Focus on ‘Winning Well’ Leads to Trinbago Recognition


The Australian Trinbago 2023 Commonwealth Youth Games Team have been recognised for the ‘Win Well’ Award, with the finalists for the 2023 AIS Sport Performance Awards (ASPAs) announced today.

The awards, which are the country’s only national awards that celebrate the best and brightest across both able and para sport, recognise the sporting achievements accomplished throughout 2023.

The Trinbago Team, which came together at the recent Commonwealth Youth Games held in August on the dual islands of Trinidad and Tobago, finished top of the medal tally with 64 medals, including 26 gold.

The team are finalists in the inaugural Win Well Award, which looks to embody the vision of Australia’s 2032+ High Performance Sport Strategy: Inspiring Australians through our united pursuit to win well.

Win Well acknowledges the importance of success and rewarding high performance and highlights wellbeing as the foundation of sustainable success.

A key focus of the Trinbago Team included the holistic development of team members, with the exposure of competing in the green and gold at a major international multi-sport event a key component, as well as developing the necessary mental and emotional skills to compete on the world stage.

The 2023 ASPAs will be held in Melbourne on November 29 and will be hosted by Paralympian Ellie Cole and Olympian Matthew Denny.

Several Commonwealth Games team members and alumni have been nominated across the categories, and we wish all finalists the best of luck!
