In a tweet this morning, the Sport Company of Trinidad and Tobago is inviting the public to come out and welcome the returning cyclists from Team TTO on the Promenade this evening.
The cyclists were successful in this year’s Pan Am Elite Track Cycling Championships in Bolivia. The returning TTO team includes Nicholas “Nico” Paul, the world record holder in the Men’s Sprint 200m, Njisane Phillip, Keron Bramble, Akil Campbell, Dominique Lovell, Kwesi Browne and Quincy Alexander.
According to an article on Team TTO’s website:
“All in all, this was TT’s best ever competitive display at the Pan American Championships as they pedalled off with two gold (Men’s Team Sprint and Men’s Sprint) and one bronze medal (Men’s Keirin). The squad also left the South American continent with a new world record (Flying 200m), two new Pan American Championship records (Flying 200m and Men’s Team Sprint) and three new national records (Flying 200m, Men’s Team Sprint and 1km Time Trial)”.
The event is scheduled to begin at 3:00p.m this afternoon on the Brian Lara Promenade. The event will see performances by DJ Bravo and MX Prime.
