Colombia escapes at the top of the medal table and Bolivia is last –

The Colombian team was consolidated yesterday as the immovable and undisputed leader of the XIX Bolivarian Games Valledupar 2022, after taking a notable advantage in the medals won, on a day in which Bolivia returned to stay in last place and with almost empty hands.

The advantage that the host athletes gained suggests that victory is almost imminent, although Venezuela, a country accustomed to wearing the Bolivarian crowns, is committed to coming back in the last week of competitions.

The day also opened the dispute for third place, a battle waged between Chile and Peru, although the Dominican Republic surprised by winning gold medals and entering the discussion, to the detriment of Ecuador, which subtracted several positions.
