The Sports Minstry is looking to establish a National sports hall of fame as well as an annual awards event to celebrate the country’s top athletes past and present.

Sports Minister Hon. Osbourne Bodden said in the Legislative Assembly earlier this week he’s tasked his Ministry with making this a key project to produce over the next 18 months.

“It is my belief that the establishment of a National sports hall of fame and institution of annual sports awards will go a long way to lift the value and importance of sports in this country,” Bodden said. “It will provide an opportunity to recognise and acknowledge our founding fathers and pioneers, who have made significant contributions to sport development while also adding prestige and honour to those who strive for excellence and higher achievements every day in their various sporting disciplines. It will also cause us to take stock of where we are and where we have come from and provide a great motivator for the growth of sports.”
