Politics interfered with NAOC

WILLEMSTAD - Remco Tevreden is no longer in the service of the Netherlands Antilles Olympic Committee (NAOC). This has to do with the fact that the NAOC no longer receives funds from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for the office. The board of the NAOC remains in office.

"I have spend ten and a half years working for the NAOC and I have particularly given my all for our athletes", according to Tevreden. "I do not agree with some people who say that the biggest problem in sport is the lack of funds", says the NAOC director. "I think that with some federations it has been proven that success at world level can be achieved. Essential herein are strategic plans and a professional attitude that automatically results in sponsorship".
