Athletic coach, Anthony Isaac, has been awarded the 2010 Olympic Solidarity Coaching Scholarship, by the National Olympic Committee (NOC). The coaching course is being pursued at the internationally acclaimed Semmelweis University, Institute of Coaching and Sport Education in Budapest, Hungary at a cost of U.S $10,500.00.
At such a high cost, one would wonder where Isaac would acquire the funds.
That’s where the St. Kitts and Nevis Olympic Committee (SKNOC) steps in. According to the SKNOC president Alphonso Bridgewater, the committee has a responsibility to assist in the development of sports whether in kind or financial funding.
Also benefitting from the SKNOC funding is certified FIBA referee, Ian Liburd. Liburd left the federation to travel to Medellin, Colombia over the period October 17th to 23rd, as he too continues his quest to become an internationally renowned referee.
The SKNOC recounts with much satisfaction, its continued assistance towards Mr Liburd’s long term training. In fact, the NOC’s sense of satisfaction was further heightened when Mr Liburd was selected to officiate at the recently concluded Central American and Caribbean Games, in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico in July.
