Peter Cuffy selected for IOC coaching course

Peter Cuffy, the Barbuda track and field coach, left to attend a three-month coaching course at the Faculty of Physical Education and Sport Sciences at the Semmelweis University in Budapest, Hungary. The course in general conditioning looks at the different exercise and nutrition needs of athletes in different events.

Peter Cuffy is sponsored by the Olympic Solidarity Programme (OSP) of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which funds programmes for participants from less fortunate countries. The OSP is providing a full scholarship for Peter to include his ticket to Budapest and the university fees. The Barbuda Council is paying for Peter's ticket to Antigua and spending money.

Peter Cuffy, who is from Dominica, has been living in Barbuda for six years and is married to a Barbudan. He has coached Barbudans for competitions throughout the region, including Maverick Weatherhead, who won the 800 metres in the recent CUT Games. Unfortunately Maverick fell in the 1500 metres.

Connie Desouza, Cora Samuel, and Mitchie David will be coaching the students and adults in Peter's absence.

Peter Cuffy has promised to stay in touch with the web site while he is away. So watch this space for details of his experiences and some photographs.

Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
Free the people and let them move in liberty
Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
So the struggle continue.
But while the struggle continue, I'm going to tell you.
We rastaman will set the world free...
