Managua, Aug 20 (Prensa Latina) Nicaragua will receive support from Cuba to organize the 11th Central American Games, which this Central American country will host for the first time from December 3-17, official sources said on Sunday.
‘The fundamental objective is to accompany Nicaragua in the organization of these Games,’ Gladys Becquer, vice president of the Cuban Institute of Sports, Physical Education and Recreation (INDER), said during a four-day visit made by a delegation from that institution to Managua.
The official noted that both countries will join efforts so that Nicaragua can give a brilliant performance in this sporting event and can further enhance the achievements of the Sandinista Revolution in recent years.
For his part, Managua Mayor Fidel Moreno stressed that the two nations will further strengthen their ties of brotherhood with the signing of a much larger cooperation agreement on Monday.
Among other initiatives, the Managua 2017 organizing committee expects to receive Cuba’s assistance in anti-doping control to ensure clean games, in addition to having an institute of sports medicine in a near future.
Nicaragua has prepared about 40 sports facilities, with the construction of new areas and the restoration of others, to hold this multi-sports event.
