Adrián Muñoz will enter the year confident of picking up where he left off in 2021.

After being crowned in the Junior Pan American Championship, which was held in November in Colombia, the main goalkeeper of the Puerto Rican team understands that he is entering the new international archery season at his best.

The 20-year-old athlete will warm up his engines at The Vegas Shoot, from February 3 to 6, before officially opening his campaign at the Puerto Rico Archery Cup, to be held from March 14 to 20, at the Juan Ramón Loubriel Stadium, in Bayamón .

“I closed 2021 with a good level, especially in November. That gives me a lot of confidence for what comes this year. I feel that sporting maturity has a lot to do with it,” Muñoz admitted to THE SPOKESPERSON.

At the end of November, the Caborrojeño won bronze medals in the individual and team recurve modality together with Jaynsquel Acevedo, at the Junior Pan American Games in Cali. This was Muñoz’s last event at the youth level.

Now the Puerto Rican is preparing for a season of high performance that will last until October with the qualifier for the Pan American Games in Santiago 2023.

The Puerto Rico Archery Cup will be an early opportunity to strike out your ticket to the Central American and Caribbean Games in San Salvador 2023.

Then he will attend three World Cups: from April 18 to 24, in Turkey; from June 20 to 26, in France; and from July 18 to 24, in Medellín, Colombia.

In August it has the second Central American qualifier, to be played in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

“I thought it was going to be a dead year. But every month there will be an international event. They are preparatory events for next year,” Muñoz said.

“I am still young. I’m just getting into high performance. I feel optimistic with the possibilities of even winning an Olympic quota”, he acknowledged.

The Puerto Rican is currently number 86 in the world and 12 in the American continent.

Muñoz – who continues to train in Cabo Rojo – holds the national adult recurve record with a mark of 670, achieved last October.
