Lynch and Osborne ready to lead BOA

THE next leader of the Barbados Olympic Association (BOA) could be the most powerful woman in the tennis administration or a former Cabinet minister.

That’s because former minister of tourism Noel Lynch, who is the current chief executive officer of the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA), has tossed his hat in the ring along with vice-president of the Barbados Tennis Association, Sandra Osborne.

The elections, slated for October 25, assumed more significance with the decision by incumbent president Steve Stoute not to seek another term. Stoute, who turned 75 last week, has headed the BOA since 1996 and demits office having served 49 years in the Olympic movement.

In an exclusive interview with NATIONSPORT yesterday, the charismatic Lynch promised that if given the chance, he will change the image of the BOA and give it a more community and people-centred outlook. (MK)
