Whether it is athletics or other sports, our people have always showed excellence in the various sporting disciplines.
Many of our excellent athletes would have originated in countries considered poor by European definitions of such countries. Many of the athletes/sportsmen and sportswomen would have also germinated in social environments that did not have developed scouting systems to harvest the best trainees in particular disciplines. Yet our athletes, sportsmen and sportswomen attained excellence in their various fields of endeavor.
As we commemorate ,celebrate and Mark African History Month 2017 we wish to congratulate Clive Llyod who as a former West Indies captain led our team through some remarkable triumphs.
Clive was born in Georgetown, Guyana, then called British Guiana.
He led the West Indies as captain in a spell of wins for twenty seven(27) test matches without defeat.
Today, I salute Clive Lloyd .
