A breath that is worth gold

Sol dominated everything he ran, was the fastest in all the tests and this generated his medal.


 María Sol Ordas , female rowing representative, won the first gold medal for Argentina at the Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires 2018 .

Sol dominated everything he ran, was the fastest in all the tests and this generated his medal. How did he get it? With sacrifice and training, with a lot of effort, dedicating everything to rowing. But he also highlighted something that is noticeable in all the Olympic parks where the games take place: the support of the Argentine public.

“Argentines made a difference,” said the San Nicolas born Olympic medalist. This phrase reflects the above, at any time an Argentine athlete is participating, cries of encouragement are heard, especially when it is for a medal. This was what happened in the urban park, more precisely at the Puente de la Mujer in Puerto Madero, where more people stood to encourage Sol as he passed under the bridge in search of gold.

Finally, she admitted that this public's encouragement only made her think of the gold medal and that she was forced not to loosen even a second in this final, “there could not be second.” The perfect combination generated Argentine sacrifice and encouragement, generated the best result.
