St. Kitts and Nevis Olympic Committee Elects New President

Basseterre, St. Kitts and Nevis, June 7, 2024 — The St. Kitts and Nevis Olympic Committee
(SKNOC) convened a brief yet meaningful General Assembly last night, June 6, 2024, to elect a
new president following the passing of former President Alphonso Bridgewater.
The nomination process yielded one candidate, Mr. Dennis ‘Freddie’ Knight, who has served as
Vice President of the SKNOC for many years under the leadership of the late President
Bridgewater. With no other nominations, Mr. Knight was declared the new President of the
SKNOC.


In his acceptance speech, President Knight emphasized his commitment to advancing the
organization and fostering deeper discussions on discovering new pathways. He stated, “What
has been established by Mr. Bridgewater and the teams that he has led has been very significant
in the progress of sport. Not only sports within the Olympic Committee, but sport in general in
St. Kitts and Nevis.”
President Knight further highlighted his vision for the future, saying, “I see one of the most
important jobs that I have to do as president is to oversee that transition from the old way and
what we’re doing now into a new way and the structure that we take on international sport. I look
forward to asking some of you, and you agreeing, to work on some commissions so that all the
work isn’t left up to, again, just the people that you see in front of you. And so that, in not too
long from now, there will be that change which will take us forward.”

With Mr. Knight’s acceptance of the presidency, the SKNOC now faces the task of filling the
now vacant post of Vice President. The organization looks forward to continuing its mission
under new leadership and embracing the future of sports in St. Kitts and Nevis.

The St. Kitts and Nevis Olympic Committee (SKNOC) is dedicated to the development and
promotion of Olympic sports within the federation. The SKNOC supports athletes and sports
organizations, fostering excellence and integrity in sport.
