“The NOC is fully committed to training and this at all levels of the organization. We have trained our coaches and athletes as well as sports administrators. We must also take care of our administrative staff. It is a matter of professionalizing the operations of the NOC to better serve our affiliates and so develops sports in St Vincent and the Grenadines,” Joseph said.

James only recently returned from a two-week programme at the International Olympic Academy (IOA) in Olympia, Greece. There she learnt about the origins and history of the International Olympic Committee and Olympic Movement.
