The National Olympic Committee in St. Vincent and the Grenadines has received two medical kits to assist them in the Cricket World Cup matches that are currently taking place in St. Vincent.

Kathryn Dunlop, the Canadian Director to the Caribbean Development Bank highlighted the fact that although the kits came in time for the warm up matches here in St. Vincent they can be used when there are other sporting activities that are taking place in the country.

The kits, which are estimated to cost EC $2000 are being used by Canadian practitioners and allow medical practitioners to deliver quick support to players while they are on the field.

According to the President of the National Olympic Committee, Trevor Bailey, the kits will be used to assist with sports medicine all across the country.

The kits were donated on Thursday March 1 at Olympic House.
