Another quartet of nations got four tickets: Uruguay (1H-3F), Venezuela (4H), Ecuador (4F) and Peru (4H); Meanwhile, with three names, the representations of Guatemala (2H-1F), Barbados (2H-1F) and Trinidad and Tobago with their male sprinters will arrive at the youth event in Cali.
Canada, Costa Rica and Jamaica close the table of classifieds with a female name each. Outside of these countries that obtained their classification in the Peruvian capital, COPACI clarifies that only those who receive a wild card can participate, which at this time does not need to be defined.
