CAMAGÜEY. - After two years dominating the PioneerCups, Camagüey faces this year an even major challenge: to stay being one of the potencies of the sport in this category, in spite of the changes experienced on its system of competitions.

From this Sunday, a week of opportunities will be opened to try it, with 17 sports in action and 120 of our athletes thinking about how to begin with the right foot their way towards the Olympian glory.

In accordance with the information offered to Ernesto Rementería Gómez, provincial methodologist of School Sport, in the capital of the province it is foreseen the development of the contests of diving and wrestling, which will take as headquarters the Faculty of Physical Culture and the University of Medical Sciences, respectively. In both cases, our representatives are among the favorites to lead the general medal count.

In parallel with the call of the youngest, from Sunday, the 16th the classifying tournaments for the next National School Games will begin.

It is up to Camagüey to receive the contests of the school handball in both sexes, and that of the masculine volleyball for school and juvenile. The first ones are announced to happen in the field of the School of Sports Initiation Cerro Pelado, with the presence - in addition to the home team - of the formations of Sancti Spíritus, Ciego de Ávila, Las Tunas, Holguín, Granma, Santiago de Cuba and Guantanamo.

In the case of the fans of the sport of high net, their attention will have to be directed to the Sports Center Rafael Fortún and the Auditorium Iván Hidalgo Funes, stages of these two competitive segments, which will also have the leading role of the rest of the selections of oriental half of the Island.

In contrast to what happened in previous calls, this year the Pioneer Cup organizes its calendar from a national classification, instead of for regional segments. That´s why, we expect a rally in provinces such as Havana and Santiago de Cuba, principal potencies of the athletic activity in the country.
