Praia, Sep 22 (Inforpress) – Cabo Verde will have in the next three months the African Athletics Development Center to be set at the National Stadium, to enhance the talent of PALOP athletes and the African sub-region, on a clear commitment of the African Athletics Confederation.
With the creation of this center, according to the president of the National Federation, Alfredo Lima, Cabo Verde will receive from the African Confederation, “everything that is technical support in terms of accreditation, specialization of technicians, so that the country can fill the huge deficit of technicians specialized in high performance training”.
