A BP BREAKING NEWS ALERT:

Nassau, Bahamas – The 2011 Carifta Games was thrown into further doubt on Thursday night, when the Bahamas Association of Athletic Association (BAAA), decided at a meeting that they would not be hosting the event.

According to a highly placed trackalerts.com source, the Bahamas decision to not host the Games, was because with less than three months to go, they have not yet received a written commitment from North America, Central America and Caribbean (NACAC).

“Even though they have given a verbal commitment, efforts to obtain a written commitment has not be forthcoming, thus the decision to withdraw from hosting the Games,” said the source.

It is believed that Trinidad & Tobago, who had earlier distanced themselves from hosting the Games after St. Kitts and Nevis pulled out last year, may now stage the event for the over 700 Caribbean athletes.

No word from the Government has come on the matter.

  • ANYTHING TO ELEVATE OUR GREAT BAHAMAS IS MET WITH THE BROKE TALK..EXCEPT ROADS THAT WE CONSTANLY BORROW MONEY FOR..BUT WHEN THE GOVERNMENT WANTS TO SPEND THEY SURE COULD FIND IT..WE CANT AFFORD CARIFTA OR ANYTHING OF THAT NATURE AT THIS TIME..CARIFTA IS GOOD BUT WE ALL KNOW ALL THIS WILL BE IS JUST GOING TO BE ANOTHER PARTY FOR MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY..THE ATHLETES NEED IT BUT WE CANT AFFORD TO HOST

    We should not do something that we cannot afford. If the government is in fact making that deal with LIME it is a disgrace. Financial prudence and sound judgement is what Laing and his crew has preached. Elections are near and all sorts of deals are being hatched to fool the Bahamian people. We cannot afford it so tell CARICOM and CARIFTA to plan things better in the future.

    This is not a political story. The event is not going to be hosted by the BAAAs. The government has not commented on the matter. What do you want us to do? SAY NOTHING like the rest of the WUTLESS media?
