Rowers travel to Xochimilco for training camp

Adriana Escobar, Karla Calvo, Roberto Carlos López, and Miguel Morán, rowing athletes from the INDES Effort & Glory Program, will travel this Thursday to Mexico to participate in a training camp from May 5 to June 1.

The rowers will train at the Virgilio Uribe Olympic track in Xochimilco as part of their preparation for the Central American and Caribbean Games San Salvador 2023.

“Coach Yuri Calderón will also travel with the four athletes, who explained that this will be the last camp for the rowing team.

“We leave for Xochimilco, and the idea is to complete an altitude training camp to improve our aerobic condition during the 25 days we will be there. Then we will return on June 1 to stay training at home for the Central American and Caribbean Games San Salvador 2023,” explained Roberto Lopez, who will participate in his third regional games after Mayaguez 2010 and Barranquilla 2018.

The rowing competitions in the San Salvador 2023 Games will take place from June 24 to 28 at Lago de Ilopango.

López will compete in men’s singles, doubles (with his partner Miguel Morán) and four long oars without coxswain (M4X).

“So far, we have been meeting every goal we had set for ourselves, and with this base, we are going to get in shape for the Central American and Caribbean Games. Then we come here to get familiar with the official track and train in our own environment. We would like to thank INDES for the support they have given us; everything has been accomplished for us to be in the best conditions”, said Lopez.

Adriana Escobar, Karla Calvo, and Roberto Lopez came from competing in the qualifier in Laguna Grande, Chile, where in mid-April they won their spot for the Pan American Games Santiago 2023. In the case of Calvo, she qualified in open women’s doubles along with Anne-Andrée Sirois.
