MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - Jul 19, 2017) - Caribbean viewers will have a front row seat to watch the best young athletes from across the Commonwealth in action at the 2017 Commonwealth Youth Games, as Flow Sports, the Home of Sports in the Caribbean, airs 8 hours of live coverage each day, from July 19 to 23rd.
The largest-ever edition of the Commonwealth Youth Games will be hosted this year in The Bahamas and presented by the Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC).

We are truly proud of this development as it gives our talented young regional athletes significantly more exposure while allowing their families, friends and fans the opportunity to see them in action as they compete on the world stage. This will no doubt delight Caribbean people in the diaspora who wish to catch up on the action of our up and coming star athletes."
