Sunday, August 9 2015
Team T&T ends the Junior Caribbean Road Championships with 6 medals (4 Golds and 2 Bronze) to level our country's biggest medal haul at these Championships just last year in 2014.
T&T captured 4 Junior Caribbean Titles with Tyler Cole winning double gold in the Juvenile Men Time Trial and Road Race while Teniel Campbell, in her last international competition as Junior was the Junior Women Time Trial and Road Race champion as well. Ramon Belmontes captured his first International medal with a Bronze in the Junior Men Time Trial while young Jabari Whiteman earned a bronze in the Juvenile Men Road Race in his debut on National Duty.
With this medal haul, T&T tops the medal tally and thus will also be named the Most Outstanding Country for the tournament.
One must not forget the great contribution also provided by Nicholas Paul, Sidney Joseph, Emmanuel Watson, Kemp Orosco and Ronell Woods to the entire contingent.
Kudos must also be extended to the Management Staff who have worked tirelessly with this team for the past two months on a totally voluntary basis. Even with the late notice of the Championships' dates, Team Coach - Ashton Williams, Team Manager - Joseph Charles-Walcott and Team Mechanic - Kevin Tinto worked several times per week with the team and the results are simply fruits of the team's labour.
The contingent is due to return to Trinidad around midnight tomorrow night, therefore, we wish them a safe journey home so that we can also celebrate with you.
Once again, the TTCF extends their congratulations to our champion team!
