Barbados’ fire officers will be banking on history when the Caribbean Association of Fire Fighters Goodwill Games climaxes tomorrow at Passage Road in the City of Bridgetown. The two-day event was won by host country St Lucia in the inaugural year 2008 while Trinidad and Tobago won the last tournament which was staged in the twin-island Republic in 2010. The Bajan edition was launched at Briar Hall Ground in Christ Church on Thursday with teams arriving from Trinidad and Tobago, Martinique and Guyana looking to deny Barbados the home advantage in five-a-side football and Twenty20 cricket. A number of fun but challenging events were only on the cards such as, musical plates, balloon burst, fill the bottle, will you consume and big sack races to test the fitness and agility of the competitors. In delivering the feature address, Chief Fire Officer Wilfred Marshall pointed out the unifying agent sport had always been in the Caribbean. President of Caribbean Association of Fire Fighters (CAFF), Alex Bynoe stressed the need for the participants to enjoy the competitions while building greater unities across the region. (KB)
