President of the International Olympic Committee Thomas Bach has urged Barbados’ future athletic stars to unite together as they strive to reach the zenith of world sports.
Bach, who is currently heading a delegation of IOC officials on the island was a special guest at the 2023 Chefette/Frosteez National Primary Schools’ Athletic Championship final this morning at the Usain Bolt Sports Complex.
While delivering remarks and executing the declaration of the official opening of the finals, Bach, a former Olympic foil fencer and gold medalist encouraged NAPSAC athletes to aim for the Olympic Games.
“ You must stay together and continue to get stronger as you follow the Olympic motto and one day I hope we will see you at the games as you try to Barbados on the map and at the top.” Bach told athletes in a very brief address. (AGB)
