Tennis Jamaica distances itself from controversy at Junior Pan Am Games

With the Jamaica Olympic Association (JOA) remaining tight lipped about the circumstances surrounding the non-participation of national player John Chin at the Junior Pan American Games in Colombia last month, Tennis Jamaica has sought to clear the air.

Radio Jamaica Sports understands that Tennis Jamaica only made the travel bookings for the player on the instruction of the JOA.

Radio Jamaica Sports reached out to president Christopher Samuda and Sectretary General Ryan Foster for a reaction from the JOA but calls to their cell phones went unanswered.

When Radio Jamaica Sports reached out to parents of the player, Camille and Joseph Chin, calls were unanswered and messages were read without replies.

In the meantime, a Gleaner report earlier this week also indicated that Chin was not able to participate in his event as he was not informed by the JOA delegation of the day and time of his match. Jamaica qualified for 10 sports at the Junior Pan Am Games, but  participated in nine disciplines.
