Havana, December 6 (JIT) - Belize's Minister of Youth, Sports and Transport, Gilroy Usher, arrived on Monday in Cuba - at the head of a delegation - with the purpose of strengthening exchanges in the sports field.

Upon his arrival at José Martí International Airport, he was received by the vice-president of Inder, Omar Venegas, who welcomed him on behalf of the Cuban sports movement and people.

Lou-Anne Burns Martínez, ambassador of Belize in our country, also came to the capital's air terminal.

"We have come to seek Cuba's support in everything related to the anti-doping laboratory; also to learn how the teams and athletes prepare, since we Belizeans have little experience in these activities and we want to learn from you," said the distinguished guest.

During his stay in the Greater of the Antilles, which will end next Thursday, Usher and his companions will visit the National Volleyball School and the Anti-Doping Laboratory of Havana, where a contract will be signed to receive the services of this prestigious institution.

They will also visit the Escuela Superior de Formación de Atletas de Alto Rendimiento Giraldo Córdova Cardín and will hold working meetings with authorities of the Cuban sports organization, among other activities.

The delegation also includes Linsford Castillo, president of the National Sports Council of Belize (NSCB); Ian Cal, director of the NSCB; Gary Ayuso, director of the National Anti-Doping Organization of Belize; and Rochelle Cabral, director of laboratory services (toxicology and forensic services) of the Caribbean country.
