DECISIVE LEG: Trinidad and Tobago’s Richard Thompson, second right, receives the baton from Emmanuel Callendar even as Jamaica’s Usain Bolt, centre right, urges on Asafa Powell who is already into stride, on the final leg of the men’s 4x100-metre relay at the Beijing 2008 Olympics in China on August 22, 2008. Powell crossed the finish line ahead of Thompson but, ten years later, T&T will be given the gold because Jamaica’s first leg runner Nesta Carter was doped.

It’s official.

Trinidad and Tobago earned their third gold medal ever at the Olympic Games after the Beijing Olympians’ Men’s 4 x 100 relay team of Keston Bledman, Marc Burns, Emmanuel Callendar and Richard Thompson was promoted to the top level of the rostrum, following the disqualification of Jamaica. Aaron Armstrong ran for T&T in the qualifying round.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) officially informed the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) yesterday of the promotion.
