Part of the growth in sports in Colombia in recent years is undoubtedly due to Cuba’s collaboration, the sports leader said. He pointed out that he is confident that both countries will be able to do many things together in the future.
For his part, Leon Richard said the document penned on Wednesday is very significant within the context of the First Junior Pan-American Games Cali-Valle 2021, and added that he was very satisfied and honored.
