The BOA is pleased to have been able to assist them in their journeys to success.”
Mrs. Smith-King said “I am looking forward to spending the next couple of weeks with the team in Peru. The Pan Am Games always provide a great atmosphere of friendly competition in which Bermuda’s athletes excel. It’s an honour to be a part of their experience. I would also like to thank and acknowledge those who support our athletes—the trainers, medical staff and coaches—who will also be with us in Peru, as well as their employers in Bermuda who have so generously provided them with time off to attend the Games. It’s heartwarming to see our community get behind Team Bermuda in this way.”
The Pan American Games are the world’s third largest international sporting festival (surpassed only by the Olympics and the Asian Games). The XVIII Pan American Games will run from 26 July to 11 August, and will host 7,000 athletes from 41 nations competing in over 400 events across 39 sports. Bermuda has competed in all Pan Am (summer) Games since 1967, taking home a total of 9 medals.

CGF logo Trinidad and Tobago will host the 2021 Commonwealth Youth Games after they were selected as the host city of the multi-sport event by the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) today.

Trinidad and Tobago were bidding against Gibraltar for the right to stage the competition and both Commonwealth Games Associations (CGAs) were praised as excellent bidders by the CGF Evaluation Commission following visits in January and February this year.

The CGF Executive Board voted for Trinidad and Tobago as the host of the 2021 Games at their Executive Board Meeting at the Macdonald Burlington Hotel in Birmingham following impressive presentations from both CGAs.

Trinidad and Tobago’s success builds on the back of the Bahamas hosting a successful Games in 2017 and continues the CGF’s commitment to small states and island states.

CGF President Dame Louise Martin DBE: “We are delighted to award Trinidad and Tobago the opportunity to host the 2021 Commonwealth Youth Games.

“We had a very strong bid process and the Board felt at this point in time, the Caribbean offers a fantastic platform for the Commonwealth Sports Movement to build upon.

“We look forward to working closely with Trinidad and Tobago in the lead up to the Games in what we are confident will be a fantastic event for the aspiring young athletes of the Commonwealth.

Gibraltar and Trinidad and Tobago have been praised for their strong bids for the 2021 Commonwealth Youth Games with the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) set to decide the host city for the event at their Board Meeting later this month.

After re-opening the Bid Process in July 2018, the Gibraltar and Trinidad and Tobago Commonwealth Games Associations (CGAs) submitted bids to the CGF ahead of the deadline of October 2018. The CGF Evaluation Commission attended site visits to both countries in January and February to assess both bids for the multi-sport competition.

The Evaluation Commission was chaired by CGF Head of Commonwealth Youth Games Rachel Simon and included CGF Chief Operating Officer Darren Hall, Commonwealth Games England Sport Director Don Parker and St Vincent and the Grenadines CGA Secretary General Keith Joseph.

Following the visits and a detailed review of the two bids, evaluation reports were produced for the CGF Executive Board on both CGAs.

The Executive Board will make a final decision on the host of the Commonwealth Youth Games at their Executive Board meeting on 20-21 June in Birmingham following presentations from both CGAs. The announcement on the host city will be made by the CGF on 21 June.

CGF President Dame Louise Martin DBE: “We are delighted to have two excellent bids from Gibraltar and Trinidad and Tobago. The evaluation reports make clear that both bids, in their own distinct ways, would make great future Commonwealth Youth Games hosts. We look forward to both CGAs presenting to our Executive Board in Birmingham.

“Finally, I would like to thank the respective Commonwealth Games Associations, Governments, partners and stakeholders for their work conducted to date and for supporting the Commonwealth Sports Movement.”
