Let the Games begin
The colourful parade of flags and teams signalled the start of the 27th Biennial Campus Games which opened today at the Cave Hill, University of the West Indies Campus with a levity which disguised the expected eight days of intense rivalry as the host and St Augustine try to wrestle the title away from Mona.
The smooth and diverse accents of alumni Andrew Pilgrim as master of ceremony provided plenty of intimacy and mirth for the audience.
Professor Eudine Barriteau, Deputy Principal and the Chair of the local organizing committee also addressed the athletes and declared her impartiality as she wore black and gold, Cave Hill’s colours to reflect the colours of the Caribbean.
Of course the athletes took every opportunity to shout the intentions of their particular campus being the champions at the end of the competition.
