The Dominicans participated in London-2012 with 35 athletes, the highest number ever, and hope to surpass that number.
So far, 19 athletes have got tickets, including the women’s volleyball team; Katherine Rodriguez, Moises Hernandez and Bernardo Pie in taekwondo; Marileidy Paulino in athletics; rower Ignacio Vasquez, and Hector Florentino and Ivonne Losos in horseback riding.
However, there are still several pre-Olympics to be held depending on the situation of Covid-19 and it is expected that these events will have the presence of the representatives of this nation.
The Dominican Weightlifting Federation has high hopes in Crismery Santana, Zacarias Bonnat, Veronica Saladin and Luis Garcia, the last two, very close to the quota.
In the same way, wrestling hopes to include several of its representatives, among them, Juan Rubelin Ramirez, Luis Miguel Perez, Jancel Pimentel and Leo Dalis, and gymnastics is not far behind, since its star Audrys Nin has the potential to qualify for the summer event.
