T&T’s 4x100m relay team celebrate after capturing silver medals in the event yesterday

Okay okaay yep Im having a flashback to my article on August 23rd 2008 ....lets hope I can repeat one like it or even better!

For those who missed itin 2008 please Read below!

T&T’s 4x100m relay team celebrate after capturing silver medals in the event yesterday.
Andre E Baptiste
From Beijing, China
EVEN as T&T celebrates its second best ever showing at an Olympic Games, following a second silver earned when the 4 x100m relay team placed second to Jamaica yesterday at the Bird Nets in Beijing, China the news is that the team may not be returning home next week as expected.
In 1964, T&T achieved its best ever medal count at the Tokyo Games—one silver, Wendell Mottley in the 400m, and two bronze medals, through Edwin Roberts, 200m and the men’s 4 x400m relay team of Mottley, Kent Bernard, Roberts and Edwin Skinner.
Richard Thompson who won T&T’s first silver medal at this year’s Beijing Games in the men’s 100m, said that celebrations to honour the team’s performance may have to be put on hold.
“I am not sure as yet, when I will be coming back home, but I am looking forward to coming back home because it has been a wonderful time for all of us,” said Thompson.
“The relay team has been invited to Zurich to run the 4 x100 metres and there maybe one or two other meets afterwards on August 29. After that we will definitely be back home and we hope to see a full airport of fans, just waiting to celebrate with us. It is the best feeling in the world to run for your country,” he said.
“And now that people want to see us run, it is good for Trinidad and Tobago, it helps to put us on the map even more and let more and more people learn about us and our culture,” noted Thompson.
Marc Burns said, “Yes we have an opportunity to run in some meets, so we are not certain of a date as yet, but we are looking forward to returning home, to be celebrating with the people.”
Burns said Emmanuel Callender and Keston Bledman are very excited to return home.
“These two guys are great guys, they made our job easier, the chemistry between them on and off the track was exceptional.”
T&T 4x400m men finish 5th 
T&T’s men’s 4 x 400m team failed to advance to today's final, when they could only place fifth in their semifinal heat two.
Running from lane two, T&T was never in the hunt, and only once when Jevon Toppin ran a brilliant second leg, they managed to get as close as fourth.
But in the end, the team of Ato Modibo, Jovon Toppin, Cowin Mills and Stan Waithe finished in a time of 3:04.12, with Great Britain winning in a time of 2.59.33. Bahamas was second in 2.59.88 and Jamaica third in 3.00.09.
T&T’s 400 metres finalist, Renny Quow did not participate in the relay semifinal.

WEST Indies and national cricketer Dwayne Bravo was injured in a car crash on the Uriah Butler Highway, near Chaguanas, yesterday afternoon.
The collision happened in the vicinity of contractors Seereeram Brothers, not far from the site where West Indies cricketer Runako Morton was killed in a crash earlier this year.
Police were told that at around 1.30 p.m., Bravo was at the wheel of his white Jaguar sports car when there was an accident which involved two other vehicles. No one was injured in the other vehicles, police said.
Bravo's front-seat passenger, a male, also escaped injury.
However, Bravo, 29, of Santa Cruz, is reported to have suffered injuries to both hands and was treated at the Chaguanas Health Facility and discharged.
The crash happened on the highway's northbound lane.

congrats to Japan on early win

Japan start with a win
World champions Japan opened their London 2012 account with a win as they edged out Canada 2-1 in Group F of the women's Football competition.
Two quickfire goals in 11 first-half minutes gave them the perfect start at the City of Coventry Stadium, but they were made to work hard to claim the win as the Canadians hit back after the break.

After a bright opening, Japan opened the scoring after 33 minutes when the lively Nahomi Kawasumi put them ahead.

And a minute before the interval that lead was doubled - Aya Miyama beating Canada goalkeeper Erin McLeod.

Time to promote London Olympics

Andre E Baptiste
Wednesday, April 11, 2012There are 106 days to the start of the 2012 London Olympics and nothing is being done to promote these prestigious games in T&T. Of course, there are those who will argue that “nothing” is a strong word. They would prefer me to say “not enough,” but alas that would be wishful thinking. We have to stop pretending that we carefully plan the road ahead in sports, because this is far from the truth, even if it is ideal. And for those miscreants in sports administration that believe that it is unfair to compare us with other countries, my advice is to “wake up and smell…” For those who have been in this beautiful country over the last six months and may be wondering where is all the promotion and drive along with energy and zeal for one of the greatest sporting spectacles in the world hiding these last few months, I suggest you read on. Let me do the job of the ailing sport administrators in this country, in particular those who must “ensure” that the proper systems are in place for this country to have a chance of gathering some medals. And yes, while those of you with sporting acumen, will state, it is too late to start to think about grooming some for medals, I want to disagree, because it is never too late to learn something new that can improve someone’s performance or give that Olympic participant an edge.
