UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

A late equaliser from Kennya "Yaya" Cordner kept the hopes of the Women Warriors alive in Group A of the 2015 Pan American Games women's football competition. The senior women's team squared up against Colombia in their second match of the campaign where they had to come from behind again to salvage a draw at the death at the Hamilton Pan Am Soccer Stadium in Toronto, Canada.

Colombia took an early lead when Ingrid Vidal converted a low cross from the right side three minutes in, and then proceeded to dominate the rest of the match until an errant back pass in the 87th minute gave Cordner the ideal opportunity to save the campaign for the T&T women's team.

The result leaves the Women Warriors in a must-win encounter with the Mexicans on Saturday (5.35pm T&T time) in order to qualify for the semi-finals. The Mexicans, ranked 26th in the world, could prove to be their toughest test yet. But the game also presents a chance at revenge for Ross Russell's charges as they lost 4-2 after extra time to the Central Americans lost out on the third automatic World Cup berth at the 2014 CONCACAF Women's Championships.

Tomorrow, the men's Under-23 football team will face Paraguay at the same stadium in their second match in Group B. Despite going into the game without their skipper Alvin Jones, who was sent off against Uruguay on Monday, the young "Soca Warriors" hope to emulate the senior team who are currently doing well at the CONCACAF Gold Cup. The T&T U-23s lost 4-0 to Uruguay on Monday evening.

Over on the beach, the volleyball pair of Fabien Whitfield and Daneil Williams couldn't get the better of the cousins from Chile, Esteban and Marco Grimalt. T&T lost in straight sets 21-11, 22-20. It was their second consecutive defeat in the preliminary round Pool D at the Chevrolet Beach Volleyball Centre. Their female counterparts were also unable to register a win, as they lost in two straight sets against Mexico 25-23, 21-7 yesterday afternoon.

At Royal Canadian Yacht Club yesterday, the men and women's laser competition was still in progress at press time, and Andrew Lewis and Kelly Arrindell were both holding their own. Lewis was in tenth position in trace five of the Men's Laser class, while Arrindell moved up to second in her fifth race in the Women's Laser Radial class.

Today, endurance cyclist Varun Maharajh will be on the track at the Cisco Milton Pan Am Velodrome for the first event of the men's omnium. He will ride today in the scratch race at 11.56am (TT time). Later on he will contest the men's individual pursuit at 12.42pm, and the elimination at 6.56pm.

The men's team sprint team will be in action as well. Despite the withdrawal of Quincy Alexander through injury, Njisane Phillip who takes his place, will attempt to qualify for the final with Justin Roberts and Jude Codrington. The qualification race starts at 12.29pm, while the final, should they make it, will be 6pm this evening.

Today the T&T men’s hockey team have some ground to make up after their 11-0 thrashing from the Argentines on Tuesday. They face Cuba at 9am at the Pan Fields at the University of St George.
