Six Cubans in each gender will participate in the Santo Domingo 2023 Swimming Open, from March 31 to April 2, with a view to validate times for the XXV Central American and Caribbean Games of San Salvador 2023.

Cuba's leading figure, Elisbet Gámez, heads the women's group completed by Andrea Becali and Dainé Pedré from the capital, Lorena González from Espiritu, Laurent Estrada from Villaclare and Daysi Ramírez from Santiago de Cuba.

The men's team is made up of Julio Calero from Espiritu, Maikel Rabí from Avila, Jonathan Pérez from Granma and Luciano González, Fermín Rodríguez and Vladimir Hernández from Havana.

They are accompanied by their coaches Luisa María Mojarrieta and Víctor Rodríguez, and physiotherapist Miladys Gómez, informed JIT Nelson García, national commissioner of this sport, who will travel at the head of the delegation.

"From January 1, 2022 and until April 30 of this year, the qualification period for the multisport event in San Salvador will take place. We hope to increase the number of athletes with tickets," he said.

On May 3, each country must send its qualification proposals and on May 23 the lucky ones will be announced.

Elisbet and Rodolfo Falcón Jr., the breaststroker Calero and the backstroker Andrea, who also specializes in freestyle, have already secured places.

The Cuban delegation leaves for the Dominican capital on March 26, the technical congress will be held on March 30 and the competition will begin one day later.

Elisbet returns from Asia next Sunday, after finishing her presence in the international development center of World Aquatics with the open tournament in Malaysia, where she won four titles in 100, 200, 400 and 800 freestyle.

The highlight was his national record in the shorter distance (55.40 seconds), erasing from the books the 55.51 held by him since 2018.
