All the time people saying that they should not have pros on the US basketball team. They are spoil millionaires. They will dominate and there will be no competition, the tv ratings will fall because the will run roughshod over everybody and win the gold medal. They got 2 back to back tough games, and they crying like friggin wimps. Allyuh want competition. Take competition in allyuh arse.

The men's 10,000M race was probably the best event I've seen so far. Farah of Great Britian won that race like a borse....he was last at one point, he made some strides then got tripped and fell and he still came and out ran everyone in the end. For a long ass race, it was thrilling. True grit and perseverance was on display.

Americans dominating the Olympic medal table

They doing it once again this Olympics. I will say their strong dominance in swimming this year has given them a bigger medal advantage on the overall Olympic medal count this year

I do believe in the future Olympics China will be going neck and neck with them in the medals

Have been impressed with the depth and breadth in participation of Poland. Although Cuba has dropped off, we could still learn much from the capacity they have built in this respect. In similar vein, Jamaica.

The stadium has had/had steeplechase capacity since its inception. Imagine in all these decades, we have NOT produced steeplechasers. But even more basically, why don't we have credible 5000 and 10000m runners? Why don't we have hammer throwers instead of mischief makers?

Actually, he just might be. But honestly what difference does it make. Both of them spread joy to the world.

Perhaps absolutely true.

Yet, my view is that policymakers have failed to incentivize boredom, idleness, curiosity and ability.

A net of mischief-making is somewhat of an acceptable outcome after policy has reasonably attempted to harness and benefit potential. Not before. We should try it just once.

It's revolting to listen to discussions about the condition of sport in T&T and hear several of the same elements that plagued the 70s and 80s recounted as plaguing 2016.

We are a reactionary people. At least for five minutes. Then we move on to the next thing in a cycle and circus of a lack of focus.

It's likely we have a world-class pole vaulter sleeping under a bridge. Next to the steeplechaser.

Watching Brazil play volleyball at home is so much fun. The crowd would prefer blowouts though.

NEWSDAY tt
New sporting facility unveiled in Sangre Grande
MARCELL THOMAS Wednesday, August 17 2016

Sports in Sangre Grande received a boost yesterday with the official opening of the North Eastern
Regional Multi­Purpose Sport Facility at Ojoe Road Recreation Ground. The newly completed multi­milliondollar
indoor arena will accomodate basketball, volleyball, table tennis, and gymnastics. It was packed to
capacity yesterday with Minister of Sport and Youth Affairs Darryl Smith, Member of Parliament for Toco /
Sangre Grande Glenda Jennings­Smith, Chairman of the Sangre Grande Regional Corporation Terry
Rondon, Councillors, Aldermen and bus loads of students from neighbouring vacation camps attending.
This modern day structure has a seating accommodation of approximately 800 and is designed to host two
basketball games simultaneously.
This facility boasts to be one of the first of its kind in Trinidad and Tobago that has retractable bleachers and
floor markings for only basketball.
Specially invited guest Rondon entertained the crowd with an opening “Champion” dance and became
emotional as he said that he feels like the community of Sangre Grande are all champions due to the
“champion facility”.
He said there was always a need for such a centre within the region and said “it belongs to the community,
therefore you all need to take care of it.” He added: “Further employment will be given to community members
as it relates to maintenance of the facility.” Jennings­ Smith later thanked Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley and
the Minister of Sport and commended them for their efforts in ensuring the project was completed.
She said it will help youths in her area achieve their dreams.
She acknowledged though that “to whom much is given much is expected” and accepted that she too is
responsible for ensuring that the facility is properly maintained and utilised. In reference to 2012 Olympic gold
medallist Keshorn Walcott, who is a son of the soil of the Toco / Sangre Grande region, she said the facility will
aid in the the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee’s 10 gold by 2024 Olympics thrust.
Smith, discussing the history of the project, said it was one which his Ministry inherited when it was about 60
percent complete.
He gave a special thanks to MP Jennings­Smith for her commitment and dedication in ensuring that the people
of Sangre Grande and environs were delivered not only what was promised but rather what was deserved.
He further lauded the people of Sangre Grande for their patience throughout the years and gratitude was also
extended to contractor Shanghai Construction Group. Touching on the topic of the Olympics, he noted that this
year, TT have not only made history by fielding their most competitors, but also their youngest team, their most
females and competitors in the most sports.
The Minister expressed his commitment for continuity in youth development as he promised further investment
into sport at primary and secondary school level.
To mark the official opening, both Jennings­Smith and Smith tested their basketball skills, much to the delight of
those gathered. Closing the evening’s formalities, the crowd was entertained by an exhibition game between
Grande All­Stars and TT’s U­19s who won the quarter 26­18.

Simone Biles Belize connection.

http://edition.cnn.com/2016/08/16/sport/simone-biles-belize-ties-rio-olympics-gymnastics-2016/

Simone Biles appears to have strong roots to Belize. He mother is from there. She is of Garifuna descent. The Garifunas are related to St Vincent.  And she has visited there. But
Allyuh remember the last American superstar that had connection to Belize. Marian Jones.
