Haiti - Politic : The new Minister of Sports a field man
Friday, 3 days after his inspection visit of the Jean Marie Vincent Park at the Pont Rouge, whose condition was deemed disastrous by Edwing Charles, the new Minister of Youth and Sports who intends to act to rehabilitate the football field, continued its tour of inventory of sports facilities in the country by visiting the Sport Center for Hope (Canaan, Croix-des-Bouquets).

Welcomed by Dr. Hans Larsen, President of the Haitian Olympic Committee (COH) and Barbara Schweizer, the Program Manager of the Center, the Minister Charles visited the various facilities of the center, observed athletes in training and informed about the mission, the operation of this Olympic center made available to the youth of Canaan, Jerusalem, Cité Soleil and the athletes of national sports federations and associations.

"The Sport for Hope Center is an asset for young people," said the Minister, who congratulated the leaders of the COH and the Center for their commitment to providing young people with the support they need to flourish.

During the visit, the Minister met and encouraged Judge Karel Altidor, a 400m specialist, one of the athletes who will defend Haiti's colors at the Youth Olympic Games from 2 to 26 October in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

According to Minister Charles, we must motivate the young athletes who will represent us in international sports competitions and provide them with the support of the authorities and equip the federations for the development of their respective sports disciplines throughout the national territory.

Next week, Minister Charles plans to meet with the country's sports federations and associations to continue to gather the data needed to act effectively.
