Follow-Up: ARAWAK SPORTS FESTIVAL IN GUYANA GETS MORE SPONSORS!

Another generous person has come forward to assist in Damon Corrie’s quest for Amerindian Olympics –

Roberto Mucaro Borrero, President of the United Confederation of Taino People; and the UCTP will be sponsoring the traditional spear-throw events (similar to Javelin – but with a traditional hunting spear) and we now have an unexpected final tally of 9 sporting categories with 30 individual events.

The 2007 Ernest C. Simon Memorial Sports Festival will now encompass an unprecedented 9 days of activities for the 1,300 member Arawak community of Pakuri, and will dispense over a quarter of a million Guyana dollars in Prize Money & Trophies among the participants (bear in mind the average resident makes less than one-thousand Guyana dollars per day)

THESE ARE THE 9 SPORTS CATEGORIES:
Football – 4 events
Cricket – 4 events
Cycling (off-road) – 2 events

Traditional Running (cross country) – 6 events

Traditional Archery – 3 events

Traditional Spear-throw – 3 events

Traditional Blowpipe – 1 event

Traditional Wrestling – 3 events
Traditional Canoe Racing – 4 events
