“It has been amazing to see all that they are doing”: Cristina Hiller, artistic swimming ITD

The International Technical Delegate (ITD) for artistic swimming, Costa Rican Cristina Hiller, visited El Salvador once again to visit, among other commitments, the Complejo Deportivo El Polvorín, the venue that will host this discipline in the Central American and Caribbean Games San Salvador 2023.

Hiller was very surprised with the progress of the works that she was able to see, given that she has known the facilities for many years, and the renovations have been very significant.

“It has been amazing to see everything they are doing, I never imagined they were building new buildings. I have known this pool for 20 or 25 years, and they have invested a lot in it. They are making a significant effort because there are so many workers; I think we will be ready in two months,” Hiller commented.

The delegate was also accompanied by members of the construction company in charge of the project, in addition to the staff of the Organizing Committee of the San Salvador 2023 Games (COSSAN2023), specifically from the Infrastructure and Sports areas, who were attentive to any suggestions and queries that might arise.

Hiller was also grateful to COSSAN2023, as in one of the previous visits she had requested the marking of some important lines in the pool for artistic swimming, and that request was fulfilled in a timely manner.

“We had designed the lines to help the athletes position themselves when they make their turns in the diving pool; the two lateral lines and the floor were placed just for our discipline of artistic swimming, so I am very pleased that we managed to make those marking lines very well, and I know the athletes will be very grateful for that,” she commented.

Finally, the delegate praised the quality of the work being done to have an international-level swimming pool at Complejo Deportivo El Polvorín, which will have the capacity to host more momentous events in addition to the San Salvador 2023 Games.

“I want to express our gratitude on behalf of all the countries of the Central American and Caribbean Confederation of Amateur Swimming (CCCAN) area; we are the ones who are going to take advantage of this pool the most, not only for the San Salvador 2023 Games but later because I know we will have many competitions here, and it will be a very dear destination for our coaches and athletes to compete in this discipline; it will be one of the few or the only one in the CCCAN area that will meet all our requirements,” Hiller said..
