Weeks after the 2012 London Olympics at which Barbados fielded its smallest team in recent times and did not win a single medal, the leadership of the Barbados Olympic Association (BOA) is under challenge.
After 16 years at the helm of the BOA, president Steve Stoute and secretary general Erskine Simmons will be facing some competition at the upcoming election of officers.
Lieutenant Colonel Trevor Browne, president of the Barbados Table Tennis Association, will be facing off against Stoute for the top post, while Craig Archer, president of the Barbados Squash Association, is challenging Simmons for the position of secretary general.
The annual general meeting of the BOA will be held on October 17, marking the end of the 2008 to 2012 Olympic cycle, as well as four successive four-year terms for both Stoute and Simmons.Please read the full story in today’s SUNDAY SUN, or in the eNATION edition.
