Haiti - Soccer : One good way to find Haitian Athletes

Joelle - May 28 2014, 2:28 PM

I came from the south part of Haiti.

When I am traveling from Port-au-Prince to Port-à-Piment, all day long I see children, young men playing soccer.

It is the country's passion.

I think competition between schools, villages should be encouraged.

I am pretty sure we will find great Haitian athletes this way.

They have the athlete body naturally they just need guidance and encouragement.

Manon Sannon, Henri Francillon, Philippe Vorbe, Ernst Jean-Joseph were great athletes.
