It was a historic moment for the Curaçao track and field,
when during the World Championships 2019 in DOHA seven (7) track and field athletes from Curaçao competed in the Dutch national team. And during the TOKYO Olympic games 2021, six (6) Curaçao athletes, of whom three, won a silver medal.
Curaçao has a source of talents to draw on. And most of the above-mentioned talents, started on the island with the local track and field clubs and participated in the Caribbean tournaments, such as CARIFTA and CAC. These talents were discovered and were guided during their younger years. Therefor it is essential to concentrate on those activities that make a difference and have an impact. Collaboration is essential for the success of this innovative thinking.
