GT&T makes good on their promise to the GAPF
The Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company has yet again maintained their reputation of being a good Corporate citizen by making good on a promise to the Guyana Amateur Powerlifting Federation.
The GAPF for the first time in its history hosted the Caribbean Islands Powerlifting Championships at the Princess Hotel and it was a resounding success with the home team athletes cracking a number of records as they won a number of gold, silver and bronze medals.
Guyana also for the first time won the overall team championship. GT&T had made a commitment to assist with the expenses related to making the championships a success and recently handed over a cheque to the Federation at its Head Office, Brickdam.
Handing over the cheque to CAC Gold Medalist Winston Stoby was Marketing Officer Abena Fung who stated that GT&T was pleased with the performances of the Guyanese athletes at the Caribbean Championships and at CAC.
“We are particularly happy with the manner in which the Federation is being governed and the returns you have been enjoying based on the performances of the athletes locally and regionally. Like GT&T you are all home grown champions, we applaud you and certainly, you will continue to receive our support.”
Stoby expressed thanks to Fung and GT&T for their commitment towards the continued development of Powerlifting.
Powerlifters are currently preparing for the Senior National Championships set for later this month at the Critchlow Labour College.
