It was very important to emphasize the work that several executive members of the World Cup in Colombia have done. They traveled to Gijón, Spain, to observe the best in the Duathlon World Championships. All of them attended meetings and they showed several videos and gave out a lot of information about our country.
Colombia has been supported by athletes, managers and Directors that have come to our country to compete in other international events as the Iberoamerican Champion in Cartagena and just two months ago the Central American and Caribbean Championship at Guatapé.
The executives that traveled to Europe were: Doctor José Luis Echeverry, President of the National triathlon Union, Doctor Claudia Sabogal, Executive Director of the same union. Doctor William Moncada, General manager of the international events in Antioquia, and representing the local government named Gobernación de Antioquia, as main supporter, and Eduardo Cano, Chief of press , also representing Indeportes Antioquia, official sponsor of the World Cup too.
