Kingston, 7 September 2019 - The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, has congratulated the Jamaica Senior Men’s Ice Hockey team for “a splendid display in which you created history by winning the AmeriGol-Latam Cup in Coral Springs, Florida in the USA.”

The Jamaica team beat Colombia 2-0 on penalties in the final today after the match was tied 2-2 at full time. The other teams in the competition were Venezuela, Mexico, Chile, Brazil and Argentina.

Minister Grange said:

“Jamaica continues to show the rest of the world how good we can be in sports which are not traditional to us and I really want our Senior Men’s Ice Hockey Team to know how proud we are of what they have accomplished on the ice.”

Miss Grange said the Jamaica Ice Hockey Federation must also be highly commended for the fine showing of the team.


Minister's charge

I remain hopeful because of the giftedness of the Jamaican people; their warmth and creativity; their dynamism and indomitable spirit that have resulted in excellence in all sectors.

It is by tapping into the gifts and awakening the spirit of the Jamaican people that we will, by God’s grace, re-group, re-engineer and re-open to a brighter future with Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport.

Olivia Grange
