Sports commentator Mr. Joseph Thomas is of the view that, the Media Centre at the Windsor Park Stadium should be named after radio pioneer Mr. Jefferson Charles.

Mr. Thomas also shared his opinion on the recognition and awards given to forgotten sports men of Dominica, Mr. Cecil Larocque and Mr. Reginald St. Hayvis Shillingford by the Dominica Olympic Committee (DOC).

Mr. Thomas added, what he would like to see are changes in the attitude of sports administrators, who think everything is all about them and not the athletes.

These individuals, he said, should seek to replicate what the Dominica Olympic Committee did, when they held a special ceremony to honour two deserving individuals, who excelled in their field of sports for Dominica.

This needs to be repeated by all sports associations on a regular basis he concluded.
