A sports cooperation agreement was signed between the Cuban and Chilean Olympic Committees, taking advantage of the exchange framework offered by the First Junior Pan American Games, held in this Colombian city.

They say that Cuban female weightlifters did not want to leave the First Junior Pan American Games without climbing onto the podium, and one of them reached that goal at the first opportunity: Elizabeth Caridad Reyes Entenza (87 kg), who won the bronze medal Sunday at the Ramon Elias Lopez Coliseum, in the Colombian municipality of Palmira.

Cuba still ranks sixth in the medal table of the First Junior Pan Am Games in Cali after its divers, judokas and weightlifters won a silver medal and two bronze medals on Sunday, for a total tally of six gold, six silver and five bronze medals.

Cuba once again paraded through the Pascual Guerrero Olympic Stadium in this city. Fifty years ago it was fighting to reach the top of the 6th Pan American Games. Today it competes to conquer new successes in the 1st Junior Pan American Games. Two different times, two different generations, but a clear common goal in the revolutionary sport.

Cuba took the gold on Thursday at the mixed diving team competition which place the island as leader of the medal board of the ongoing meet in Colombia.
