The Wider Image: Haiti's cyclists brave protests and poor roads in race for gold
Ousline Georges, 22, only started to take cycling seriously a year ago, wary of the many hurdles she faced such as the prohibitive cost of a decent bicycle and the treacherous roads in her home country of Haiti, the poorest in the Americas. This past weekend though, she became the first Haitian ever to win a medal in the Caribbean Cycling Championship, thanks to a new program created by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) that fosters the sport in small, developing nations. Cycling is not an easy sport to practice in Haiti, a country wracked by poverty, natural catastrophes and political instability. Bicycles and a good diet are too expensive for most and there are few roads that lend themselves to training given the destruction wrought by the 2010 earthquake and a scarcity of cash to build infrastructure.
