Sal / 2019: “We promise and we fulfill, the games are a success already” – Filomena Fortes

Santa Maria, Sal, Jun 18 (Inforpress) – The chair of the Organizing Committee of the African Beach Games (COJAP), Filomena Fortes, expressed her satisfaction today at the way the event unfolds and we can already speak of success”.

“The most important thing that we have promised and fulfilled in terms of organization, the Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (ACNOA) asked Cabo Verde to do the first African Beach Games and to play the best games, and we did our part”, she confirmed, so “Cabo Verde can feel proud because it is making history”.

The COJAP president expresses her joy because Cabo Verde has shown to have achieved in the first half of the competition some medals, among them one of gold, because as she considered, to receive an event of this magnitude and to have no medal “would not be good”.

Filomena Fortes also stated that the country is “showing the world” that it is already capable of organizing major events and in this particular case of the African Beach Games, neither the scarce time (one year) to organize them nor the meager human resources beings at the disposal were obstacles.
