Trinidad and Tobago Olympic and Paralympic Teams do more than just represent our twin-island republic on sport’s biggest stage—they inspire achievement and pride in all Trinbagonians around the world. Through their stories of trial and triumph, TeamTTO athletes show us what is possible and  what it means to pursue a dream.

Your support not only helps Team TTO athletes pursue their Olympic dream, but their every day pursuit of excellence.

It takes discipline, dedication, determination and talent to represent Trinidad and Tobago at the highest level in sport. Our athletes have that and more but without financial resources and support, they will struggle to achieve their full potential.

The Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) is participating in the Trinidad and Tobago International Marathon to raise funds for the TTOC athlete welfare and preparation fund.

All monies raised will be used to support our athletes as they seek to fulfil the TeamTTO 10 golds24 Team objective. Help our athletes live the dream and inspire a nation.
