2016 sees us full of expectations, as usually is the case when the Olympic Games are on the sporting horizon, which this year will be hosted by Rio de Janeiro. 2015 was a year full of achievements for Cuban sport. A year that saw success at several world competitions, improved rankings, and a return to the top in some disciplines, after long dry spells.
Given such a year, Granma provides a selection of some of these moments of glory, marking solid steps on the path toward Friday, August 5, 2016, when the world’s eyes will be fixed on Rio.
Before then, so as to prove themselves, our athletes will be working to optimize all their capabilities in order to attempt to secure an even greater result than the five gold, three silver and seven bronze medals obtained in London 2012.
