Antioquia will attempt to defend title at the Games
Four years ago nobody dreamed Antioquia would rack up ten gold medals in canoeing, but the team did it with an unforgettable performance at the National Games.
This year a few issues are standing in the way of more optimistic predictions and even the most hopeful aren’t expecting more than eight gold medals. One of the main problems is that the team lost four of its male athletes and there was a lack of resources during training season, but it all got straightened out in May.
On the bright side, athletes like Edwin Amaya and Tatiana Muñoz, who contributed to the gold medal count four years ago, are also present this year; new athletes like Mateo Pérez and Handerson Holguin also show promise.
