Who will get the honour of carrying The Golden Arrowhead to London Olympics?
London is calling and my gut is telling me that Guyana’s contingent to the 2012 Olympics will more or less be or made up of the five athletes that have been mentioned in the dailies a short while ago.
I say this because time is of the essence and I don’t believe that there is mention by anyone to date about any other potential candidate making the team.
Of course, I would have been elated if Guyana’s contingent is larger in number, but there is indeed a process that has to be followed.
I also understand that distance sensation “Cleveland Forde” has not been selected (unofficially) and I always thought that he would finally have his birth as an Olympian at the 30th Olympiad. Again, the process has to be followed.
I was also made to understand that there is no sports personality from the respective sports fraternities of Cycling, Table Tennis and Boxing who will be making their Olympic birth and hopefully it is fair for someone from the Ministry of Sports/Guyana Olympic Association to go on record via the dailies to confirm my data transmission.
I also vividly remember that there was mention in the dailies of three cyclists who were identified for competing at the London 2012 Games and I don’t think that there was any feedback to date on that subject.
The most important question is as follows: Which athlete/sports ambassador get’s the honour of carrying The Golden Arrowhead at the opening ceremony of 30th Olympiad in London?
My pick is either Brittany Van Lang (Aquatics) or the “Judo” athlete whose name I honestly can’t remember at the moment.
To the entire contingent: Be respective and discipline sports ambassadors and please don’t abscond/defect like the boxing athletes who did so during their return trip to Guyana after competing at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in India.
