By Rubén Morales Iglesias: After competing along with athletes from 70 countries, Team Belize said goodbye to Birmingham 2022 at the Closing Ceremonies on Monday, August 8.
Ozzy Osbourne, UB40, and a host of others brought down the curtain on the Commonwealth Games after 11 days of competition.
Belize sent a team of 13 athletes and while they didn’t earn any medals their experience will be unforgettable.
Belize’s team was comprised of cyclists Alicia Thompson, Giovanni Lovell, Oscar Quiroz, Byron Pope, Justin Williams, Cory Williams, and Kaya Cattouse; track and field athletes Shaun Gill, Ashontie Carr, and Ashantie Carr, Hilary Gladden, and Brandon Jones; and triathlete Kian Trejo.
Cycling Federation of Belize president Orson Butler, Belize Athletics Association vice president Jaheed Smith, and Belize Triathlon Association official Giovanni Alamilla Jr. accompanied the athletes.
Head of Mission was Giovanni Alamilla Sr.
Team Belize is on their way home, though a number of them will only reach as far as the United States where they either live or study.
