Minister Cudjoe expresses satisfaction with Olympic outcome

“Once again the red, white and black is flown proudly on an international stage. This moment is one that we as citizens can reflect on with pride and emulation as we steer ahead toward the development of our next cohort of extraordinary athletes.” These were the sentiments echoed by Minister Shamfa Cudjoe on the elevation of the Men’s 4×100 Olympic Team to Gold status today.

The T&T team comprised of Richard Thompson, Marc Burns, Keston Bledman, Emmanuel Callender and Aaron Armstrong was originally awarded silver medals after placing second in the Beijing Olympic Games.

Minister Cudjoe reconfirmed Government’s commitment to the relentless pursuit of excellence by all athletes representing Trinidad and Tobago.
