Olympic Committee of Equatorial Guinea (COGE) Meets for 2012 Olympics Review

The directors and board of the COGE (the Olympic Committee of Equatorial Guinea), led by its chairman, Manuel Sabino Asumu Kawan, met last week for the first time after the London Olympics. Among the issues at hand was the donation of computer equipment to the National Sports Federation, whose funds come from the aid of Olympic Solidarity, which organises assistance for National Olympic Committees (NOCs).

The COGE reached financial stability earlier this year, thanks to the recovery of international subsidies that were suspended for four years due to the global economic crisis.
