Creating Olympic Dreams became the subject and predicate of “Behind a great result there is a great effort and work.”
After a historic Olympic Games for the Dominican Republic, it is necessary to note the work of the body who for almost 5 years has given the hand to the athletes from Barranquilla 2018 to date in Tokyo 2020, held in 2021.
