Fidel Castro Visited by Olympic Official

HAVANA – Fidel Castro met with Kuwait’s Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah, head of the Association of National Olympic Committees, Cuban official media reported Tuesday.

Photos of Castro, clad in a warm-up jacket, chatting and exchanging gifts with Al-Sabah were featured in official dailies Granma and Juventud Rebelde.

Also seen are the former president’s wife, Delia Soto del Valle, and son, Antonio Castro, who is vice president of the Cuban Baseball Federation.

Al-Sabah arrived Sunday and was greeted at Havana’s Jose Marti International Airport by Cuban Olympic Committee chair Jose Ramon Fernandez and the director of the National Sports and Recreation Institute, Antonio Becali, state news agency ACN said.

His visit has included talks with Cuban sports officials and visits to facilities in greater Havana, among them the Anti-Doping Laboratory and Latinoamericano Stadium.

Fidel Castro, who turns 90 in August, made a rare public appearance on April 19 at the closing session of the 7th congress of the Cuban Communist Party.

The leader of the 1959 revolution stepped down in July 2006 due to a grave illness, handing over power to younger brother Raul Castro, who remains at the helm.
