In his message, he highlighted the synergy that sports and nutrition establish for optimal human development: “We are convinced of the benefits of practicing sports on a person’s health, but we are also convinced that without good nutrition, performance and results of sports practice would not be the best,” he said.
For his part, the researcher and teacher Gustavo González Carballido, gave as an example of creativity and resilience, as food for self-efficacy, the multi-champion Ana Fidelia Quirós, who after a domestic accident that left her with multiple burns and for which she underwent various operations to restore mobility, in 1995 he won the gold medal in the 800 meter dash at the World Athletics Championships in Gothenburg, Sweden.
