A total of 48 Cuban athletes are already in London as part of the delegation that will represent the island at the Olympic Games set for July 27 to August 12, 2012. This first of two groups that is now completing its training in England is composed of athletes and coaches in cycling, diving, archery, shooting, rowing, table tennis and weightlifting. The overall Cuban delegation will include a total of 110 athletes in 14 disciplines, and is expected to surpass its past performance at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, when Cuba won only two gold medals (by Greco-Roman wrestler Mijain Lopez and hurdler Dayron Robles, shown above).
Boxers, archer Juan Carlos Stevens, divers, rowers, weight lifters, table tennis player Andy Pereira and shooters began training on Tuesday to reach optimum sporting condition and to adapt to the stage of competition. Among the athletes are 12 Greco-Roman and free wrestlers, the latter mode including Katerina Vidiaux, at 63 kilograms. [. . .] Another Cuban group will get to London in the next days, mainly from European countries where they are completing training, including nine judokas, six women and three men, and their teachers Rolando Veitia and Justo Noda, in that order.
