‘Meeting Eric Milazar’

 It was a privilege and honour for me to meet Eric Milazar, one of our most successful athletes, who is a role model for the sports community. He has been our torch bearer in many international Athletics competitions and has made us as Mauritians proud. He has kindly accepted to give us a helping hand in the organisation of the first ‘UNIVERSIADE 2011’, which will now be an annual event in the calendar activities of all our tertiary institutions. I take the opportunity to wish all the participants plenty of success and above all to enjoy them.
