Governor Wishes CI Olympians Well

Cayman's flag will fly in Beijing!

In a personal letter to Cayman Islands Olympic Committee (CIOC) President Don McLean, HE the Governor Stuart Jack, CVO recently expressed his support for Cayman's four Olympians.

Even as excitement was building for this week's opening of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, Mr Jack said: "I want to wish the best of luck to everyone involved with the Cayman Islands' participation. I am certain that the months and years of hard work will prove worthwhile for Cayman's four Olympians and that they impress all they meet as both professional athletes, and as ambassadors for our beautiful islands."

Mr Jack also made special mention of the Islands' two Olympic youth campers, Courtney Stafford and Joseph Jackson, stating his belief that they will "both impress and be inspired, by their experiences."

In addition the Governor praised the dedication and hard work of the CIOC, and applauded the backing given by government and other sponsors.

"I know that you, the athletes, officials and all our supporters will be flying Cayman's flag proudly in Beijing - and everyone in Cayman will be looking for our flags waving at the Olympic pool and in the Olympic Stadium!" the letter concluded.
