Taking place from 4-11 August 2023, the games will feature athletes aged 14-18.”
Cudjoe said the games will highlight TT to the world. “The sporting activities will take place in two clusters, one in Couva, Trinidad and the other in Tobago, to bring a diverse perspective of the twin island country to the nations of the Commonwealth, as well as to showcase a festival of the country’s activities.”
The seven sports that will feature at the Commonwealth Youth Games are swimming (boys/girls), athletics (boys/girls), cycling (boys/girls),
