Chinese coaches arrive in Jamaica

The first set of coaches being provided to Jamaica by the People’s Republic of China for seven sports arrived in Kingston on Thursday.

The coaches are part of a three-year technical agreement signed between the two countries last year and will be aiding in several sports including swimming, gymnastics, and Badminton.

Sport Minister Olivia Grange, in her message delivered by Permanent Secretary Denzil Thorpe, said Jamaica intends to take full advantage of the project knowing that the athletes as well as the coaches and teachers will benefit through transfer of knowledge.

The coaches will spend a month in Jamaica and the agreement also calls for 100 of the athletes in the program and their local coaches to go to China mid-year.
