Children admire Crawford’s gold during Olympic Day

Monday, July 10 2017

A HECTIC schedule did not stop Minister of Sport and Youth Affairs Darryl Smith from attending the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) 2017 Olympic Day celebrations at Lord Harris Square, Port of Spain on June 23.

In a brief address, Smith congratulated the TTOC on the decision to focus attention on inviting children to the Olympic Day event.

National athletes from various sporting disciplines turned out to support the local Olympic Day celebrations at Lord Harris Square, Port of Spain.

Keron “Sunny Bling” Sealy - Master of Ceremonies - ensured a vibrant, interactive and entertaining experience notwithstanding the inclement weather.

An exciting highlight at the event, which started at 10am and ended at 2pm, was the opportunity for the children and members of the public to see - some for the first time - Hasely Crawford’s 1976 Olympic gold medal.

Many pictures and selfies were taken with TT’s Olympic hero and his historic gold medal.

Children from several primary schools and kindergartens were in attendance where various national sporting organisations, including the National Association of Athletic Administrators (NAAA), Trinidad and Tobago Volleyball Federation (TTVF), Trinidad and Tobago Hockey Board (TTHB), Trinidad and Tobago Rugby Football Union (TTRFU) among others, set up booths, gave demonstrations and exhibited skills, drills and exercises to the young children.

The children hailed from Rosary Boys, St Rose’s Girls, Belmont Boys RC, SERVOL, Gail Cabral, La Seiva RC and Movant Police Youth.

Olympic Day is commemorated annually by over 200 National Olympic Committees worldwide.

The aim is to educate children on the role of sport in society and the values espoused by the Olympic Movement. In keeping with these objectives, the activities strive to encourage the nation’s youth to Strive for Excellence, to celebrate Friendship and to demonstrate Respect.
