King: Lift off from Summit
Minister of Sports John King is encouraging sports practitioners to view the inaugural Caribbean High Performance Summit as a push in the right direction.
“Let us see this summit as the beginning of a new regional thrust to combat our challenges within sports with a new confidence and commitment to doing the very best that we can to make a huge difference in the lives of our athletes,” he said yesterday.
The minister was addressing the opening of the two-day conference at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre in the presence of several sporting administrators such as president of the Barbados Olympic Association (BOA) Sandra Osborne, head of the Academy of Sport at the University of the West Indies Amanda Reifer, director at the BOA Ytannia Wiggins, long-standing sports administrator Kathy Harper-Hall.
