Belize Will Look Good At The Olympic Opening
From Channel 7 Belize News:
The London 2012 Olympics begin in less than 48 hours and Belize’s tiny, six-person contingent has arrived at the Olympic Village.
Our delegation has only three athletes: Kaina Martinez from the Stann Creek District who is running the 100 meter, Kenneth Medwood, a Belizean American who live sin Los Angeles who is running the 400 meter hurdles and Eddermys Sanchez, a Cuban-Belizean who is participating in the 66 kilos classification for Judo.
The Chief Of Mission is Sonny Meighan, track coach Colin Thurton, and judo coach Wellington Chee.
And while the Belize team is small, they will surely be stylish at the opening ceremony. Highly regarded British Fashion Designer, Jeff Banks has designed the outfits for the contingent. He says the Caribbean Blue Blazers with white trim were inspired by the fictional character, the Great Gatsby with a hint of a cricket umpire.
You can see the Belize contingent walk out unto the world stage in the opening ceremonies which start at 1:50 pm on Friday afternoon on Channel 7, the exclusive broadcast home of London 2012 – where you’ll be able to see full coverage of the games, presented with a Caribbean flavour.
