Veteran Barbadian sports administrator Steve Stoute has received another honour, this time from Panam Sports.
Stoute and Michael Fennell of Jamaica, were honoured at the 56th Panam Sports General Assembly in Lima Peru.
Both administrators have dedicated more than 40 years to developing sports in their nations and throughout the Americas, earning worldwide recognition and numerous awards along the way.
Now, Panam Sports adds to the long-list of accolades for these respected and renowned Olympic leaders.
Since Stoute's first post as secretary general of the Barbados Olympic Association in 1996, Barbados has competed at all but one of the summer Olympic Games.
Just four years after becoming president of the BOA, Barbados won its historic first Olympic medal at the Sydney 2000 games through Obadele Thompson.
Nearly 20 years later, Stoute continues to demonstrate the true values of Olympism in every position he serves.
He founded the Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees, and he's now the president of the Central American and Caribbean Sports Organization, recently overseeing the successful Barranquilla 2018 games in Colombia.
Stoute's service to sports has been recognized across the globe, earning the Silver Crown of Merit from the Barbados government, as well as the international Olympic Committee's Olympic Order of Merit.
