“With just one month to go, we have a dynamic and exciting sports programme and I am very much looking forward to seeing the Games come to life.
This accomplishment is one that has been many years in the making, and I would like to congratulate the Local Organising Committee and the GAISF team for their hard work in making this dream a reality.”
