Sprinter Michelle-Lee Ahye - who returned from a whereabouts failure doping ban last year - has been named Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee's (TTOC) Senior Sportswoman of the Year, while cyclist Nicholas Paul was given the Senior Sportsman of the Year accolade.

Ahye, who missed out on the women's 100 metres final by 0.001sec to Britain's Daryll Neita, was recognised for her ninth-place finish in the event at a virtual awards ceremony in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last year, Ahye was given a two-year ban for an anti-doping violation relating to three missed tests in a 12-month period, dating back to April 2019.

This meant she was initially set to miss the Tokyo 2020 Olympics before it was postponed to 2021, three months after her suspension expired.

It was her fourth time winning the award after three successive triumphs between 2016 and 2018.

Paul won for the second time after claiming his first in 2019.

He also won the TTOC People's Choice Award for the third time.

Paul finished sixth in the men's sprint at Tokyo 2020, missing out on the medal races in a controversial third race against the Russian Olympic Committee's Denis Dmitriev, with the 23-year-old cut up in the final sprint, but the TTOC appeal against the result was rejected.

He also won the silver medal at the Track Cycling World Championships in the men's 1-kilometre time trial.

Paul is also the men's 200m flying world record holder.

Swimmer Nikoli Blackman won his second consecutive Junior Sportsman of the Year award while Rae-Anne Serville was named the Junior Sportswoman of the Year.

West Indies senior women's vice-captain Anisa Mohammed took the Future is Female award and heptathlete and long jumper Tyra Gittens was named the TTOC Sports Personality of the Year.
