The Barbados Olympic Association Inc. (BOA) recently announced the final lineup of teams and unveiled the official Commonwealth Games uniforms to be worn in Scotland, July 23 – August 4, 2014.

The contingent managed by BOA, Deputy General Secretary, Cameron Burke and assistant Gail Craig-Archer comprises 12 sports and 104 athletes and officials. The sports being represented are Athletics, Badminton, Boxing, Cycling Road, Cycling Track, Judo, Netball, Rugby Sevens, Shooting, Swimming, Table Tennis and Triathlon.

President of the Barbados Olympic Association, Steve Stoute said that BOA has done all its power to facilitate the preparation of the teams. “Coming out of the last Olympic Games the BOA took the decision that we had to provide greater intervention to the National Federations. We try not to get involved in the affairs of the Federations, their job is to prepare the athletes our job is to provide administrative help. We however realized that they needed more support. We have had a number of meetings with the Federations to find out their greatest needs and to my mind we should have one of the best prepared contingents based on the substantial investment that the BOA has made,” Stoute said.

Secretary General, Erskine Simmons said that the BOA has invested substantially in the Federations to facilitate the preparation of teams for the games. The funds were used for coaching fees, gym fees, massage therapy, nutritional supplements, travel to competitions, competition accommodations and meals, meet entry fees, ground transportation at competition and ammunition purchases for shooting.
