UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

THE INAUGURAL BPTT, Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) and Michael Johnson Performance (MJP) High Performance Summit got off to a successful start at the Michael Johnson World Training Centre in McKinney, Texas on Monday.

The Team TTO Road to Rio Summit focus is on preparing podium ready athletes as they prepare for next year’s Summer Olympic Games.

Nine elite track and field athletes are at the summit to undergo a series of evaluation and assessment tests as well as media and mental conditioning training.

The athletes attending the summit are Richard Thompson, Kelly-Ann Baptiste, Michelle-Lee Ahye, Semoy Hackett, Machel Cedenio, Mikel Thomas, Emmanuel Callender, Jarrin Solomon and Wayne Davis.

Four-time Trinidad and Tobago Olympic medallist Ato Boldon and fellow coach, Eric Francis are also in the TT contingent.

Francis, coach of Michelle-Lee Ahye, was appreciative of the work being done. “This is a really good idea,” he said. “Definitely a step in the right direction in track and field and sports in Trinidad and Tobago. I congratulate the TTOC on a great initiative.” Lance Walker, Executive Vice-President and Global Performance Director added, “It’s all about the athletes and providing them and their coaches with complementary support. These are world-class athletes and coaches doing some great things. Our role is to add value where and when required.” The Summit 2015 forms part of the overall #10Gold24 athlete preparation programme.
