Pereira, April 11, 2024. “100 days have passed in which we can tell the Riseraldenses that, under the direction of Juan Diego Patiño Ochoa – our Governor -, we have three athletes confirmed for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. For them and for all the athletes who do part of the Supported Athlete program, we have great news for you, and that is that we are going to improve the resource because you deserve it”.

This was stated by Luis Eduardo Duque Sanz, Secretary of Sports, Recreation and Culture of Risaralda, who explained that support for Risaralda’s elite athletes in the current period increased to 1.9 billion pesos, resources that will benefit nearly 200 athletes.


Without a doubt, the performance of the ‘Casta de Campeones’ athletes would not be the same if they did not have the technical quality and specialized knowledge of the coaches, who are with them on the field every day, seeking to improve the level of their team. which has been reflected in the achievements achieved for Risaralda and Colombia at a national and international level.

The adaptation of the sports infrastructure has as a consequence, not only the increase in the number of practitioners of the different disciplines, but also the strengthening of the sports reserve, which will become the replacement for the athletes who currently represent Risaralda.
