With a delegation of 60 athletes, Yucatan will be present at the “Indigenous National Sports Meeting 2018”, an event in which indigenous athletes who live in high density communities of indigenous peoples within Mexico compete in different sports disciplines. The event will be held from September 24 to 30 in the city of San Francisco de Campeche.
Yucatán will have representatives competing in basketball (3 on 3), football 7, volleyball and trak and field with 5 and 10 kilometers and cross-country, with the participation of male and female athletes.
Armín Lizama Córdova, head of the department of popular sports of the Yucatan Institute of Sports (Instituto del Deporte de Yuctaán: IDEY) and head of the Yucatecan delegation in these games, stated that the last indigenous games held in Morelia, Michoacán in 2016, the Yucatecan team brought the gold medal in women’s basketball and the silver medal in women’s volleyball. “In that edition the state finished in 4th place overall.”
Lizama Cordova said that this will be the fourth time that Yucatan participates in these games and in all the previous editions, the Yucatán delegation has won medals.
In the city of Tepic, Nayarit in 2014, Yucatán won a bronze; in Campeche 2015, gold and silver, same as in Morelia 2016; while in 2017 the event could not be carried out as a result of the earthquake that shook Mexico City and affected several neighboring states of the nation’s capital, such as Estado de México, Morelos, Puebla and Hidalgo.
Lizama Cordova declared that they expect to improve what was done in the last edition, mentioned that in this event, Yucatán is considered one the strongest delegations.
