UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

The overseas-based quartet of Darlene Ramdin, Channon Thompson, Sinead Jack and Krystle Esdelle head a group of 30 players who began training with Cuban-born T&T coach and T&T Volleyball Federation, Director, Francisco Cruz on Monday at the Jean Pierre Complex, Mucurapo, for the 15th Pan American Volleyball Cup in Santo Domingo, from June 30 to July 11.

The squad will also be eyeing the World Championship Qualification early rounds while there will also be the Caribbean Zonal Volleyball Association (CAZOVA) Under-23 Championship which will serve as a qualifier to the Pan American Under-23 Championship.

In addition to the European-based quartet, a few other members of the training squad were all part of the senior women's team which narrowly missed qualification to a first ever FIVB World Indoor Championship spot in Italy last year, falling to Mexico on home soil.

They include Jalicia Ross-Kydd, Rechez Lyndsay, Marisha Herbert, and Makala York, while among the notable absentees include recently retired Kelly-Anne Billingy, Rheeza Grant and Abby Blackman. Leading the core of Under-23 players are Kaylon Cruickshank, Reanne Young, Destiny Leon, Aaliyah Alexis and Nicolette De Mille.

The six-time CAZOVA champions and winners of the title for the past five years will compete with 11 other countries including hosts Dominican Republic, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Cuba, México, Peru, Puerto Rico, USA and Venezuela in Santo Domingo.
