HAVANA, Cuba, Apr 16 (acn) Obtaining the six still pending tickets for the Pan American Games in Toronto will be the goal of Cubans that will compete in the continental wrestling championship to be held in Chile from April 24 to 26.

On Chilean soil, Cuba will be represented by 18 wrestlers, six men in Greco-Roman style and equal number of women and men in freestyle.

The women will go in search of four berths for the Canadian contest; while men will only have to get a ticket to complete the roster.

Katherine Videaux (63 kilograms), monarch in Guadalajara 2011, told ACN that in addition to get the ticket to Toronto, her main purpose will be facing the best opponents of her weight.

Julio Mendieta, head coach of men's national wrestling team, explained they attend the event with the second figures of each division, who are already on Chilean soil for a training base.

He added that Alfredo Cisneros (57 kg) will be responsible for getting the ticket that is missing.

After that tournament in Chile, the Cubans will hold in May a match against American wrestlers on that nation, in both specialties.
