PASO President Visits Barbados Olympic Centre

Dr. Julio Maglione, President of the Pan American Sports Organization, recently paid a courtesy call on BOA President, Steve Stoute and toured the Barbados Olympic Museum. Dr. Maglione, who is also the President of the International Swimming Federation, was in Barbados to attend a General Assembly of the Central American and Caribbean Aquatics Association.

Dr. Maglione was accompanied by Mr. Andrew Kirby, President and Mr. Anthony Selby, Secretary of the Barbados Amateur Swimming Association.

The President was high in praise of the Barbados Olympic Centre and also of the Barbados Amateur Swimming Association, for their ability to organize the CCCAN Swimming Championships at very short notice. In turn the BASA officials thanked BOA president Steve Stoute for the BOA’s ongoing support of aquatic sport in Barbados.

Dr. Maglione, who replaced the late Mario Vasquez Rana as President of PASO, also discussed various aspects of the upcoming Pan American Games in Toronto and mechanisms by which FINA could assist the Barbados Amateur Swimming Association to develop water polo in Barbados. He noted that Barbados had a proud history in this disicipline and would like to see Barbados’ water polo once again be prominent force within the region.
