TTOC confirms Marissa Dick for Rio Olympics

The Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee has announced that gymnast Marissa Dick will be the Trinidad and Tobago representative for the Rio Olympics.

The announcement was made just before 11am at a news conference hosted by the TTOC.

TTOC President Brian lewis said the decision was made based on the International Federation of Gymnastics' confirmation of the eligibility of the athlete.

He says the TTOC has no decision but to include Dick in the team.

This decision now conclusively rules out Thema Williams from the competition.
