Chairman of the Games, vice chief of
Defence Staff, Brig Gen Anthony Phillips-
Spencer described this year s event as some-
"The historical significance of the Games
must be remembered. The more mature
members of our national community may
recall the original version which was last
held in 1978.
"At that time the Games was held annu-
ally and involved participation by members
of the Defence Force, Police Service, Fire
Service and the Prisons Service," he said.
He noted, however, that based on the
revised and Cabinet-approved model, Quad-
rangular Games 2014 will include athletic
competition in four categories: Primary
Schools and Secondary Schools, both to be
held on the first day of the Games while
the National Security Youth Clubs and

Brig Phillips-Spencer said by including
primary and secondary school athletes, as
well as the members and trainees of the
youth programmes operated by the Ministry
of National Security, Defence and Protective
Service Divisions, and the Trinidad and
Tobago Cadet Force, the Games will support
the achievement of strategic goals such as:
Crime Reduction and Containment and
Citizen/Public Security .
The schools will have a new event which
is an 8x200 metres relay. This was done to
facilitate the time of pre-season of the ath-
letes of the country.
Kelvin Nancoo, who represented the Min-
istry of Education, complimented Phillips-
Spencer for involving the schools.
He said, "The Ministry of Education has
worked in collaboration with the Ministry
of National Security, Justice and Sport to
ensure this Quadrangular Games come to
fruition. Clearly, one will understand that
Ministry of Education is a partner and stake-
holder as the Games is fondly referred to."
Nancoo noted that the Tobago House of
Assembly was also on board and Tobago
will be represented.
"As you will know, Tobago is the Sec-
ondary Schools Champions while Port-of-
Spain and Environs are the Primary Schools
Champions. In this Games there will only
be relays and one would know how exciting
relay events are."
The Primary and Secondary Schools will
perform from 1.00 pm on the opening day.
Among the athletes expected are: Tyriq
Horsford, Akani Hislop, Janae DeGannes,
Ethan Forde, Caliyah Wallace, Ashton Gill,
