STANDOUT Trinidad and Tobago swimmer Dylan Carter has been chosen as Youth of the Year by the Express after a stellar 2020.

In a year in which Covid- 19 decimated many events on the international sporting calendar, Carter shone with his performances at the six-week long International Swimming League (ISL), the international swimming calendar's major event of the year.

'I am really, really happy to win this award. I hope it inspires the nation's youth to make the best out of challenging situations. Even when things don't go according to plan, you can make the best of the situation,' the 24-year-old Carter said when informed of the award by the Express yesterday.

'I want to say thank you to the Trinidad Express for giving me the award. I know they always have great appreciation for swimming and sport, so I am really happy with it.'


Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley did not attend yesterday’s sitting of the House of Representatives, causing consternation from Opposition Members because it was the day set aside for Prime Minister’s Question Time.

THE legislative road has been paved for the decriminalisation of pepper spray in Trinidad and Tobago.

The Firearms (Amendment) Bill 2021 was passed yesterday in the House of Representatives with no objection.

Health Minister Terrence Deyal­singh is unable to determine the impact of the decision to destroy 60 million doses of Johnson and Johnson (J&J) Covid-19 vaccines, at a Baltimore, Maryland, plant in the United States, on Trinidad and Tobago’s order of 800,000 J&J doses due to arrive in August.
