Sports Seremi, Rodrigo Cubilla Retamal, reported Saturday that more than 120 athletes participating in the Araucanía Games in Magallanes return to the area.
The sports authority said young people would fly by air from the neighboring area, just as they did when they were traveling to the competition. "We have provided a $ 90 million budget to provide our dealers with the safest and most comfortable trip, apart from the concern that they can count on sports clothing, accident insurance, accommodation and food along the way," said Cubilla .
Sports, swimming, judo, football and volleyball are the disciplines contested in Punta Arenas, while Puerto Natales' headquarters are concentrated in basketball, cycling and volleyball for men and women.
Last year the game was held in the Argentine province of Chubut, an opportunity in which our region won four medals. Judo won bronze with Paulina Rebolledo and gold with Betania Urrutia, while in sports, Luis Riffo added bronze to the 110-meter hurdles and 400-meter hurdles.
This year no major triumphs have been achieved, despite the fact that the delegation of Aysén has played a good role. "I have to congratulate the cycling team that has improved their position in the group time test, rising from 6th place last year to the 4th place this year," said Seremi.
