Mediocre our Latin America in Tokyo; Are we really going to space?

Just over 1,100 Latin American athletes participate in Such in the Olympic gamess.

It has been 10 days since the competitions started, which will conclude in another week.

It promises such a section, but it does not comply, but let’s be fair: the aforementioned portal is not the one that has been lacking, but the Latin American athletes and, with them, their governments, unfortunately almost all of them failed.

Until the early hours of this Saturday all the countries of Latin America, except two, have in the following legend in related to his gold medal statistic: “Waiting for the first athletes to win gold!”

No gold

Just two golds for the entire region

But Brazilians don’t feel Latin American

Waiting to win something

Terrible, very sad sports results from Latin America. Only Ecuador and Brazil have obtained gold medals. But, not to mention, if we abided by national preferences, we would only have to include one country from our region among those that have triumphed in Tokyo: Ecuador, in only Ecuador; It is a fact that most Brazilians do not feel Latin American … their disappointing elites do, but the people just do not.

Not many days ago, the Mexican foreign minister Marcelo Ebrard He made in Twitter an absolutely serious announcement, which everyone considered a bad joke: the creation, promoted by Mexico and Argentina, of the Latin American and Caribbean Space Agency (ALCE), to which Bolivia, Ecuador, El Salvador and Paraguay have joined, while Colombia and Peru will participate as “observers”.

In The financial, Juan Ignacio Zavala he considered the above as “something truly crazy laughter. Not even in the most absurd and ridiculous comic programs would the most idiotic scriptwriter have thought of an association, for example, with Ecuador to showcase technological potential and conquer space ”.

The most absurd thing is that, in JJ. OO.Ecuador has already won a gold medal, and Mexico is still waiting for its first win.

How are sports and space travel related? In which technology is essential in both activities. Our backwardness is scary.
