UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

I have received news of the passing of Dr. Fernando Antonio Beltranena Valladares, the former President of the Guatemala National Olympic Committee and Vice President of Pan Am Sports with a heavy heart and profound sadness.

I extend on behalf of the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) and the Caribbean National Olympic Committees (CANOC) sincerest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. 

Brian Lewis- President of Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee and the Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees.

His passing is a deeply profound moment for all those in the Olympic Movement who came to know Dr. Fernando Beltranena Valladares and had great affection for him and held him in high esteem.

An unwavering champion and advocate for the Olympic movement, Olympic Values, Olympism, Olympic Values Education and the Olympic Academy.

I first met Dr. Beltranena about twenty years ago at an  International Olympic Academy session. He immediately took me under his wing and since then remained a mentor, guide, inspiration and motivation. He always made time to seek me out and provide words of encouragement and guidance.

His indomitable will and belief in the power of sport and the Olympic values to make a transformation within the Americas will remain a lighthouse of hope and inspiration. 

On a personal basis Dr. Beltranena not only guided me on matters related to the Olympic Academy but also encouraged my passion for bowties. 

Dr. Fernando Antonio Beltranena Valladares. Your generosity of spirit, contribution, service, dignity and selflessness will remain an indelible and undiminished memory.

The thoughts and prayers of the Caribbean Olympic Movement are with his family, friends and colleagues at this difficult time.

Dr Fernando Beltranena made a positive difference may he rest in peace.

Brian Lewis- President of Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee and the Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees.
