    Vuelta a Espana champion Primoz Roglic was delighted to share the podium with compatriot Tadej Pogacar in Madrid on Sunday.

    Roglic sealed his first Grand Tour title and the first for any Slovenian as he finished two minutes and 33 seconds ahead of Alejandro Valverde as the race finished in the Spanish capital.

    Pogacar, who won Saturday's penultimate stage, came in third and it thrilled both riders to see the strides made in Slovenian cycling.

    "It's a great feeling to win this race, and to be accompanied by another Slovenian is even better," Roglic said. "It's really nice for our cycling. We're writing a bit of history."

    Pogacar added: "It's incredible with lots of fans from Slovenia and my family. It's crazy to be on the podium of La Vuelta with everyone."

    Roglic was asked if he could now use his Vuelta success as a platform for further Grand Tour victories.

    "I'll only know once I finish my career," he replied. "But to win one Grand Tour is already a nice achievement."

    Trinidad and Tobago National Association of Athletics Administrations (NAAATT) president Ephraim Serrette has admitted the loss of sprinter Michelle Lee-Ayhe will be a big blow for the twin island republic heading into this month’s IAAF World Championships.

    The 27-year-old Lee-Ayhe, the reigning Commonwealth Games 100m champion, has been on suspension since August 30 after recently being sanctioned for ‘whereabouts’ violations.

    “Michelle-Lee is critical for the women’s team. So, it’s up to the rest to make the best of things. There was also the situation with Khalifa St Fort calling off her season early. They have to be prepared for all circumstances,” Serrette told Trinidad and Tobago Express.

    With Lee-Ahye absent, Kelly-Ann Baptiste will be the country's’ only representative in the women’s 100m.  Kamaria Durant and Mauricia Prieto will be on duty in the 200m.  Baptiste, will join Prieto, Reyare Thomas and Semoy Hackett for the sprint relay.

    Keshorn Walcott has also been named on a team of 15 for the World Championships. The 2012 Olympic men’s javelin champion is one of two throwers.  Portious Warren will compete in the women’s shot put and Andwuelle Wright will take part in the men’s long jump.
