Praia, Nov 29 (Inforpress) – The mayor of Praia, Óscar Santos, said that investing in creating conditions for children to play sports is a guarantee of good results in the future.
Óscar Santos made these statements Thursday during the delivery of a set of sports materials to the Praia Sports Initiation Schools, as part of the celebrations of the month of sport.
“We don’t just make infrastructures, just fields. We also give what schools need most which are the equipment, the means to training,” said the Mayor, advocating that investing in children means that they will have a path and when they are adults, they will be athletes with quality.
Óscar Santos also defended the creation of more competition between the schools, in order to emerge outstanding athletes who are able to represent Cabo Verde.
“In 10 or 15 years you will see the result of the work done. When they receive all this equipment they are happier, it is normal because more equipment allows them to train better, especially individual sport,” he added.
