Felipe Vicini, chairman of CRESO, exhorted all athletes to overcome all challenges to make their dreams a reality, setting as example the case of Jesse Owens in Berlin 80 years ago, or Félix Sánchez, just four years ago in London.
Luguelín Santos, standard-bearer in the Rio Games, cheered his fellow athletes to fight all the way to victory and thanked for the support received by all high-performance athletes sponsored by CRESO.
This is the third time that CRESO hosts official activities for the athletes, given that last year, a similar gathering took place, on occasion of the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games, as well for the London 2012 Olympics.
