Sport Minister, NSC extend condolences to Edghill
Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport, Charles Ramson Jr., and the National Sports Commission (NSC) on Tuesday extended condolences to Olympian Chelsea Edghill and her family on the passing of her father, Godfrey Edghill.
In a statement, the NSC stated they are cognisant of the role the senior Edghill played in guiding Chelsea to this present juncture where she is considered one of the best table tennis players in the Caribbean, Central, and South America.
Director of Sport Steve Ninvalle has reached out to the table tennis player in relation to how the NSC can assist at this time.
The senior Edghill passed away Monday evening. He was age 62 and leaves behind a wife and three children.
Chelsea was the first Table Tennis player from Guyana to qualify for the Olympics and she competed in Tokyo, Japan.
Before heading to the Olympics, the Table Tennis player was outspoken about the financial investment her family gave her to compete for Guyana and train overseas.
Additionally, the NSC has postponed a planned dinner on Friday at the Mirage Banquet Hall for Olympians, Bodybuilders, and Powerlifters, who recently represented Guyana, as a mark of respect.
