ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Lloyd K. Black, a former Minister for Education and Culture with responsibility for Sports has ousted Dean "The Sportsman Greenaway" for the position of Secretary General of the BVI Olympic Committee (BVIOC).

The BVIOC's General Assembly and Elections were held this evening, November 7, 2012.

Mr Black received 10 votes as against 6 by Mr Greenaway, who was recently re-elected President of the BVI Athletics Association (BVIAA)

Ephraim Penn returned uncontested as President of the BVIOC.

The only other contested post was that of Treasurer and Mark Chapman secured 11 votes as against 5 by Andy Bickerton, who is the President of the BVI Football Association.

The other posts uncontested were that of 1st Vice President, held by Neville "Sheep" Smith; and 2nd Vice President, held by Roy Barry. 

The new executive committee will serve for a four-year term.

Prior to the elections, the affiliated associations present gave their reports for the year.

There was also some confusion over governance and voting rights, however, this was sorted out prior to the elections.

    The change of Secretary General may be very detrimental to the international relationship of the BVI. During the Dean Greenaway years The BVI became high profile with many international articles appearing in all media. The BVI had more TV and Radio exposure for the London games than any other smaller team. All this free publicity supporting the BVI as a wonderful location can be attributed to Dean the Sportsman Greenaway.

    I don't think this is a wise move because there are some questionable oil dealings that may make this move back fire on the reputation of the entire BVI. Please relook this.
