THE STEVE STOUTE/Erskine Simmons dynasty is very much alive.
That, and pretty much the rest of their previous board.
The big drama that was supposed to be the Barbados Olympic Association’s (BOA) elections turned out to be much ado about nothing as all but one of the existing ten board members, including all five executive officers, were returned to office last night at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.
It was an overwhelming show of support from the 32 national federations for the incumbent board, with Stoute gaining an unprecedented fifth term as president after easily beating fellow board member Lieutenant Colonel Trevor Browne by 34 votes to nine.
“This is extremely heartening because that means that the federations are satisfied with the work I have done for the last 16 years, most of which has been achieved in the previous 12 years,” said Stoute in a NATION SPORT interview after his re-election.
