Dr Anthony exhorts young swimmers to balance sport and academics
Dr. Frank Anthony, Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport in his feature address at the closing ceremony of the National Sports Commission Swimming Summer camp yesterday said that it was important for today’s youths to balance academics and sports. “Many students focus on academics as you see from the CXC results but
it is important to balance sports and academics,” he said whilst adding that he was elated with the success of the programme.
The programme, which commenced July 8 and concluded on Monday at Colgrain House, Camp Street, attracted 138 students who were under the guidance of Cuban Coach, Isabella Couso Fals and five local coaches.
Dr Anthony pleaded with the parents to lead by example by living healthy lifestyles, exercising for at least 30 minutes each day.
