Paralympic athletes pursue different goals
Germán Naranjo and Elkin Serna won silver together at the Paralympics in London this past summer, but this weekend they’re after different things. In Medellín, Serna is being recognized in a ceremony at the ‘Cerro a Cerro’ race, which connects two hills: the Nutibara and the Volador; he will also be competing in the race.
“I am grateful for the act, for showing the community who Elkin Serna is,” the athlete said.
Meanwhile Naranjo is running the 15 Km race in Buga in hopes of securing a spot in Brazil’s traditional San Silvestre race, as well as financial support to get there.
