What an experience! #ourdream #youthgamesbyyouth #commonwealth #teamtto

Beach volleyball, aquatics and cycling are expected to feature at the Games should they be awarded to Trinidad and Tobago.

Esports and BMX Freestyle could also feature.

The CGF team are expected to produce reports on the two candidates that will be presented to the governing body's Executive Board at its next meeting in June.

Gibraltar and Trinidad and Tobago are bidding to replace Belfast as the host of the event.

The Games was stripped from Northern Ireland by the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) last June.

Belfast was stripped of the event by the CGF because the political deadlock in the country meant the required financing could not be guaranteed.
