BOXING (Amateur)

NATIONAL BOXER Michael Alexander was eliminated from Olympic contention after losing at the AIBA Olympic Qualification Event in Baku, Azerbaijan, yesterday.

Needing two more wins to book a place at the 2016 Rio Olympics in August, lightweight (60 kilogrammes) boxer Alexander lost to Chinese boxer Jun Shan on points 2-0 in a round-of-16 bout.

Two of the three judges ruled in the favour of Shan 29-27, while the third judge had the match ending in a tie 28-28. Alexander needed to finish in the top five to qualify for the Olympics.

The only Trinidad and Tobago boxer still in contention for a Olympic berth is welterweight boxer Aaron Prince. Light heavyweight Andrew Fermin, light welterweight Jean Paul Cooper and bantanweight Anthony Joseph were all eliminated earlier in the tournament. Prince is trying to join super heavyweight TT boxer Nigel Paul at the Olympics.

A victory in the quarterfinal stage tomorrow will see Prince qualify for the Olympics. Paul sealed a spot in the Olympics after advancing to the final of the Americas Zone Qualifying tournament in Argentina in March.

A few fans stopped me to ask what I thought about the West In­dies' per­for­mance so far in the se­ries against In­dia in both the T20's and the ODIs.

2019 Pan Amer­i­can Games

The Pan Amer­i­can Games closed on Sun­day but T&T is still cel­e­brat­ing its his­toric per­for­mance, claim­ing 13 medals, the most ever.

GOLFER Ysabelle Lawrence and martial arts’ Gabrielle Wood brought team TTO’s triumphant performance at the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, Peru to an end yesterday, hours before a ceremony closed the curtains to the quadrennial event after more than two weeks of action.

31 July is CANOC day. A message was sent out. That it barely registered or caught the attention of sport stakeholders in the Caribbean is an opportunity not a slight. CANOC must embrace the opportunity to heighten awareness and engage in enhanced outreach to provide information about the organisation.

It is cold in Lima, Peru, host city of the 2019 Pan Am Games. In fact, it is winter here in the South American nation.

I came in for some withering criticism recently for adopting the position, that as painful as it is, the current intolerable crime situation is an opportunity for T&T to recalibrate.

With the one-year countdown to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games officially underway, the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee, (TTOC) has announced that TTO athletes will benefit from a pre-games training camp at the Japan Athlete Training Center Osumi, in Osaki Town, Kagoshima Prefecture, as part of Japan’s Host Town Initiative.
