The Honourable Anil Roberts extended condolences to family of Akeem Adams following his passing earlier today. Minister Roberts noted that is always difficult when a parent loses a son or daughter but it was especially difficult in this case since this proud young national taken in his prime. “As a father I cannot begin to imagine the grief and despair his family is feeling in these difficult moments, Akeem was a talented young man who dedicated his life and career to the sport he loved. He stood as an example to many on how fully utilise all the gifts and talents bestowed on him by the Creator. He even faced his final challenge with an optimistic spirit and kept up the fight, right until the end. The people of Trinidad and Tobago lost one their talented sons but I have no doubt that his legacy will certainly live on in our hearts and our minds. On behalf of the team at the Ministry of Sport and the Sports Company I offer my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Akeem Adams.
