Prime Minister Rowley hosts the 2016 Trinidad and Tobago Olympics Team

I am here this evening, particularly proud to be having this opportunity to host this reception to say, “Thank you for representing out country.” Not just in Rio but wherever you do it and every day.

I am a citizen first before I am Prime Minister and I am particularly proud of our country’s record in sport in general. As a very small country that we can hardly find on a world map we have a tremendous legacy of which we can all be proud. That legacy goes way back before Rodney Wilkes but of course if you are as young as I am you would remember the excitement.
