A curious moment happened in this edition of the San Salvador 2023 Central American and Caribbean Games, when a Cuban athlete gave her bronze medal to a Mexican athlete.
The Cuban Laina Pérez presented her medal to the Mexican Alejandra Cervantes, who competed in the shooting or pistol category.
The competition regulations state that no country can place three athletes on the same podium, so the fourth place will receive the bronze medal when this situation arises, although in the case of Pérez he considered that the metal did not suit him. corresponded, so he got rid of it.
In the end, the three Mexicans kept the medals they won in competition, thanks to the fair play of the Cuban.
