The rowers Bruno Cetraro and Felipe Klüver received this Thursday the corresponding diploma for having finished in sixth place in the light double pair of the Tokyo Olympics.
The ceremony, held at the Armonía Fishing Club of Montevideo, was attended by government authorities, such as the secretary of the presidency Álvaro Delgado, and the head of the National Sports Secretariat Sebastián Bauzá. The president of the Uruguayan Olympic Committee, Julio César Maglione, was also present.
On July 28 of this year, the Uruguayan rowers had managed to contest the final of Tokyo 2020, thus equaling the best Olympic performance of Uruguay in the XXI Century (In Rio 2016, the athlete Emiliano Lasa also received an Olympic diploma by finishing sixth in the long jump).
Both Cetraro and Klüver, aged 23 and 21 respectively, have already publicly stated that after returning from Japan they are already working focused on Paris 2024, where they will seek to improve and obtain an Olympic medal, something that Uruguayan sport has not achieved since Sydney 2000, when cyclist Milton Wynants achieved silver by finishing second in the track cycling event in the points race.
