CIOC opens doors to new Olympic House with $400k Pan Am grant

The Cayman Islands Olympic Committee opened the doors Thursday (17 August) to its new Olympic House, financed by $400,000 in grants from Pan American Sports.

“We are really proud to be here in the Cayman Islands to inaugurate this first Olympic House. This is part of the Strategic Plan that Pan Am Sports initiated a year ago, and we really want to congratulate President Donald McLean and Carson Ebanks for the great job they are doing here in the name of sport” said Pan Am Sports President Neven Ilic.

CIOC’s Eilidh Bridgeman says the two-unit space, located in Cayman Business Park, marks the first time they’ll own their own space since the committee’s inception in 1973, adding it will be shared with Cayman’s sports community.

“For the first time we have space for our federations to have meetings. Normally they’ll have to go other places and pay for it. It’s nice to be able to put all our memorabilia on display as well.”

Cayman’s Olympians received Olympic Certificates from the World Olympians Association (WOA) dating back to the 1976 Summer Games in Montreal.
