BPTT committed to supporting the Trinidad and Tobago Paralympic Committee (TTPC) through 2020

In 2012, BP Trinidad and Tobago aligned with the BP Group’s commitment to the London Games by signing historic four year partnerships with the T&T Olympic Committee (TTOC) and the T&T Paralympic committee (TTPC). 

Through BPTT’s partnership with the TTOC and TTPC, over the past five years, the company has invested significantly to expose local coaches, athletes and Para athletes to the state of the art training techniques of the Michael Johnson Performance Academy. Further, BPTT proudly featured local Para athletes, Shanntol Ince and Carlos Greene in award winning global advertising campaigns that showcased the inspirational journeys of Para athletes around the world.
In 2017, BPTT renewed its commitment to support the Trinidad and Tobago Paralympic Committee (TTPC). The company officially extended its partnership with the Trinidad and Tobago Paralympic Committee from 2017 through the 2020 Paralympic Games to be held in Tokyo, Japan.   

“At BPTT, we believe that the human spirit is the most powerful energy of all. This energy within is powerfully showcased through Trinidad and Tobago’s Para athletes,” said Giselle Thompson, Vice President Corporate Operations, BPTT.  

Para World Championship Bronze medalist Nyoshia Cain and Para World Championship Gold medalist Akeem Stewart have also been showcased in a multi-media advertising campaign in 2018 sharing what ignited their energy within. “I am extremely proud to be a part of this global campaign and hope that those viewing the ads will be inspired to do their very best, no matter what,” said Nyoshia Cain. 

To support these Para athletes in their development journey, BPTT also supported their skills development at the Michael Johnson Performance Academy. Speaking in a video filmed at the MJP Academy in McKinny Texas, Akeem Stewart expressed appreciation to BPTT for the opportunity to further enhance his skills.  

“We hope that through this partnership and the accompanying advertising campaign that BPTT can help inspire the next generation of athletes to move past any challenge and to be the very best they can be,” said Thompson.
