Richards to be rewarded for Indoor gold – Trinidad & Tobago Express Newspapers

World Indoor champion Jereem Richards is to benefit from the Government’s expansion of its incentive programme for athletes.

In a release, the Ministry of Sport and Community Development announced an expansion of the National Incentives and Rewards Framework.

The Ministry said on July 7 this year, Cabinet took the decision to expand the incentives framework to include the World Athletics Indoor Championships. Minister Shamfa Cudjoe indicated that Richards will be the first Trinidad and Tobago athlete to receive an incentive in this new category in recognition of his gold medal performance, which set a new championship record in the Men’s 400m at the Indoor Championships held in Belgrade, Serbia in March.

In 2018, the National Rewards and Incentives Framework was introduced to reward athletes who achieved medals at the highest levels of international competition in various respective sporting disciplines.

Athletes have benefited from this policy for medalling at the Olympics/Paralympics Games, World Cup, World Championships, Commonwealth Games, the Central American and Caribbean Games, and Special Olympic World Games.

To date, over $5.5 million has been distributed to 100 athletes by the Government of Trinidad and Tobago since the inception of the programme.
