The reactions of Mexican athletes to the fact that softball players threw their uniforms in the trash did not wait on social networks
Some high-performance Mexican athletes expressed their love for Mexico on social media, taking advantage of the theme of the softball team, which threw the uniforms with which they participated in the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.
Athletes such as Alejandra Zavala and Diego Balleza defended their nationalism, as did those in charge of denouncing the incident, boxers Brianda Tamara and Esme Falcón.
Diver Diego Balleza, who competed in his first Olympic Games that participated in Tokyo 2020, said on his Twitter account: “For me it means so much effort and dedication to what I love that diving is.”
Balleza even sleeps in the competition uniform, as he shared on Instagram.
For her part, the athlete in sports shooting and silver medalist in Toronto 2015, Alejandra Zavala, lamented the situation and complained that this sport has not received the same financial support that was given to the softball team.
In addition, Kenia Lechuga, who won her semifinal to qualify for the C final of the Rowing Skiff in Tokyo 2020, although she will no longer fight for a medal, limited herself to putting some annoying emojis on her social networks.
Meanwhile, Alely Hernández also denoted her courage towards the attitude that the softball players took. “It is a lack of respect“, He said.
