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.”

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.
