THE JURY IS STILL OUT on the Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Athletic Confederation’s impact on track and field in Barbados.
Vice president of the Athletics Association of Barbados (AAB), Noel Lynch, can see both sides of the coin, saying there are positives and negatives for local athletes if CAC meets are inevitably replaced with North American, Central American And Caribbean (NACAC) Athletics Championships events.
Lynch was weighing the possible consequences in an interview with NATION SPORT after the IAAF ruled that it would only recognise one governing body per region and won’t therefore provide funding to CAC.
“In my personal opinion CAC and NACAC can’t easily be one and the same, because when you talk about NACAC you bring in powers like America and Canada, so that is already a level higher than CAC and there are development objectives that can’t easily be had there,” Lynch said.
