Acapulco, Mexico, Feb 27 (Prensa Latina) Cubans Filiberto Delgado and Eduardo Pérez are celebrating their inclusion in the prestigious Wrestling Hall of Fame of the Americas on Tuesday.

Delgado, who is the current coach of the women’s national wrestling team, has been linked to this sport for more than three decades, first at the head of the Cuban and Italian men’s national teams, and now with the national women’s team, with excellent results at all levels.
