Larry Romany, former president
of the T&T Olympic Committee
and his successor Brian Lewis are
at odds over the intent of Govern-
ment s proposal to stage the T&T
National Games next April.
Finance Minister Larry Howai
during his presentation of the 2014-
2015 budget, at Tower D, Interna-
tional Waterfront Centre, on Wright-
son Road in Port-of-Spain,
announced the Games which will
feature football, basketball, cricket,
netball and athletics in the pilot proj-
ect.The finance minister described
the concept as one in which the
Government could develop a critical
mass of athletes and disciplines.
But Lewis in an interview told
G-Sport, he did not agree with this
concept. He believed that the project
should include all sporting disci-
plines, but his predecessor disagrees.
Romany said, "First of all the
T&T National Games that they
intend to have is to increase partic-
ipation across all communities. I
think the intention is for it to be
community based. I think it involves
the politics. With regards to the
numbers, remember when we were
having the Caribbean Games, we
only had five or six sports because
the number of athletes that you have
to manage, the number of facilities
and venues you would need at the
same time; logistically it becomes a
nightmare when you go up, higher
than five or six (sports).
He added, "I think that it would
be a good test for them to look at
five or six (sports) and then look to
increase it. One would want to look
at the individual sports that they are
targeting. My sense is that it has a
lot to do with community politics.
So they are going to be targeting
sports that have mass participation;
what we would term wash your foot
and come sports, sports that are easy
to participate in."
Lewis said more detail were need-
ed on the roll out of the T&T
"Is the T&T National Games fit-
ting into the long-term sport devel-
opment continuum? Is it in con-
junction with the national sport
organisation and does it tie into their
long term athlete sport development
perspective? How does it integrate
with the National Sport Policy; inte-
grate in terms of the policy frame-
work and objective projecting T&T
international as a sport hub?" he
But Romany expressed doubt that
the Games would be in tandem with
the work being executed by national
sporting organisations (NSOs).
"I think that it would be separate
and apart from what an NSO would
use for development. I suppose this
would be a lot of fun and it would
expose the population to sports and
to these sporting disciplines that
they would have. I don t think it has
a particular end game, with regards
to developing elite athletes. I think
it is more community fun; commu-
