UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) president Brian Lewis is promising a  Good Sport Governance code will soon become reality for this country.

The TTOC,  the body holding exclusive  authority for the Olympic Games and sports recognized by the International Olympic Committee(IOC),  is also responsible for the Commonwealth Games and sports recognized by the Commonwealth Games Federation( CGF) under the Trinidad and Tobago Commonwealth Games Association(TTCGA). And in the TTOC's ongoing efforts  to  raise governance standards in the national sport  organisations across the country, the TTOC is in discussions with international and local good governance experts  as part of the national Olympic committee's commitment to establish a Good Sport Governance code and guidelines .

"Good governance of national sports organizations and national governing bodies is essential to ensuring the development of sport is in accordance with the ethics and values of sport," Lewis said, "Given the role of sport within society to inspire and influence, the transparency, democracy and integrity of national sport organizations and  governing bodies, clubs and sport based organizations needs to be assured."

Lewis also explained that national sporting bodies needed to govern their affairs in an "efficient, accountable, transparent and democratic manner".

Transparency International (TI) defines corruption as the abuse of entrusted power for private gain.

It is a situation Lewis and his TTOC executive want to rid the NSOs of.

"Be it by choice, inability or inadvertence poor governance leads to corruption and the misuse of resources with the consequent negative impact on the athletes in particular, " Lewis said.

Lewis who has been involved in sport administration for three decades said  there is no one size fits all panacea and good corporate and organizational governance norms can't be adopted blindly in sport. "Its a complex situation that requires consideration of the specificity of sport. Hence the intention of the TTOC/TTCGA to work with a cross section of experts to ensure that the TTOC proposed Good Sport Governance code is credible and realistic," Lewis indicated.

Lewis concluded by saying the implementation and compliance action plan must be responsive to the need for cooperation across the Trinidad and Tobago sport sector.
