The Panam Sports Archery Camp was officially inaugurated at the Mexican Olympic Sports Center in Mexico City.
From September 18 to 26, 36 youth athletes from 19 countries will be participating in different training sessions focused on further developing the sport on the American continent in the new generations.
The federations attending this camp are those that participated with an athlete in the first Pan American Junior Games in Cali last year.
Ricardo Probert Maldonado, Sports Director of Panam Sports expressed the following, “Panam Sports is the continental organization and one of the five arms of the International Olympic Committee, precisely to promote Olympic sport and encourage our countries to achieve better goals in each Olympic cycle. These camps are very useful for our athletes and we are very happy with these types of meetings to achieve better performance.
The training sessions are in charge of Juan René Serrano, Mexican Olympian, Julio Soler del Castillo, Mexico’s coach, and Filippo Clini, coach of the Swiss team. “It fills me with satisfaction to be here and share my experience with you, a knowledge that I hope you can take back to your countries and spread it for the growth of archery,” said Serrano at the opening ceremony.
