Cuban relay teams travel to the Bahamas for IAAF World Relays

HAVANA, Cuba, May 3 (ACN) Members of the three Cuban relay teams that will compete in the IAAF World Relays, to be held in the Bahamas on May 4 and 5, will travel to that Caribbean country today.

That event provides tickets for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, hence the importance of achieving a good result.
The 4×400 meters (m) quartet will lead the Cuban delegation to that competition and will have the difficult task of defending the title won in the Silesia 2021 edition.

The team includes Roxana Gomez, Rose Mary Almanza and Lisneidy Veitia, champions three years ago, and Dayli Cooper, Melissa Padron and Camila Rodriguez are also part of the team.

Laura Moreira, Jocelyn Echazabal, Yarima Garcia, Enis Magda Perez, Greysi Robles and Yunisleydis Garcia will also represent the island in the 4×100 meters race.

In the same way, but among the men, Reinaldo Espinosa, Edel Amores, Yaniel Carrero, Aniel Lopez and Shainer Reginfo will participate, according to what was announced to the press last April by the Cuban Athletics Federation.

The ranking system stipulates that the eight finalist relay teams will secure their tickets to the Olympic Games, while the relays that do not make the race will compete among themselves for an additional six tickets.
