Thema Williams files 11 million lawsuit against TTGF

Unknown-34National Gymnast Thema Williams has filed an 11 million dollar lawsuit against the Trinidad and Tobago Gymnastics Federation.


The lawsuit was filed at the Hall of Justice yesterday.


It is against the federation and members of the federation including President David Marquez.


Her attorney, Keith Scotland said yesterday the action is centered on economic tort, and loss of opportunity.


In April this year, the federation withdrew Ms. Williams from the Olympic games test event in Rio, Brazil.

The alternate Marisa Dick was sent in her place.


Yesterday after exiting the high court the gymnast told reporters she is disenchanted with entire incident.


Ms. Williams and Mr. Scotland is hoping for a speedy resolution of this matter.
