According to BBBFF President, Stanley Moody, Belize had been unable to place in previous competitions.  Despite the lack of funding, however, the trio has performed well.  Moody says that there have been expressions of interest where donations to the federation are concerned.

“It has been several years since Belize has gotten a medal at the Central American Games.  Several years, yes.  Last year it was in Costa Rica and again no medals.  Prior to that there were no medals and a few months, maybe about five months ago, Guatemala which is a similar type of competition and we did not place.  So we came back with no medals, no trophies. Funding, we do no funding because we have limited resources so it’s more or less we inspire them, you know.  We try to let them know that sometime in the near future we’ll be able to supply them with supplements so they enhance their weight gain and their strengths, right.  But currently that’s about it.  Now that we’ve taken over, like Mr. Myvette said, the federation gym we’ll be using funds from that to try to provide those supplements and hopefully get additional equipment.  We’ve had several people who’ve said that they are willing to donate equipment to the federation gym.  So hopefully, once that happens we’ll be able to move forward.”

 

At the conclusion of the championship Belize won five medals, including one gold, two silver, as well as a pair of bronze medals.
