KREYOL: Haiti Sport - 88 lane pase depi Haiti genyen yon Médaille Olympique... 88 lane... Yon Haitian vle chanje sa... Asnage Castelly se yon lutteur, misye pwal Lutter pou Haiti nan Jeux Olympiques Rio 2016 yo. Li vle pote medaille la bay Haiti... Kisa ou panse de sa???

Representing Haiti in the sport of wrestling at the Olympics was no easy task for Asnage Castelly, according to an article on NPR, wrestling is not a sport that really practiced in Haiti and the Haitian authorities were not even interested. It took a lot of convincing, Asnage said.

The Rio Olympic Games in Brazil begins Friday, August 5 2016 and ends on Sunday, August 21.

Best of luck to you Asnage Castelly, bring home the Gold medal will you???

What do you think about that?
