Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport Olivia Grange has congratulated the Jamaica Under-23 Netball team for coming out winners at the first staging of the Caribbean Games.

The Caribbean Games, organised by the Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees (CANOC), took place over five days in Guadeloupe recently and, in addition to netball, included athletics, Three-by-Three Basketball, road cycling, futsal, judo and swimming.

Said Grange: “Our Under-23 Netball team underlined once again Jamaica’s domination of regional netball, beating Trinidad and Tobago emphatically 55-21 to win the finals and gold medal.

“Well done.”

The Caribbean Games was originally intended for 2021 but was postponed until this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
