Barbados captured a record 19 medals, way above the eight they collected at both the 1998 Games in Maracaibo, Venezuela, and the 2002 meet in El Salvador.

Barbados Road Hockey League.
Melnyck HAS NO GROUSE WITH BTC. Eugene Melnyck's love for horseracing has not diminished and neither has his love for this island and the Sandy Lane Gold Cup. The reason why none of his animals has been listed to run in this year's pretigious horse race is that he just does not believe he has a quality animal to win the event. He does not have a grouse with the local authorities, but the lawsuit which surrounds his Kathir being stripped of the 2004 Sandy Lane Gold Cup remains. Yesterday, Melnyck and Canada's High Commissioner to Barbados, Michael Welsh, were honorary captains for a commemorative game showcasing the success of the Barbados Road Hockey League. Here, players compete in yesterday's exhibition hockey game that was played at the Commission's headquarters in Bishop's Court's Hill.
