The Mexican Artistic Swimming Team made history by hanging gold on the world Championship recently done in Soma Bay, Egyptsituation that, for Jessica Nephew member of the tricolor team, it is something incredible, mainly due to the adversities that the team went through to attend the competition.
“I think this cycle is the most important in my career because of everything we’ve been through. The medals are very familiar to me, they have been difficult months, but we are happy to have achieved the result and to make Mexico be at the top, no matter what, we are working and doing well, that gave me satisfaction and motivation to continue working hard for the next competitions”, he mentioned at a press conference.
Regarding the words that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said during a morning conference, in which he assured that there was support for the aquatic team, he mentioned that perhaps there is a lack of information on the subject, since they did not receive any type of support to attend competition in Egypt.
“Perhaps it is a little lack of information, we would like to tell the president how things are, our feelings about everything, to tell him that we really pay for flights, lodging, food. We have received nothing, more than the support of CNARlending us facilities and hosting my companions, was essential for our preparation, but on the part of SEDENA My colleagues receive a salary because they are part of, I am not part of SEDENA”.
Along the same lines, the Aztec swimmer made it clear that the swimming team would like to clarify the situation with the president Lopez Obradorsince the only thing they ask is that they be supported and recognized for the effort they are making.
“Yes we would like (to clarify things with AMLO) we do not want conflicts, we want them to listen to us, to recognize what we are doing, to give us what we deserve, what is on the tabulator of CONADE and we should be given… As of January we have not received anything, neither scholarships nor salary, we have a coach who has not been paid for 11 months, especially that we are not paid for the competitions, it is a lot of stress to ask for support and train .”, he sentenced.
