South American Games to see representation of athletics, boxing from Guyana


Ameture Boxing[]Guyana will only have representation from the disciplines of Athletics and Boxing at this year’s South American Games.

According to President of the Guyana Olympic Association (GOA) Juman Yassin, due to financial constraints, they can only afford two disciplines.

He noted that the high cost of airfare for the event which is set for Santiago, Chile has caused a reduced member team.

Nonetheless, the six track athletes and four boxers are expected to do the country proud at their second outing at the games.

The team will be named at a later date, but the boxers are in training and will undergo a rigorous competition against Jamaica, St Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago in a goodwill championship set for February 14-16.
