Browne after BOA presidency
LIEUTENANT-COLONEL Trevor Browne will be coming with his guns blazing in his bid for the presidency of the Barbados Olympic Association (BOA).
A veteran sports administrator, Browne will be battling with former Cabinet Minister Noel Lynch and fellow BOA director Sandra Osborne for the vacant top post at the October 25 elections as the long-serving Steve Stoute isn’t seeking re-election after being in the position since 1996.
“There needs to be a lot more transparency in the way the BOA operates and a lot more involvement of talented persons at the leadership level in sports,” the 64-year-old retired electrical engineer at the Barbados Light Power told WEEKENDSPORT in a wide-ranging interview yesterday.
“I’ve played my role as a support director and I’m quite sure that I’m ready now, especially since I’ve retired and Mr Stoute is leaving to play a far more significant leadership role,” added Browne, who has been a BOA director since 2004. (EZS)
