Special recognitions announced at National Sports Awards ceremony


Some Special awards were presented last Saturday night, when the National Sports Council held its 2016 National Sports Awards ceremony at the SVG Community College’s auditorium.

Recognized for her outstanding tenure as director of Physical Education and Sports was Lynette Glasgow.

Also put in the spotlight was Dr Perry De Freitas, for his work as physiotherapist, attending to many of the sportsmen and women.

The trio of awards was completed with Hope International Football Club being recognised.

A football organization which has been around for just over 21 years, Hope International has become a household name in sporting circles here in St Vincent and the Grenadines.

Apart from those awards, Kevin King was named the Groundsman of the Year and Rohan Thomas, Sports Journalist of the Year.

However, not named at last Saturday’s ceremony, was the winner of the Sports Photograph of the Year.

The National Sports Awards ceremony was held under the theme: “Self Belief – A key ingredient to Success”.

The featured speaker was Terrance Davis, while SVG’s Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves and Minister of Tourism, Sports and Culture Ces Mc Kie made addresses.

Gonsalves, in his delivery, declared the designation of Thaddeus Michael Findlay as the latest addition to the list of Sports Ambassadors.
