The mayor of the town, in the Paris Region, François Asensi, gave his approval to receive a delegation of boxers and trainers from Cuba, who will have access to modern facilities such as the Jean Guimier Sports Complex, which includes a boxing gym, weight room, swimming pool and others.

The commune would be in charge of the accommodation and internal transportation expenses of the guests, a gesture that shows the priority that its authorities grant to sports and their desire to support the Olympic and Paralympic events in the French capital, in order to make them a true popular celebration.

Asensi, who has been the mayor of Tremblay-en-France since 1991, stressed the importance of defending the healthy values of the Olympic Movement and keeping them away from mercantilism.

CubaCoop President Victor Fernandez told Prensa Latina that this decision represents the first success of the association’s initiative to facilitate the training of Cuban athletes on French soil prior to Paris-2024, in coordination with Cuban authorities and federations.

In mid January, Fernandez announced the project, consisting of seeking the support from French cities for Cuban sports, a sector also strongly affected by the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on the Caribbean island.
