UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

A new system will be put in place to reward Tobago athletes for outstanding performances.

This was announced by the Tobago House of Assembly's Secretary of Sport and Youth Affairs Jomo Pitt.

“We do have a committee in place that is going to submit their final report within the next week, which will be taken to Executive Council to be ratified before it’s made public,” Pitt said during Wednesday's  post Executive Council media briefing at the Administrative Complex, Calder Hall, Tobago

“Going forward, once we have this policy, it will make it easier for athletes and coaches to know, in advance, what they can expect from the Tobago House of Assembly.”

Pitt congratulated the athletes who competed in major international events recently, including double gold medalist at the Para World Championships Akeem Stewart and Lalonde Gordon, who anchored Trinidad and Tobago’s men's 4x400 metres relay team to win gold at the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Championships in London on August 13.

“Let us also acknowledge our coaches who would’ve paved the way, providing athletes with a platform for them to launch their careers,” Pitt added.

He also provided an update on funding for sporting bodies, saying they have already submitted their budgets for the next fiscal year.

“One of the things I’ve mandated from them is that they must have some measurable goal,” Pitt continued, “What we don’t have are measurable goals for when assistance is given to them.”

The Secretary said based on these goals, benchmarks will be set for the sporting bodies.

"This will allow the Division to “measure what we’re doing and how successful we’re doing it.”
