Santa Fe: cradle of sports stars
Santa fe is a province characterized by its sportslife. It was at the end of the 19th and early 20th centuries that immigrants arriving on their shores founded various clubs to bring the sports they already practiced in the old world.
Undoubtedly, the province gave countless figures throughout its history in the most diverse disciplines. Therefore, it would be impossible to name all, but we do a brief review for three sports that are passion of crowds:
Although Santa Fe stood out throughout its sporting life in different disciplines, the passion for football in the province is a separate chapter. The local classics (only comparable with the superclassic Boca vs. River) are an overflow of emotion and passion football that dresses the cities of colors. In the city of Santa Fe they face Colón and Union and, in Rosario, Rosario, Rosario Central and Newell’s Old Boys. The passion of the classic Santafecino is a celebration of music, passion and, without a doubt, the most important date where cities are paralyzed and you can breathe football on the street.
Speaking of football stars, we can certainly highlight Lionel Messi, Rosarino who played until the age of 12 in Newell’s “Malvinas Argentinas” children’s football school Old Boys. Renowned star currently playing in Spain and is considered one of the best players of the world .
Another of the most characteristic sports of the province is boxing. Santa Fe has a rich tradition in this sport and gave great figures nationally and internationally. Among them are Carlos Manuel Baldomir, Miguel Ángel Cuello, Juan Martin Coggi, Marcos René Mandala and the incomparable and remembered Carlos Monzón. The latter considered by specialists as the best boxer in Argentine history and one of the best in the world.
Santa Fe is a “nut” province, where motor sport is another of the great passions of Santa Fe
