Grange Congratulates Reggae Boyz, Junior Athletes and Young Cricketers

The Honourable Olivia Grange, Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, has said even before the Finals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup football tournament currently being played in the United States, congratulations were in order for Jamaica’s Reggae Boys who have now reached consecutive Finals in the competition.

Miss Grange’s comment followed The Reggae Boyz’ One-nil victory over Mexico in the Gold Cup semi-finals in Pasadena, California yesterday.

“It is history making for the Reggae Boys to reach the Gold Cup finals in consecutive tournaments and it is even sweeter to triumph over Mexico who were the ones to knock us out at this stage two years ago,” the Sport Minister said.

The Minister said she was confident that the Reggae Boyz, who had called on the Minister at her offices on July 6, shortly before they departed for the US, would go on to beat the United States for their first hold on the Gold Cup.

Lauding what was another good weekend of sporting results for Jamaica and the West Indies, Minister Grange said, “We must also commend the Jamaican team to the 19th Pan-America Under-20 track and field championships which ended with Jamaica receiving seven medals, one gold, five silver and a bronze.”

She said that the West Indies Under-19 team too deserve congratulations as having completed a win in their recent Youth ODI series against South Africa, they moved on to Zimbabwe where they are currently leading that country One-nil in another ODI series.





We place people at the heart of everything we do.

We believe that culture is the great equaliser and transformer that makes ordinary men and women great.

We believe that gender equality is essential in a modern society.

We believe that an entertained person is a happy person and happy persons make happy societies.

We believe that physical activity enhances lives and sport is the medicine that heals and corrects.

Olivia Grange
