The vibe and energy of our region flowed last evening in Gaudeloupe as the first Caribbean Games was officially opened.

Over 800 athetles and officials from 22 countries and territories crossed the Estadio René Serge Nabajoth’s track in Les Abymes displaying their national pride.

The opening ceremony, which was produced by Jannas Michaël, included over 165 dancers and musicians.

Brian Lewis, President of the Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees (CANOC), is excited that the Caribbean Games finally became a reality given that they had to be shelved due to two pandemics.

"Against All Odds, We have created History! They said it couldn’t be done, we had to overcome two pandemics in 2009 (H1N1) and then in 2020 (COVID-19) but through it all we stood on the shoulders of our ancestors and showed that unity is our strength and strength is our unity," Lewis remarked in his speech as he declared the games open.
