Steve Stoute, the former President of the Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees (CANOC) has relinquished his title after 17 years.
On Sunday, Stoute stepped down after two-of the current four-year term. His vision led to the formation of the first of the Caribbean caucus of National Olympic Committees in 1999 to the official establishment of CANOC in 2003.
One of Stoute’s proudest moments is the extensive coverage given to Caribbean athletes during the most recent edition of the Summer Olympic Games held a few months ago in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Stoute’s proudest moment may well have been the extensive coverage given to Caribbean athletes during the most recent edition of the Summer Olympic Games held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, a few months ago. Never before in the history of the participation of Caribbean NOCs in the Olympic Games have the peoples of the region been able to receive such comprehensive coverage of every one of their athletes involved in competition.
He will be replaced by Trinidad and Tobago’s Brian Lewis.
