"Today Miranda is one and is represented in each of the athletes, she is hopeful to fill our state with glory with the participation in each of the disciplines in these National Games," Fraija said.

During his speech yesterday, Fraija congratulated and valued the work of the entity's governor, Héctor Rodríguez, who has been promoting Mirandino sports to the highest levels of competitiveness.

“Miranda was in the first and second places disputing with other states, then the right came to govern and went to seventh, eighth and ninth places where we had no competitive capacity; but with the arrival of the revolution, we have all the expectations that we will return to the podium of the first places”, stressed Fraija.

For his part, the Secretary of Sports of Miranda, Franklin Cardillo, reported that the Miranda delegation is one of the largest to attend this edition, with the participation of more than 600 athletes and 925 people.
