UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

Tonight, Trinidad and Tobago will find out who are the First Citizens Sports Foundation (FCSF) Sports Awards 2014 picks for Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year.

 

The gala event will kick off from 7.15 tonight at Queen’s Hall, Port of Spain.

 

It seems that again, this year, track and field is set to dominate—or more accurately, the field—with javelin thrower Keshorn Walcott and shot putter Cleopatra Borel leading the charge among the men and women respectively.

 

It’s not a done deal yet, but the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) awards often provides a good indicator as to what’s in store on a national stage, even though there are a number of sports outside the TTOC jurisdiction that have put their hands up with performances over the preceding 12 months.

 

There have been some exciting performances in that period, but it will be tough to get past Walcott, who bettered his national javelin record by hurling the spear 85.77 metres in August at his final IAAF Diamond League meet in Zurich, Switzerland for silver.

 

Walcott seemed to have gotten past his injury concerns in the year with some consistent performances. The Toco native won silver at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland, and bagged bronze at the IAAF Continental Cup.

 

Borel is T&T’s most accomplished veteran in the field, and has continued to consistently throw beyond 18 metres in big competitions. She secured silver at the Commonwealth Games, and gold at the Central American and Caribbean Games (CAC) in Veracruz, Mexico in November when the iron ball landed on the cusp of 19 metres.

 

But there are a number of other standout performances that would surely have tested the judges.

 

Michael Alexander boxed his way to bronze at the Commonwealth Games despite facing a number of preparation hurdles. He also claimed CAC bronze.

 

Denesh Ramdin was one of West Indies’ top batsmen even in the face of being handed the Test captaincy, and helped the regional side to the semi-finals of the World T20 competition. Ramdin also played a crucial role in helping T&T lift the Nagico Super50 title.

 

Among the women, footballer Arin King and golfer Monifa Sealy both earned their nomination with strong seasons. King was strong in defence to bring T&T to the cusp of their first World Cup qualification, and Sealy was again a stroke above the rest to help T&T hold on to the George Teale Memorial Trophy.
