UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

The Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) has told National Sport Organizations (NSOs) that the TTOC's fitness standards, criteria and process will not be compromised.

The TTOC communicated its policy and process to all NSOs since last year and way in advance of 2014 Commonwealth and Central American and Caribbean Games (CAC).

Transparency is an important aspect of the TTOC's selection process.

On Saturday 11th October at 9am the TTOC will stage the final Beep Test at the Jean Pierre Indoor facility in Port of Spain.

The TTOC communicated in writing and at meetings since last year the required beep test standards and the dates for the Beep Test.

The TTOC , the Sport Company of Trinidad and Tobago Elite Development Unit and Michael Johnson Performance Centre has worked together since May this year to ensure that in particular Team Sports and locally based athletes desirous of qualifying and participating at the Commonwealth Games, Youth Olympic Games and Central American and Caribbean( CAC) Games had the sport science based support, advice and programmes to address any shortcomings or deficiencies.

Annette Knott, TTOC secretary general and Chef de Mission for the upcoming CAC Games said the TTOC will not tolerate or accept any attempt by NSOs  to compromise or subvert the fitness and selection policy or process .

"None of the NSOs can say that they don't know what is the policy or standard. Once an event is under the TTOC we stand by our selection process."

The TTOC has to submit the Trinidad and Tobago delegation list to CAC Games officials by Tuesday 14th October  Saturday's test is the final opportunity for athletes and Team Sports to meet the fitness standard.

The TTOC General Council will convene on Friday 10th October at Olympic House to receive and  consider  the recommendations of the Executive Committee in respect of the proposed CAC Games delegation.
