Guantanamo athletes far from the podium in London

Despite the good performance of the Cuban delegation at the Olympic Games in London, the six athletes led Guantanamo to one of its poorest performances in these summer events.

The disqualification by injury of the Olympic Champion and World Record holder Dayron Robles in the final of the 110 meter hurdles and the ninth place by the World Champion in triple jump Yargeris Savigne were most discordant notes in the Cuban athletics, whose results were lower than expected.

For its part, the Remo stayed away from their dreams to climb the podium after being eliminated, in semifinals of the single skull, the Pan American champions Yariulvis Cobas and Angel Fournier.

Pan American bronze medalist Yowlis Bonne, wrestling, was also excluded from quarterfinals in his Olympic debut against the Japanese Kenichi Yumoto.

Boxing ran similar fate as the holder of the world title in the junior category Erislandis Savon, fell in his first bout against the Briton Anthony Joshua 17-16.

Not everything is colored black for Guantanamo, as the work of the coach of the Cuban boxers Orlando Acebal, placed on high that sport´s quality in Cuba by providing two gold medals and the same number of bronze metals to the delegation participating in the summer event.

Most Olympic titles on this occasion was provided by the western province of Pinar del Rio through the   wrestler Mijain Lopez, the boxer Roniel Iglesias and judoka Idalys Ortiz, results that placed the Greater Antilles in the 16th place in the Olyimpc medal count.

These results are evidence of the effort that the Cuban government made towards the development of sports in the country, but is both a warning light for the analysis and improvement of the work with the elite athletes, which in several times have represented the Caribbean nation in numerous international events of the highest quality.
