UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

Four-time Olympic champion Michael Johnson has encouraged athletes to take personal responsibility for th eir performances and to draw-up strategic plans for their careers during a presentation at a Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) workshop.

Johnson, whose 400 metres world record of 43.18sec stood for 17 years before being broken by South Africa's Wayde van Niekerk during Rio 2016, was a guest speaker at a high performance seminar in Port of Spain.

The main objective was to "engage athletes and coaches in a discussion about formulating strategy to improve the local high performance sport environment".

The TTOC has set an ambitious target to win 10 gold medals at the 2024 Olympic Games.

Athletes were able to "express their views, concerns, ideas, fears, goals, needs and wants in a planning framework aimed at clarifying the next step and action plan" during the event.

One participant, Olympic boxer Nigel Paul, claimed the event was "informative, inspirational and motivational" in preparations for Tokyo 2020.

"We have to focus forward-take on board the lessons, keep our eyes on vision 10 or more Olympic gold medals by 2024, ensure that athletes are at the core of every single thing we [TTOC] do and above all clarify our plan and strategy," added TTOC President Brian Lewis.

"The feedback from in particular the athletes has been extremely positive and constructive.

"We must continue to include the athletes and seek their input."

An Olympic bronze medal won by javelin thrower Keshorn Walcott was Trinidad and Tobago's only podium finish of Rio 2016.

Walcott had won the gold medal at London 2012, only Trinidad's second since they made their Olympic debut in the British capital in 1948.

The other gold medal had come at Montreal 1976 when Hasley Crawford won the 100m.
