BELIZE CITY, Wed. Dec. 21, 2022
It was originally scheduled for November 26, but due to a procedural oversight the AGM and elections for the Cycling Federation of Belize (CFB), where two slates were contesting positions on the executive, was postponed until a couple weeks later on December 10.
Accompanying the previous text informing of the AGM and elections, were flyers of the two contesting slates as follows:
The flyer for one slate, titled “Developing Cycling through Unity”, featured candidates, for President – Alicia Thompson, for Vice-President – Glen Flowers, for General Secretary – Alan Auil, for Treasurer – Warren Coye, and for Committee Members – Douglas Lamb, Justin Williams and Ronald Sutherland.
The other flyer declared “Pedal for Change 2022-2026”, and listed their candidates, for President – Tariq Cano, for Vice-President – Giovanni Lovell, for Secretary – Karen Vernon, for Treasurer – Troy Gabb, and for Executive Members – Kaya Cattouse, Zahir Figueroa and Yadira Argueta.
A release on the Facebook page of the Belize Olympic and Commonwealth Games Association (BOCGA) dated December 11, revealed that the Alicia Thompson-led slate was successful in their election bid. Notably among the familiar big cycling names on her executive is two-time Cross Country Champion, Justin Williams. The first female president of the CFB, Alicia Thompson, herself a 3-time Women Cross Country Champion, succeeds Orson Butler who served as president from 2018.
Below is the BOCGA release, which also appears on the CFB Facebook page:
