A 50-man team, including athletes and officials, will be representing Guyana in
nine of 36 sport disciplines at this year’s Central America and Caribbean (CAC) Games, which is set to run from November 14–30 in Veracruz, Mexico.
The Guyana Olympic Association (GOA) announced the national contingent at a press briefing at Olympic House. Guyana will be represented in athletics, cycling, squash, table tennis, hockey, swimming, judo, taekwondo and badminton.
Deion Nurse was named as Chef-de-Mission. Hockey is fielding the largest team with 16 athletes and three officials in the Women’s category; officials for the hockey team are Phillip Fernandes as Coach and Devin Hooper and Peter DeGroot.
“This is a very exciting opportunity for Hockey. Our ladies have been succeeding to the point where they are now ranked high enough to be easily included in this year’s (CAC) team, and I’m excited about that,” Fernandes told reporters on Thursday.
Ashley DeGroot, who will also be participating in the squash tournament, is on the Hockey team as well. Other squash players include Sunil Seth and Alexander Arjoon, who both represented Guyana at the Commonwealth Games earlier this year. Jason-Ray Khalil, a four-time Junior Caribbean Champion, Mary Fung-a-Fat, and Ashley Khalil are also among the Squash players. Ramon Chan-A-Sue is Squash Coach.
The Athletics Association of Guyana (AAG) has selected a four-man all male team, including Olympian Winston George and overseas-based Guyanese athletes, Stephan James, Adam Harris, and Jeremy Bascom. Mark Scott has been named Coach.
Table Tennis will also field a four member team, consisting Chelsea Edghill, Natalie Cummings, Trenace Lowe, and Akecia Nedd, while Idi Lewis is Coach.
The two swimmers are Hannibal Gaskin and Britany van Lange; the cyclists are Geron Williams and Raynauth Jeffrey; the taekwondo athletes are Kenrick Lorrimer and Jibreel Malik; those that will represent badminton are Narayan Ramdhani and Jonathan Mangru, while Judo will have a single athlete in Delroy Murphy, who Coach Raoul Archer, will accompany.
