Camacho commented that “the incentives that you are receiving today from the Ministry of Sports, obey an express disposition of President Luis Abinader, who has said that athletes like you must be supported with much more passion”.

He said that by recognizing the special effort made by special athletes, the President is aware that they must be given equal treatment as that received by conventional athletes who represent the country in international events such as the Central American, Pan American and Olympic Games.

He recalled that the same treatment was recently given to the athletes who qualified for the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games, which will be held shortly after the Olympic Games in the French capital.

Athlete Christopher Melenciano won two gold medals, one silver and one bronze; Xavier Ogando won two bronze medals and one silver, while Raine Caba won one silver and one bronze.

Likewise, Nazari Caraballo won silver and bronze medals, while Carlos Denzel was the silver medalist in the 5,000 meters.
