I believe he played a couple friendly games under Alvin Corneal after the Strike Squad era. 
Mike Agostini won gold in 100 yards (1954).

No proof of that on the internet. But if you could find it, I would appreciate it.

Don't have any internet proof. Answer based on memory. Other guys on the team were Geoffroy Lake, Alvin Thomas and Anton Thomas.

I completely agree.  ;D

On a side note, Agostini's younger brother played for the WI team that toured England in the late 50s. And of course he played for TT.

They have to be in TF or Cycling?  So that is Motley, Bernard, Skinner, Roberts, Ato. I don't know of any of these people siblings playing football. I maybe wrong. Cycling was Roger Gibbon. I don't know if he ever had a son.

Fitzroy and his brother used to play for Ebonites from Barataria. I can't remember any of them making the national football team. Fitzroy did ride bike for TT.

Wendy Hoyte. Gold medal in the 4x100 CW games, Brisbane, Australia, 1982.

At the time of this post, only Gavin had played for TT but now both brothers have.

I also said Trinidadian footballer's mother. Hoyte plays for TT and Wendy is his mum but neither was born in TT. The Hoytes qualify for TT via their dad, a Trini born athlete who represented England.
