Luanda — The secretary-general of the Angolan Olympic Committee (COA), last Thursday in Luanda recognised the commitment of women to the development of national sports.
Speaking to ANGOP, on the fringe of the second edition of the National Prize for Women in Sports", the COA official said it is impossible not to speak about the valuable contribution of women, who have been making national sports grow in different disciplines, thus elevating the country's name in this area.
"It is more than evident that women have been showing engagement in social life and sports. So we have to recognise their contributions to the development and conquests of Angola in this sector", he said.
He explained that the mentioned prize can serve as an encouragement for women to take up interest in sports and its development countrywide.
As regards the prizes, for which contested 24 women, the official explained that the competition had three categories, namely Experienced Woman, Sports Woman with Merit, and Voluntary Performance.
This event is organised by the Angolan Olympic Committee and takes place every two years, with the objective of recognising the merits or relevant contributions made to the affirmation and valorization of women in Angola.
