Cuban youth world medalists go to the Caribbean Games

Havana, May 23 (Prensa Latina) World youth medalists Juan Carley Vazquez and Shainer Reginfo will lead the Cuban athletics team to the First Caribbean Games of Guadalupe-2022, national commissioner Yipsi Moreno announced today.

In addition to Vazquez, U-20 champion in Nairobi-2021 in shot put, and Reginfo, bronze medalist in the 100 meters in the same event, the long jumpers Yanisley Carrion and Leidys Perez, and the triple jumper Andy Hechavarria stand out in the delegation.

Also in the delegation will be javelinist Mariannailys Silva, middle-distance runners Daily Cooper (800), Maher Salah Mahroos and Hansel Abreu (1,500) and short hurdlers Greisys Roble and Keily Linet Perez, gold and silver medalists this weekend at the Ibero-American Games in Alicante, Spain.

The athletic team for Guadeloupe includes long jumpers Maikel Vidal and Daniel Mustelier, and sprinter Jenns Fernandez, among others.

Moreno told the digital site Jit that the attendance in some non-traditional events responds to the fact that the marks will be valid to qualify for the upcoming Central American and Caribbean Games of San Salvador-2023.

Participation in the Caribbean Games, scheduled for June 29 to July 3, is determined by the quotas assigned to each country, which in the case of Cuba were 23 between women and men in athletics.
