After the Universiade there are the Pan-American games for the Mexican archery bronze medallists

“Our shots were better than those of our American rivals and we played better than the other days, especially compared to the semi-final which we lost against Iran.” The archery Mexicans settled for the bronze medal in the final for the 3rd position, which took place on July 12th in the garden in front of the Royal Palace of Caserta.

Miguel Becerra Rivas and Rodolfo De Alba Gonzalez defeated USA in the men’s team competition at the 2019 Universiade and now they think about the next month’s Pan-American games: “We are waiting for the Compound to be acknowledged among the Olympic games’ disciplines, maybe in two Olympic cycle and not the next year in Tokyo. Meanwhile we are happy that our speciality is included in the games, which involve all North and South America’s Countries every four years.”

In their words there is the pride to represent “the family, the Country, the college” and they are hopeful for the future: “After my graduation in Energy Technologies, I aim to earn a master abroad, maybe in Germany”, Gonzalez explains, while Rivas wants to focus more on his Law’s studies and to put aside sport for a while.
