Luis Mejía, president of Centro Caribe Sports, concluded this morning with a satisfied smile on his face after his last visit to El Salvador prior to the Central American and Caribbean Games, which will be held from June 23 to July 8.
“I am extremely satisfied and very pleased to see the dynamics, the organization, and the final stretch of the delivery of the Villa Centroamericana and the sports facilities every time I come; this is the fifth time, this is the final monitoring tour, and I can tell you that we will be ready for the opening,” said Mejia, who was accompanied by Dinora Acevedo, general director of the Organizing Committee of San Salvador 2023.
The head of Centro Caribe Sports pointed out that the games will open on June 23, but there are three sports that will begin on June 21, and the delegations will start arriving on June 18 at the Villa Centroamericana y del Caribe.
“Quite simply, El Salvador has accomplished a feat; it has done in a year and a half what other countries must do to organize the Central American and Caribbean Games in six years. I want to recognize all of El Salvador, its people, its government, COSSAN, and the volunteers, because they have put heart, soul, and life into finishing the work to organize the games and to make a worthy setup for our Central America and the Caribbean,” said Mejia.
The president of Centro Caribe Sports inspected the fleet of vehicles that will be used, the reception areas for athletes, the flag plaza, gym, warehouses, cultural area, games area, dining room, swimming pool, and offices of the National Olympic Committees.
“El Salvador will become the Central American and Caribbean nation of sport. We are ready to receive the athletes. I have seen a supervision of the details, which is why I have insisted that El Salvador has achieved a feat for Central American and Caribbean sport.”
During the afternoon, Mejía met with the coordinators of the sports venues and those in charge of the sports that will be active during the games.
