Antigua and Barbuda is proud to announce its participation in the upcoming 2023 Pan American Games, set to take place in Santiago, Chile from October 20th to November 5th.

This will mark the third team of athletes representing Antigua and Barbuda this year, following their successful participation in the CAC Games held in El Salvador and the Commonwealth Youth Games held in Trinidad and Tobago.

The Antigua and Barbuda National Olympic Committee (ABNOC) has carefully selected a team of eight talented athletes who will compete across various sports disciplines.

Leading the delegation as Chef de Mission is Thomas Greenaway, a highly experienced individual with a deep understanding of international sporting events.

Amongst the notable athletes representing Antigua and Barbuda is Tiger Tyson, who won gold at the 2022 CAC Beach Games.

Tiger will proudly carry his nation’s flag as he competes in the Kiteboarding competition scheduled from October 28th to November 5th.

With his exceptional skills, Tiger stands an excellent chance of winning gold and securing qualification for the prestigious 2024 Paris Olympics.

His fiercest competition is expected to come from a sailor representing Team USA.

In boxing, Alston Ryan aims to surpass his previous achievement of winning bronze at the Panam Games back in 2019. Competing in the highly competitive 63.5kg category, Alston will be joined by Yakita Aska who will compete fiercely for victory in the challenging 92kg category.

The team’s management responsibilities fall under Rolston Ryan’s capable hands.

Both boxers are determined not only to excel at these games but also to secure spots for participation in future events like the Paris Olympics scheduled for 2024.

Representing Antigua and Barbuda in swimming are Stefano Mitchell and Noah Mascol-Gomes.

These talented swimmers will showcase their skills across various swimming distances during the events scheduled from October 21 to October 25.
