Beijing, China – Minister of Sports Olivia Grange has described the sports cooperation agreement which she signed in the Chinese capital yesterday as “historic and extremely beneficial”.
Minister Grange and the general manager of China Sports International Company (the state-owned sports cooperation agency), Lu Guoguang, officially signed the agreement which will see more than 400 Jamaican athletes traveling to China for training over the next three years.
Grange said it was the first time that so many Jamaican athletes would benefit directly from a bilateral sports cooperation agreement.
“Our athletes have natural abilities but need assistance and the Government of Jamaica can only do so much, and so we sincerely thank you for the current project and we believe that the benefits are of tremendous value to our athletes,” said the minister.
