As has been the case since 1944, the Circle of Journalists of Venezuela (CDP) is getting ready to choose the most outstanding athletes on the national sports calendar, within the framework of the selection process for the Athlete of the Year Awards, promoted by the institution among their members and invited social communicators. This time it will be the 79th selection.
This edition will be historic, according to the milestones reached by Venezuelan athletes during the sports calendar. A year without equal, which demands maximum responsibility when selecting those athletes, coaches, teams, leaders and institutions that have made this the most fruitful year in the sports history of our country.
