Chocó in the national games

Development of Athletes‍ in National ⁤Games

By José ​María Daza Sánchez

We cannot expect many positive results in the development of the participation of our‍ athletes in the National Games ⁤that are held in cities of the Coffee Region and the north of Valle del Cauca.

Choco Representation’s Performance

As of today,⁢ six days⁣ have already passed in⁢ the National Games. The Choco representation has had ⁢limited success so far, with boxing achieving a bronze medal. However, the women’s‌ handball team lost its first match and was disqualified, while the basketball team lost its first two⁤ games.

Lack⁣ of Information‍ and Support

Unfortunately, there is ‍a lack of⁤ information ⁢and support for the ⁤athletes. The journalistic representation is almost non-existent, with outdated websites and a lack of sports information. The⁢ responsibility for these shortcomings lies with the sports leaders, leagues, clubs, and the departmental administration.

Responsibility of Sports Leaders and Departmental ​Administration

The sports⁣ leaders, including leagues and clubs, must take‍ responsibility for their lack of support and preparation for the athletes. Many prioritize ⁣personal gain over the athletes’ needs.‍ Additionally, the ⁣departmental administration is ⁤also responsible⁤ for​ the‍ failure in⁢ sports. Despite proposing a budget of $13​ billion for preparation, only $4.3 billion has been allocated so ‍far,‌ with $1.6 billion still⁣ remaining.

Lack of Recognition and Support

The participants have not been informed about the recognition and rewards for ⁣obtaining a medal. Other departments, such as Antioquia and Valle, offer significant monetary rewards for gold ⁣medalists. However, Choco has‌ not provided such support, which may affect the motivation and ‍performance ‌of the athletes.

Challenges Faced by Athletes

The athletes face numerous challenges, including lack‍ of facilities and resources. The absence of public transportation to the Olympic Village and the damage to the ⁣carbon track at the Aeroparque have hindered their​ training. Additionally, there is no feeding⁢ program ‍to support their nutrition and overall⁢ well-being.

Hope for the Future

Despite the current setbacks, there is hope for the future. The members of the canoeing, taekwondo, and athletics⁢ leagues show promise and potential for success.

A Call for‌ Action

It is crucial‍ for the new governor, Dr. Carolina Córdoba, to address the challenges faced by Choco’s athletes and prioritize the development of‍ sports and culture in the region.

God bless our‌ mistreated athletes. Dr. Carolina Córdoba,‌ our new governor, has a very big challenge,⁢ among others, with the sport and culture of Chocó.

The Lyonnais will inaugurate a multi-colored third jersey against OM during the match which will be held at the Stade Vélodrome on December 6, 2023. This abstract jersey was designed by Rhone street artist Simon Poter and is already arousing curiosity. For his part, Pape Gueye is making his comeback in the OM group, while Kondogbia’s participation remains uncertain due to blows received during the previous match against Rennes. Concerning the security of the match, Lyon supporters were prohibited from traveling by an order from the Ministry of the Interior. The location of the hotel where the Lyonnais will reside remains secret and police reinforcements have been planned to ensure their escort and security. The players’ bus will also be more secure than during the first match between the two teams at the end of October. The Marseille Prefecture has planned different routes if necessary. The president of OM, Pablo Longoria, sent a message to supporters in which he called for calm and condemned the incidents which took place during the previous match between the two teams. He also reminds that violence has no place in football and urges fans to show the beauty and passion of the Vélodrome stadium. Source: RMC Sport
