Lessons to be learnt from 2012 Olympics says PM Douglas

BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS,AUGUST 22nd 2012 (CUOPM) – There are a number of lessons to be learnt from the just concluded 2012 Olympics in London.

In his weekly radio programme on Tuesday, Prime Minister the Rt. Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas congratulated all the national athletes who worked so hard and sacrificed so much over the years, and as a result, qualified to participate inthe 2012 Olympics.

Looking back on all that transpired – or did not transpire – in London, the St. Kitts and Nevis leader said there are a number of essential lessons that one can take away.

“All Kittitian and Nevisians who are competing on the global stage – in any area of endeavor – must understand and respect the rules and regulations governing their participation. Kittitians and Nevisians who travel abroad to compete – in any field – must ensure that there is ongoing, open, and constructive communication between those who will be competing and those who will be with them in a management capacity, and when Kittitians and Nevisians travel abroad to represent the Federation, they must remember that they are representing a nation. They are not there in their private capacity. And so the highest standards of decency and decorum must be maintained at all times,” said Prime Minister Douglas.
