Sport Minister Shamfa Cudjoe said she will be seeking additional funding in the upcoming budget to further support T&T athletes in their development at all levels. Speaking at a press conference this afternoon, Minister Cudjoe said while T&T did not medal at the recent Tokyo Olympic Games, our athletes represented us well. She also said every citizen has a part to play in supporting our athletes.
She thanked the athletes and administrators for their hard word and dedication against many challenges. Minister Cudjoe said the National sport policy will guide the many development stages and areas for our athletes and young people.
Chairman of SporTT Douglas Camacho added that Sport governing bodies needed to sort out their internal issues as there is still too much ‘Bachannal’ and ‘kankalang’ which only serves to prevent corporate T&T from investing in many sporting disciplines.
