Banjul, The Gambia, November 27, 2021 - Team Beatrice Allen has swept the polls in the 2021 Gambia National Olympic Committee Elective General Assembly held Saturday at the Olympic house.
Ms Allen beat Lamin King Colley for presidency 25 to 17 votes to become president to a Committee she once served as 1st vice president. As the elections ensued her team won the seats of 1st and 2nd vice presidents, SG, Treasurer and 3 other members.
Cognizant of the size of the task ahead of us, from promoting grassroots and community sport development, lack of standard infrastructures, the need for qualified judges, coaches and referees and adherence to the WADA Code for clean sport.
However, as a reputable NOC with a clear track record of success, we believe that every challenge will turn into an opportunity, and every weakness will turn into strength.
This is the only way to achieve our common objectives as a people living in the same community and promoting the same course.
Our team of professionals will implement our vision for the development of Gambian sports. In everything we do, our team will work
to the highest standards of professionalism, excellence and integrity she highlighted in her 10 points agenda.
By putting our efforts, hearts and minds together, and with the support of government, I am confident that we will achieve all the Ten Action Points and ensure a very bright future for Gambian sport.
Allen and the team will serve a constitutional mandate of 4 years.
