– Among them, the athlete of the moment in Chile, Rocío Muñoz
30 athletes were the highlights who enjoyed a breakfast with the communal authority and some councilors. In relation to this tribute, Mayor Mario Meza said that “the hallmark of our management has been unconditional support for each and every one of the athletes in our commune, who bear the name of Linares, throughout the national territory. and even the rest of the world. As we are not going to recognize these athletes who receive monthly support, Marco and Esteban Grimalt, Illustrious Sons of Linares since 2016, receive a scholarship. Even Rodrigo Retamal, a 5-year-old boy who stands out in motocross like countless sportsmen and athletes. We are proud together with the Municipal Council, because with this breakfast we are inaugurating the 2022 season and we hope at the end of the year to recognize the best male and female athletes in our city. We are experiencing a golden age of sport in our city”.
Meanwhile, the councilors present at this tribute agreed that “they are sports ambassadors who represent us in the country and beyond the borders by placing the Linares flag at the top. They are role models for the new generations and we thank them for all the joy they have given us”.
The athlete of the moment, RocÍo Muñoz, pointed out: “For us as athletes, it is important that big and small achievements are recognized, that is why we are very happy with this recognition.”
