The Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) are currently in the process of establishing a base for the T&T Olympic team for the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in August.

The organisation was represented by General Secretary Annette Knott, who was also accompanied by Dr Ian Hypolite, coach of 2013 400m hurdles World Champion Jehue Gordon, as well as The Brazil Link’s General Manager Cy Padmore. The team arrived in Brazil on Monday, where they spent two days in the north eastern city of Recife, and then travelled further south to Juiz de Fora, a municipality in the Minas Gerais state, 40km outside of the state of Rio de Janeiro.
