Cuban sport delegation to Toronto Pan Am games meet with the FiveHAVANA, Cuba, Jun 19 (acn) The Cuban delegation to the Pan American Games in Toronto underlined, in exchange with the Cuban Five in Havana, the commitment of victoriously returning from the continental competition.

In the meeting at the Covarrubias Hall of the National Theatre, the Cuba athletes talked with the antiterrorist fighters, who stressed the importance of competing with dignity and uplifting the work of the Revolution.

Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez, Gerardo Hernandez and Rene Gonzalez, heroes of the Republic of Cuba, claimed that the main goal of the athletes in Canada will be to proudly represent the flag and an entire people waiting for their performances.

You will experience the excitement of defending the colors of your country, winning a contest or singing the national anthem on the podium, moments with which I've dreamed in my life, although I never had qualities of athlete, Gerardo jokingly said.

Dailin Belmonte, marathon runner, said she was impressed by the human greatness of the Cuban Five, to whom she dedicated the silver medal conquered in Veracruz 2014 Central American and Caribbean Games.

The Greco-Roman wrestler Mijail Lopez acknowledged that this will be a very tough contest, but they will fight for the ideals and achievements they have always defended in any trench.

We are going for the second place in the standings and will return home with the greatest glory, which is to be worthy, said Lopez, who on behalf of the delegation presented a certificate of recognition to the Cuban Five.
