San Jose – Costa Rica President Laura Chinchilla, named lawyer and professor William Corrales as the new Minister of Sport, to serve a term of two years in office.

Laura Chinchilla took office in May 2010 and has since appointed four ministers of Sport.
Goyenaga resigned in February 2011 for “personal reasons” but his work was heavily criticized by the media and some of the sports federations.
She was replaced on an interim basis by Benavides, who then gave the job to William Todd, however, this resigned last January after being embroiled in a controversy over the application of some 2,000 complimentary tickets for a charity event.
The Ministry of Sport is created by decree, so it does not have resources or an official ministry office.
