112 elite athletes from Castilla-La Mancha benefit from regional government aid

A total of 112 elite athletes from Castilla-La Mancha who have excelled in national and international competitions in their respective disciplines will soon receive aid from the regional government. This is stated in the final resolution of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports that is published today on the notice board of the electronic headquarters of the Community Board of Castilla-La Mancha, by which the 2019 call for grants is resolved for these athletes and which is endowed with 300,000 euros.

The general director of Youth and Sports, Noelia Pérez, explained that the grants, with a maximum of 7,000 euros, are intended to cover the expenses generated by the practice of sports and the training activity of these athletes.

They have been awarded to athletes who practice disciplines such as athletics, karate, football, cycling, karate, Olympic shooting, fishing, mountain sports, air sports, motorcycling, canoeing, skating, swimming, taekwondo, triathlon, tennis, gymnastics, life-saving and life-saving, badminton, rugby, surfing, clay pigeon shooting, water skiing, petanque and judo.

But there are also aids for athletes with disabilities who practice disciplines such as triathlon, swimming, athletics, karate, cycling, badminton and Olympic shooting, all adapted.

The general director has indicated that “we support a wide spectrum of sports disciplines because we know and we know the personal dedication behind each sporting success”. The financial support, Pérez added, “allows them a little peace of mind in their sports and training career that allows them to continue working so that while competing at a high level they are forging a professional future”.

Likewise, it has indicated that at the end of this year the aid corresponding to this 2020 call will be published again and will once again have an amount of 300,000 euros.

On the other hand, Noelia Pérez, has shown her desire that next year an important representation of these athletes can attend the Olympics in Tokyo 2021. “The news that is appearing around the fact that next year we could have vaccines to combat the coronavirus makes us optimistic that the Olympic event can be held and some of these athletes can take the name of Castilla-La Mancha to the largest sporting event “, he concluded.
