The Creando Sueños Olímpicos (Creso) program received last week The Best of DR award, which is given to companies and organizations that represent the best of the country in the last year.
The Best of DR distinguished Creso for the achievements in the past Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games by the Dominican athletes, where the Dominican Republic won five medals, three silver and two bronze, with an unprecedented performance of 66 athletes in 10 disciplines.
“Sincere thanks to Mercado magazine for distinguishing us with this award. For us at Creso it is of great satisfaction and all the partners feel more than proud of the work done by our athletes in the Tokyo Olympic Games, who put our flag on high, not only for the medals achieved, but also for the largest delegation that was taken, we were fulfilling the Olympic dream,” said Luna, through a video played at the award ceremony.
“The Best Of DR goes hand in hand with Creso’s vision, because what we want is that through sport and education we can have a good Dominican Republic,” said Luna.
The Dominican Republic had won two medals in Beijing 2008, with the gold medal of Félix Díaz, in boxing, and the silver medal of Gabriel Mercedes, in taekwondo.
Similar results were obtained in London 2012 with the gold medal of Félix Sánchez, in the 400 meter hurdles in athletics, and the silver medal of Luguelín Santos in the 400 meter dash, also in athletics.
In the Olympic version of Tokyo 2020, the Dominican Republic obtained silver medals with Zacarías Bonnat, in weightlifting, and the mixed quartet 4×400 meters in athletics with Anabel Medina, Marileidy Paulino, Lidio Andrés Feliz and Alexander Ogando, as well as the silver medal in the 400 meters for Marileidy in individual. In addition to the bronze won by weightlifter Crismery Santana. Dominican baseball also won bronze.
The initiative and effort of Creso and the Dominican Olympic Committee has paid off and that is why the first recognition of the event was dedicated to them.
