SPORTING WORLD MOURNING THE LOSS OF TWO SPORTING LEADERS

Sir-Ali

First the longest serving Bahamas Olympic Association President Sir. Arlington Butler and Treasurer of The Bahamas Cycling Federation Keith Lloyd. Sir Arlington Butler, former speaker of the House of Assembly and former Bahamas ambassador to the United States, passed away on November 9th at the age of 79. . He was involved in the administration of sports in The Bahamas for more than 50 years and was a past president of the Bahamas Olympic Association (which became the Bahamas Olympic Committee). In 1996, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth, and received many awards as the president of the B.O.A, Butler also enjoyed some sterling moments from our athletes, including Frank Rutherford when he won the first Olympic athletic medal with his bronze at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain and when the Golden Girls team of Savetheda Fynes, Chandra Sturrup, Pauline Davis, Debbie Ferguson and Eldece Clarke captured the gold in the women's 4 x 100 metre relay at the 2000 Olympics in Sidney, Australia. Sir Ali was known as a revered sports administrator in the Caribbean and the BOC honored him a few years ago at Government House.

Lloyd was the serving treasurer of the Bahamas cycling Federation and as he celebrated his 50th birthday on Friday November 10th, Lloyd died at home of an apparent heart attack. Lloyd made his debut into the sport as a competitor from 1983 when he went on to win the interschool cycling championships in 1985. He was the director of the recent Commonwealth Youth Games, which was very successful. It was the biggest sporting event ever held in this country and Keith Lloyd was the driving force behind the cycling aspect of it.
