San Fernando-born Hasely Crawford won the gold medal in the 100m men’s final at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. He was this country’s first Olympic gold medalist and first Olympic 100m champion from a Caribbean country. His international debut was at the 1970 Commonwealth Games where he won bronze in the 100m dash.

After the Olympics, he went on to win the 100m event at the Central American and Caribbean Championships in 1977, and represented T&T again at the 1980 and 1984 Olympics. He had a jet and the Hasely Crawford Stadium named after him, and was awarded the Trinity Cross in 1978. (photo- https://www.ttnaaa.org/assoc/history.html)

#communityvoices After serving our communities for 37 years, Ms. Susan Corbett, Director of Community Development, is retiring. She started her Community Development journey in 1984 as a Community Development Aide, going through the ranks to eventually become the Director in 2009. “I have enjoyed working with a multicultural society that is Trin-bago to promote ‘ALL THAT IS WE,’ a concept that has encompassed the wide array of rituals and expressions that defines us as a people,” said Ms. Corbett. She also offered some words of advice to those carrying out the work of building and developing communities, “Be open to learning opportunities. Keep in the know. LIVE, LAUGH, and LEARN something new every day. Do not be swayed by negativity across the spectrum. Use social media wisely”. The Ministry of Sport and Community Development wishes Ms. Corbett a happy retirement and sincerely thanks her for her years of yeoman service to our communities.
