Trinidad and Tobago medals at World Jump Rope Championships in Orlando, Florida, USA.

 

Trinidad and Tobago created history when it became the first and only Caricom member state to win medals in the new and burgeoning sport of jump rope or skipping.

Trinidad and Tobago participated in the recently held 2014 World Jump Rope Championship, which was held from 30th June -10th July, at the University Of Central Florida, Florida, USA. The Trinidad and Tobago team came away from the competition with three well deserved medals; winning two (2) silver medals and one (1) bronze medal.

The fleet footed exponents doing Trinidad and Tobago proud were Jair Cadogan, a form one (1) student of Fatima College and Akkasia Charles a form (3) student of the Woodbrook Secondary School. Jair won a silver medal in the age category 13-14 Boys Freestyle; while Akkasia Charles captured two medals, silver and bronze respectively, in the Girls 13-14 Freestyle and 30 seconds Speed event. Jair also had a fourth (4th) place finish in his category in the speed event.  Other members of the contingent though not medaling also achieved top ten (10) finishes in their respective age categories/events.

Trinidad and Tobago participated in its first championship in 2008, in Cape Town South Africa and subsequent championships, 2010 Loughborough, England, Tampa Florida 2012 and Orland Florida, 2013. While still a fledgling nation, in the sport, which boast of powerhouses like America, Canada, France, China, Hong Kong and Belgium, Trinidad and Tobago can boast of presently being the first nation in the jump rope world to have jump rope recognized as an official sport, and to receive support from its government towards it development.

The National Governing Body for the sport is the Trinidad and Tobago Jump Rope Federation. It’s President, Clint Charles, states that the  fundamental goal of the organization is not to create podium athletes, but to develop a Physically Active Lifestyle Model that create physically literate human beings with a positive association for physical activity which will redound to the health and happiness of Trinidad and Tobago, and by extension the world

The next world championship will be July, 2015, Paris, France and members are already optimistic of not just more medals but Gold medals for Trinidad and Tobago.
