Gymnastics in Guantanamo has never been a stronghold, but as it turns out the 12- year old Pablo Pozo gave us all the surprise. He won 6 gold medals and bronze at the National School Games that was recently held along the Cuban archipelago.
Little but with strong complexion, the kid dreams to represent Cuba and get as much triumphs and medals just as the best Cuban gymnast of all time Erick Lopez, who at the same time is his idol.
Pozo won his medals in Rhythmicgymnastics and was selected the most outstanding athlete among the art competitive sports in the event that gathered more than 6 000 students from the whole country who competed in the 32 sports.
Dedication, love and sacrifice are the kid´s implement who shares his smile with me and shows me his desire to be successful but at the same time to continue to have friends, fun, studies, and hold the memories of his natal Caribe neighborhood in the easternmost of the Cuban provinces.
Many are the challenges for the gymnast Pablo Pozo, as this sport´s specially dominated by European, American and Asian athletes.
Nevertheless, he sticks to the hope of climbing the podium in Pana American, Central American and Olympic Games, a result that only dedicated dreamers achieve.
