More than 300 practitioners of handball, canoeing, baseball, cycling, fencing, swimming, tae kwon do, target shooting, volleyball, gymnastics, and other sports will join the 130 athletes already training in Mexico.

Seeing the group off at José Martí International Airport’s Terminal 5, First Vice President of the Councils of State and Ministers Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez reiterated the confidence the Cuban people have in the athletes.

“With decisiveness, strength and conviction, you will show your determination to make the greatest effort to retake the Central American championship title,” he said.

Joining the send-off ceremony were José Ramón Fernández, president of Cuba’s Olympic Committee, and Antonio Becali, head of INDER, the Institute of Sports, Physical Education and Recreation.
