Like Luisa Velásquez, Nayhila Rentería and Sara Buitrago, more than 150 athletes from our University hope to successfully start this first departmental phase of the ASCUN University Games this Friday, March 8, in the city of Medellín.
These first jousts are the qualifying phase for the National University Games that this year will take place in the cities of Cartagena and Barranquilla in September. And that is where our athletes from CES University have their goal set.
Among the disciplines, the participation in men's soccer, and futsal, volleyball and basketball in both branches will be highlighted, to cover sports as a whole. Individual sports will include swimming, track and field, chess, table tennis, field tennis, karate, and taekwondo. Beach volleyball and 3 × 3 basketball will also have the participation of our athletes.
In 2018, the sports representation of CES University stood out in athletics, swimming, karate and taekwondo. And this year it is expected to repeat the 16 medals of the previous edition and get on the podium in the other sports in which we will participate.
Santiago López murillo, representative sport manager of the CES University extends the invitation to accompany our athletes “there are athletes of very high level, who prepare all year round with excellent coaches, and they have all the commitment and attitude to celebrate at the top of the podium ”.
The places where these competitions will take place are the sports venues of the different universities in Antioquia and in the Atanasio Girardot Sports Unit in Medellín.
