first_imgMINISTER within the Ministry of Education with responsibility for Sport, Nicolette Henry, yesterday lauded the performance of Guyana’s amateur team that contested the second Caribbean Development Boxing Tournament (CDBT) which concluded on Sunday in Barbados.The 11-man Guyanese team and officials, returned to Guyana with 10 gold medals and one silver medal, while Christopher Moore, son coach Clifton Moore was adjudged Best Boxer of the CDBT.Addressing the boxers shortly after their arrival at the Eugene F. Correia International Airport at Ogle yesterday, Minister Henry congratulated the boxers and officials for a job well done and said that the Government of Guyana is “really committed to the development of sport”, so much so that the government has budgeted twice the amount that was budgeted in 2016.Athletes, she said, must go on and make their mark and with this in mind, the government will provide the opportunities as it will invest in athletes and young people. “It was a great experience for you (boxers) to make Guyana proud.”The boxers and officials were met on their arrival at the Airport by Minister Henry, Director of Sport Christopher Jones, president of the Guyana Boxing Association Steve Ninvalle and president of the Guyana Olympic Association (GOA) K. Juman-Yassin and shortly after they were introduced to members of the media.Chairing the proceedings, Ninvalle noted that it was a historic moment for Guyana, since it was the most gold medals per capita captured by a team from these shores.Ninvalle reminded those present that it was a very difficult task to get sponsorship for the 11-member team plus officials to participate in the tournament.Best Boxer of the second CDBT Christopher MooreHe noted also that GOA president Juman-Yassin has a special place in his heart for the sport, having served as president of the-then Guyana Amateur Boxing Association years ago.The GBA president, who was recently re-elected unopposed said he is extremely elated with the boxers’ performance which tells him Guyana is going in the right direction where boxing is concerned and stated that once given the support things can only get better for the sport locally.He said winning the Caribbean championship is the first step but there are many more steps to be made. The next he said is dominating the Latin American region, then the World Championships and finally, the Olympics.GOA president K. Juman-Yassin in his remarks also lauded the performance of the boxers stating that he is heartened by the results and is glad to see a young bunch of boxers performing so outstandingly. “Once you continue in this vein, we (GOA) and the government will ensure you have funds to participate in different championships,” Juman-Yassin assured.Yassin declared that the GOA stands ready to revisit a system of providing stipends to selected boxers and called on Ninvalle to urgently commence discussions on the way forward.The GOA boss further stated that the GOA would like to do more for the sport by making the boxers full-time boxers, but there are certain things that will have to be worked out, since some of the boxers are still attending school while others are working with different organisations and companies.Juman-Yassin had a special word of congratulation for the team’s head coach, Sebert Blake, who was the last Guyanese coach to attend a coaching programme through the GOA and the Olympic Solidarity Movement which was held in Hungary some years ago.After bagging four gold medals during the first four nights of competition in the CDBT in Barbados, the Guyanese boxers added a further five gold medals and a silver to their overall tally, assuring them of overall championships honours.On Saturday evening Christopher Moore contested the lightweight division of the Youth Division and secured a 3-0 points verdict against Grenade’s Nelson Cyrus and Joel Williamson, fighting in the final of the lightweight division in the Elite category, forced the referee to stop his contest against Jamaica’s Ricardo Carter, to win gold medals.Guyana’s lightweight Colin Lewis contesting the light welterweight division of the Elite category caused the referee to stop his fight against Barbados’ Derek Hymer during the first round.Desmond Amsterdam then added another gold medal to Guyana’s tally as he secured a third round TKO win over Jamaica’s Jonathan Hanson in their middleweight contest of the Elite category.Guyana’s Elite category super heavyweight boxer Jason Bakker then crowned the evening off with a 3-0 points win against Jamaica’s Ricardo Brown.But Guyana’s other Elite boxer, Kevin Allicock, who was on show on Saturday and from whom much was anticipated had to settle for a silver medal, as he lost on points in the second round in his flyweight contest against Barbados’ Jabali Breedy.last_img read more
