Badminton aid pledge
BARBADOS COULD BECOME a Pan American training centre if two candidates for leadership positions in upcoming Badminton World Federation (BWF) elections are successful.
That possibility was raised by council members Justian Suhandinata, who is vying for the post of president, and Paisan Rangsikitpho, who is aiming to retain his spot of vice-president.
The duo met journalists and representatives from the Caribbean at the Barbados Olympic Association’s Wildey headquarters on Saturday.
The countries represented were Aruba, Barbados, Curacao, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, St Lucia, Guyana, Grenada, Trinidad and Tobago and the United States.
Both Suhandinata and Rangsikitpho acknowledged that some areas of the Caribbean region needed greater help and had been neglected.
