GOA PRESIDENT QUESTIONS CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING ALLICOCK’S ILLNESS AT SA GAMES

President of the Guyana Olympic Association, K.A. Juman-Yassin, is questioning the circumstances surrounding the illness suffered by boxer Keevin Allicock at the recently concluded South American Games in Paraguay.

The boxer, who copped a bronze at the Games, was diagnosed with Rhabdomyolysis (Rab-duh-ma-yolosis) and required immediate medical treatment.

Rhabdomyolysis (Rab-duh-ma-yolosis) is a serious medical condition that can be fatal or result in permanent disability.

Notably, the Guyana contingent did not have a Physiotherapist and that became a major talking point following the Allicock incident.

Yassin, speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, said it was communicated to him by the executives of the Olympic Association that a medical personnel did not make the trip since the deadline for submitting that name had passed.

Here’s what Yassin had to say about the incident in Paraguay.
