The members of the Dominica Athletic team were on Friday on their way back home, after being grounded in Trinidad on their way to the CAC Juniors in El Salvador.
According to reports reaching DNO the team left the island on Thursday (June 28) via Barbados to Trinidad and Tobago, Panama and then El Salvador.
However on arrival in Port of Spain it was discovered that only Carifta Games gold medalist Luan Gabriel had the required documents to travel to El Salvador.
An official of the athletics community here told DNO that several inquiries to Dominica on the matter were made, and attempts were made to have Luan travel with the Trinidad contingent, but that did not bear fruit.
The unscheduled Trinidad stopover meant the team had difficulty finding proper accommodation.
The team was at lunch time on Friday in Barbados and expected to arrive in Dominica at 2:00 pm on LIAT Flight 364.
DNO is following this story and will provide more information.
