The Correntino who swims to the end

Ignacio Zalazar swims to the end always. He is one of the 42 Argentine athletes selected to continue in search of the JJ.OO. of Youth.


In the current situation, it is difficult to think of such a distant future, of such uncertainty and unpredictability. The Youth Olympic Games or YOG Dakar 2022 seem too far away. Possibly, many people would recommend not spending too much time until the thing clears up. Because who knows what's going to happen tomorrow? However, Ignacio Zalazar is one of those who swim until the end always. And that's where he goes, straight to get a place at the Youth Olympics.

There is still a long stretch for the young Correntino to win the label “Olympic sportsman”. But first we have to celebrate the good news. In a virtual meeting with the Argentine Confederation of Water Sports, Ignacio learned about two important things.The first was the completion of the first stage of the qualification together with 500 Argentine athletes . The second, much more important, his selection to continue competing for an Olympic square.

To cross the Atlantic

The young swimmer of Club Regatas Corrientes swims to the end in all his competitions. However, in order to become part of the Argentine Mission for the IV Youth Olympic Games, you will have to make double efforts.

This last qualifying stagerequires a solid training program and international competitions. “I am very happy to be in the Program. I know there are times of a lot of work and sacrifice, but I am willing to do so,” Zalazar said. Regarding the work that is coming, “Nacho” Salazar said that athletes will receive personalized follow-up. Each athlete will have a specific and individualized plan. The incentiveinvolves not only crossing the ocean into Dakarian territory, but also accessing the Argentine sports scholarship system. Available exclusively for athletes who manage to advance to the end.

Still no one knows when and under what conditions the sport will return, however, the Correntino is prepared. Ready to swim to the end.
