Namibian delegation impressed by Sochi Olympic Park

A 170-strong delegation from Namibia has arrived in Sochi to take part in the World Festival of Youth and Students. The delegation is headed by Minister of International Relations and Cooperation of Namibia Peya Mushelenga.

“We knew that Sochi had hosted the Winter Olympics, and the infrastructure in Olympic Park really is impressive. We are very much looking forward to the beginning of the Festival. Our delegation includes about 170 people selected by the National Youth Council of Namibia and the SWAPO Party Youth League. We have representatives from political parties, youth and religious organisations, and young leaders from different regions of the country”, said Programme Coordinator for the National Youth Council of Namibia Ileni Henguva.

The young men and women from Namibia are staying in the Karelin Centre, which is named after three-time Olympic Greco-Roman Wrestling Champion and Hero of Russia Aleksandr Karelin.

“I know who Karelin is. I recognised him from his photographs straight away. It’s great that he’s going to be one of the guests here at the Festival. We’re interested in the entire Festival programme, and planning to participate in a lot of events. At the same time, it’s important to us not just to exchange views on current issues and make new contacts, but also to tell people about Namibia and to create a good impression of our country”, Ileni Henguva remarked.
