8/2/2013 11:57:54 AM
The Bahamas Olympic Committee has been recognised as an official member of the International University Sports Federation (FISU) at a meeting of the FISU governing body in Kazan, Russia early in July.
In FISU, The Bahamas Olympic Committee will function as the National University Sports Federation of The Bahamas, which will be chaired by Wellington Miller with Romell Knowles as Secretary General and will now represent all interests of FISU in The Bahamas. The National University Sports Federation of The Bahamas becomes the only body affiliated to FISU representing University Sports in The Bahamas.
Mr. Miller, who is also president of The Bahamas Olympic Committee noted that the move would further facilitate the exposure of Bahamian university sportsmen and women in the world of international university sporting competition.
Mr. Knowles, the Secretary General of The Bahamas Olympic Committee who also serves as the National University Sports Federation of The Bahamas Secretary General, said that the move will give Colleges here the opportunity to promote fitness, athletics and competitive sport to enhance the experience of their student body.
