Carl Lewis visits FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup venue
The athletics star took a glimpse at The National Beach Soccer Arena at Malcolm Park.
The National Beach Soccer Arena at Malcolm Park welcomed a very special guest on Saturday - five days ahead of the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup - in the form of nine-time Olympic Champion Carl Lewis.
The former American sprinter, who claimed 10 silver and gold medals in total during four separate Olympic Games, visited the beach soccer facility close to Sir Sidney Poitier Bridge and was hugely impressed by what he saw.
Lewis - who also picked up nine golds during three World Championships - was eager to urge locals to check out the upcoming event, between April 27th and May 7th, highlighting the impact the sport has had, both in the region and globally.
"I think it’s amazing," he said. "I'm a big football fan and my brother played professionally, and to see how the evolution of a new sport is reaching out to the community, that’s the best thing about it and I think we can all learn from it.
"I hope a lot of people from within athletics come and watch these fast-paced, exciting games and get some ideas for our sport as well."
The action gets underway in the Bahamian capital on Thursday when Iran take on Mexico, with the opening day’s fixtures also seeing Ecuador against Senegal, Nigeria’s clash with Italy and the hosts’ first game versus Switzerland.
