The main objective of the visit is to exchange experiences and promote a work programme, especially with children and young people, so that they are motivated to get into athletics and, therefore, will boost the two nations’ talent pools, according to Sweet. “The sport will further strengthen relations between the UK and Cuba,” she said. “Greater cooperation will boost development of the field and track in both countries in a special way,” added Attwell. The two British executives are scheduled to visit the High-Performance High School “Giraldo Cordova Cardin” and the Latin American Stadium where they will meet with Cuban athletics’ youngest talents.
