The Azuayan athlete, who was already an Olympian at the Tokyo 2020 Games, expressed after this performance. “Happy, content and motivated, that’s how I’m leaving Colombia, where I officially start my path to the 2024 Paris Olympic Games. The idea is to add the number of points in this type of event to reach the goal,” the tricolor specified.
