This is the second time that Mexico has topped the medals table in this prestigious Central Caribbean sporting event. In the previous edition in Barranquilla, Colombia (2018), our country ranked first with 341 medals, of which 132 were gold medals.

The Mexican Olympic Committee praised all the athletes, coaches, technical staff, doctors, federation officials, officials, mission leaders and the entire Mexican delegation for the tremendous effort they made for Mexico to be crowned champion: "You are the ones who deserve the applause and affection of the Mexican people. Our eternal admiration goes out to you and your families," concludes the communiqué.

It should be noted that thanks to the Elite Program, which has been running for more than 20 years under the management of Gustavo Alpuche Aguirre, Anahuac supports high-performance athletes by providing them with a quality education through its undergraduate and graduate programs without neglecting their sports training.
