Jaguars bestowed with Gilmore Henkson trophy

Goleador Woodrow West and midfielder Ian Gaynair, star players on the Belize Jaguars, were today bestowed with the Gilmore Henkson Fair Play Trophy for their honesty and patriotism during their participation in CONCACAF’s Gold Cup 2013.  The pair blew the whistle on a potential match fixer, who offered them thousands of Euros to throw their inaugural match against the United States in Portland, Oregon.  Their character, according to a release from the Belize Olympic and Commonwealth Games Association, exemplifies the aims and objectives of the International Olympic Committee.  Presenting them with the award was Governor General, Sir Colville Young.

“We did not win but we excelled in sportsmanship and even if we did not win I want to remind you that every evening the sun goes down but the next morning it rises again.

 

The Gilmore Henkson Trophy was established some years ago by the Belize Olympic Committee in memory of Gilmore Henkson.
