Eighty-One primary schools throughout Port-of- Spain and Environs will bid for athletic supremacy at the Port-of- Spain Rotary Games on Friday at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo from 9 am.

The schools will come from eight zones, including last year’s champions West “B”. The champs will have to withstand the challenge of Central “A”, and East A, winners of the Rotary Games seven years ago.

This year’s Games, titled “YEAR FOR LOVE”, will mark Port-of-Spain and Environs District’s dominance at the National Primary Schools Track and Field Championships. The district will honour athletes and administrators who have served the Port-of-Spain region for the past two decades. The Honourees this year include Gregory Johnson and Abeyola Akowe.

Athletes who have won titles at the Games and have gone on to represent the country have been invited to attend.

The West “B” Zone, powered by Diamond Vale Government, Diego Martin Government and La Puerta Government, will be seeking to register another lien on the Rotary Challenge Trophy. But arch-rivals West “A” will be aiming to upstage last year’s winners.

The West “A” athletes scored their fourth win at the Games in 2006, and will be pinning their hopes on Maraval RC, as well as Carenage Boys’ and Girls and the powerful Dunross Prep, in an effort to better West “B”. The perennial champions West “B” have captured the title 24 times in the past 28 years.

Among the athletes expected to shine are West Zones, Tyrell Springer, Jeneice Burton, Kaleigh Forde, Dylan Woodruffe, Central’s, Janika 'Hulk" Jordan, Kianna Llewellyn, Kyrell Thomas and Jordan Noel, East’sTahir Chance and Ryan Radillant and North’s Kareem King, Brent Rodriguez and Joanna Fraser.
