Get real!

ANOTHER ADMINISTRATOR BELIEVES it’s time Barbados stopped making sport at sports. Former Barbados Amateur Basketball Association president Terry Inniss contends that the country’s high-profile struggles will persist until the public starts treating sports like a business and not a pastime. Inniss called for the culture change in response to the recent criticisms levelled at the Barbados Olympic Association for the country’s well-publicized failures at major international meets. “We pay lip service to our sportspeople and it is surprising that [they] get as far as they do, based on the sort of support that we give them,” Inniss reasoned.
