Marisa Dick: It's been tough dealing with all this hate from T&T

Marisa Dick, Trinidad and Tobago's representative in the gymnastic events in Rio, says it's been very hard dealing with the "hate" towards her from many in the country she went to represent.

Dick, speaking at the ESPN Studio in Rio, said, however, that the experience at the Olympics was a dream come true.

Dick was asked how she has been able to handle the controversy involving her qualification for the Olympics over Thema Williams.

Chow, Dick in action for T&T today

Two female Trinidad and Tobago athletes will be in competition at the Rio Olympics today,

First in action will be Felice Chow, competing in the Women's Scull Rowing Repechage.

Chow placed fifth in Heat 6 on Saturday in a time of 8.31.83 and the Repechage is another opportunity for her to move further in the competition.

That event was due to start at 8.30 am but was delayed to 10 am due to strong winds.

Marisa Dick is the second T&T athlete in competition.
