Ato Boldon Stadium – Caroni, Trinidad and Tobago

Ato Boldon StadiumTrinidad and Tobago is the next stop on our virtual tour of Caribbean tracks.  There are several nice track facilities here, but the obvious choice to feature first has to be Ato Boldon Stadium, named after their sprinting superstar and 1997 world champ, Ato Boldon.  Bolden is a 4-time Olympic medalist, and competed for Trinidad & Tobago in the 1992, 1996, 2000, and 2004 Olympic Games.  He can now be seen on television as a track and field analyst, having covered everything from the NCAA’s to the Olympics, and in my opinion is the best there is on TV.  This stadium was built in 2001, and has a seating capacity of 10,000 people. And like most stadiums, it is used for soccer as well as track and field.  The offices for the National Association of Athletics Administrations of Trinidad and Tobago are located here too.  This looks like a very nice facility, and I will certainly be posting the other tracks in Trinidad and Tobago in the near future.
