The Venezuelan athlete Anriquelis Barrios reported this Tuesday that she will be absent for the XIX Bolivarian Games Valledupar 2022.
Through a message on social networks, the Creole commented that she has not yet recovered from her injury, which is why she will not be able to attend the sporting event that awards points for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
“I want to inform you that unfortunately I will not be able to represent my beautiful flag in the Bolivarian Games of Valledupar,” explained the Creole.
Barrios joins Robeilys Peinado as one of the great absences of the Venezuelan delegation in the international event.
