SPORTS

Cuba competes strongly with - and often outperforms - sports teams from around the world gaining Olympic medals regularly in boxing, baseball and volleyball.

Baseball is the national game and national obsession, played on the street and throughout the country with leagues organised at national and provincial levels.

It is not unusual to see children and adults playing chess in town squares throughout the country, following the example of Che Guevara who was a keen player.

Cuba's encouragement of natural talent and free training for sportsmen and women has led to world famous names such as record setting triple jumper, Eliecer Urrutía, high jumper Javier Sotomayor, boxers Mario Kinderlan and Teófilo Stevenson, and the only runner to have achieved a gold in both the 400m and 800m, Alberto Juantorena (White Lightning).
