T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

The re­main­der of T&T’s se­nior men and women’s teams will leave for the 2019 Rug­by Amer­i­c­as North (RAN) Sev­ens Tour­na­ment in the Cay­man Is­lands on Thurs­day. Half of the con­tin­gent left on Wednes­day.

The tour­na­ment this year will be a qual­i­fi­er for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.

The men, who are be­ing led by Leon Pan­tor, will at­tempt to earn a qual­i­fy­ing berth with­out the ser­vices of reg­u­lar coach Lar­ry Mendez, who is in the Unit­ed States on a coach­ing in­tern­ship pro­gramme. Mendez was re­placed by in­ter­im coach Fe­li­cian Guer­ra, who told the me­dia his team is hyped and rar­ing to go. Ac­cord­ing to Fe­li­cian, the play­ers have re­spond­ed well to his meth­ods and are ready to show all their prepa­ra­tion was not in vain.

Mean­while, the women’s team is coached by Carl­ton Fe­lix and will be led by Kath­leen Stephens. Fe­lix said in a re­lease on Tues­day that his charges are ready to show that their sec­ond-place fin­ish at the 2018 RAN Sev­ens com­pe­ti­tion and sub­se­quent qual­i­fi­ca­tion to the 2019 Pan Amer­i­can Games in Li­ma, Pe­ru, was no fluke.

He not­ed his team in­tends to go one bet­ter and win the tour­na­ment this year. T&T Rug­by Foot­ball Union (TTR­FU) pres­i­dent Col­in Pe­ters, who on Tues­day com­mend­ed the ef­forts of the staff at the Sport Com­pa­ny of T&T and Min­istry of Sport and Youth Af­fairs for the per­sis­tence shown to en­sure funds were ready for his teams, al­so thanked T&T Olympic Com­mit­tee pres­i­dent Bri­an Lewis and for­mer TTR­FU pres­i­dent Leslie Fi­garo for the sup­port shown for him.

Pe­ters said: “It is im­por­tant to note that in these dif­fi­cult fi­nan­cial times, we can still count on the gov­ern­ment of the coun­try to sup­port the Na­tion­al Sport­ing Or­gan­i­sa­tions (NSOs) in their quest to bring sport­ing glo­ry to T&T.”
