The islands of Trinidad and Tobago occupy a total of 5,128 sq km of space. Yet this small republic has produced over one hundred athletes. And the Sports Gallery at the National Museum attests to this. The work and dedication of these great men and women are depicted in beautiful photographs and brief biographies of their achievements. Included in the gallery are Christopher Forde, body building champion, Maria Nunes, first golfer from Trinidad to win a world title, Hasely Crawford, Ato Bolden, Brian Lara, Darrel Brown and George Bovel III. One can also be enthralled with Olympic mascots from 1972, 1976 and 1980 as well as a large photograph of the Hasely Crawford National  Stadium on‘Red Day’, that fateful day in 1989 when Trinidad lost the World Cup qualifier match to the United States of America, 1-0.
