T&T's 2018 CAC Archery Team

04/24/18 10:13:pm

The following is the team selected to represent Trinidad & Tobago at the CAC Games in Barranquilla, Colombia in July/August 2018.

At the CAC Qualifying tournament in the Dominican Republic Trinidad & Tobago secured six places. The following persons have been selected to fill these places. 

Female Compound: Priyanka Dhanie.  

Male Compound: Hasmath Ali,  Jonathan Thomas,  Peter Kong.

Male Recurve: Daniel Catariz Ragbir,  Johnathan Mosca.

Coaches:  Edward Ramesar – Recurve.   George Vire – Compound.

Manager: Gregory Quesnel.

 

Alternates:

In the male recurve division Trinidad & Tobago is the first alternate in the event of a withdrawal by any country.

In a similar vein we have selected alternates in the event of a late withdrawal by any of our athletes These are as follows.

Male Compound: George Vire.

Male Recurve (in order of ranking):  Sherwin Francis, Robert Gibson, Parasan Ramsumair.

 

Selection rationale:

Prior to the qualifying tournament in the Dominican Republic the Federation had been asked by the TTOC for submission of the team. I explained that this was not possible as no places had been secured as we were about to leave for the qualifier. 

On our return we were left will little time to submit the names as the closing date for this is April 30th, with two earlier deadlines for participation numbers on April 13th and travel submission data by April 20th.  We returned to Trinidad on the evening of the 9th April. The Federation met both early dates and  will submit the final document on or before the 30th April.

Please also note that final team approval is the purview of the TTOC and will be done after final meeting with their Executive and Chef de Mission. The entire team selected to represent T&T ( in all sports) must then be ratified by the General Council made up  all the National Governing Bodies.
