Lewis: Dr Simmons report negative to TT sports

Sunday, April 28 2013

SECRETARY General of the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) Brian Lewis has called for integrity in local sports if there is to be the kind of growth expected by all.

In a release yesterday Lewis, who will contest the post of president at the TTOC election next month said, “Integrity in and within Trinidad and Tobago sport is a priority and must be placed at the top of the agenda. Good Governance, transparency, accountability, ethics and the core values of sport must be the foundation stone for the development and growth of local sport.”

He said it is the duty, obligation and responsibility of all dedicated, committed and passionate sport leaders and sport administrators to do what’s best for sport. He added, “The youth, children and athletes who participate in sport, place their trust in the leaders to look after their best interests.”

National Sport Organisations (NSOs) have a duty to protect the autonomy, integrity and independence of Sport. He told Newsday, “If TT is to earn respect and have a positive international stature in Sport. Not only is a zero tolerance anti doping in sport culture important but a similar zero tolerance anti corruption in sport culture.”

According to Lewis “Whether we are for or against and feel it is unfair or not, the truth remains that the international and local image of TT sport is negatively impacted by the recent Concacaf , Sir David Simmons, report.”

“However, in every crisis there is opportunity. All of TT Sport can learn from the football experience. It makes no constructive sense to hide our heads in the sand.”
