Best wishes from Cabinet
That was how Communication Minister Jamal Mohammed yesterday described the performance of swimmer George Bovell at the London Olympics.
Mohammed said the entire Cabinet was "very excited" by Bovell ability to secure a position in the swimming 50-metre freestyle event scheduled for today.
Mohammed made the statement yesterday at the post-Cabinet media conference held at the Diplomatic Centre in St Ann's.
The post-Cabinet media conference was held moments after Bovell secured his position in the swimming 50-metre freestyle.
Bovell has represented this country at the 2000, 2004 and 2008 Olympics.
He captured the country's first medal in swimming with a bronze medal in the men's 200-metre Individual Medley at the 2004 Olympics.
"Cabinet has noted with deep interest all of the activities that are taking place at the 30th Olympiad in London and we are very excited that earlier (yesterday) George Bovell III did exceeding well in his meet in the swimming pool and we wish him well in the finals," Mohammed said.
"We wish all of the other athletes all the best wishes from the people of Trinidad and Tobago as they continue to participate and do us proud at the Olympics taking place in London," Mohammed said.
