UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

It is imperative that the TTOC, NSOs, the Minister of Sport , Ministry of Sport and Sport company of Trinidad and Tobago have a shared vision and consensus on the way forward.

Change brings with it uncertain , doubt ,confusion and a loss of confidence.

Knowing what are our shared  priorities , getting them right and following  them will be a critical success factor if local sport is to overcome the perceived crisis it has fond itself in. We can't  act as if all is well. It is not. Its not business as usual.

When times are good there is a margin for error.

With Rio 2016 on the horizon there is no margin for error.

There are issues that must be addressed .

We can't allow red tape and bureaucracy to become an insurmountable obstacle.

We have a duty and responsibility to approach the current situation with a sense of urgency. We don't have the luxury of time.

The journey to achieve Olympic and World level sporting success is a long and difficult one  we are almost  to Rio 2016 . We can't afford to slip up.

We run the risk of 8 to 12 years of planning  going down the drain.

The planning for 2020 and beyond is already in train.

There will always be setbacks and detours but how we react will determine if we remain on course for success or not.
