Cuba is a country with great sporting results. As early as 1959, Commander in Chief Fidel Castro said: "We have decided to promote the sport at all costs, to take it as far as possible, but for this it is necessary the help of all, athletes, leaders, organizations, sports commentators ". 

The Revolution made sport become a right of the people. Fidel, as the promoter of this idea, created the Voluntary Sports Councils, the Sports Initiation Schools, the High Performance Centers, all quarries of champions.

His love and dedication to several disciplines forged the commitment of his practitioners with the older athlete: so Teófilo Stevenson, did not change the applause of his followers for all the money in the world, he pushed Javier Sotomayor as close to heaven as no other human has arrived.

That's why Ana Fidelia Quirot returned to the tracks to keep achieving medals, the spectacular Morenas del Caribe bathed gold the Olympic Volleyball, Omar Linares hit home run to give the triumph to Cuban baseball, that's the work of Fidel sports, those are his medals.

Also the successes of Leineir Domínguez in Chess, the hits of Urbano González, the stolen bases of Antonio Ñico Jiménez or the homers of Romelio Martínez.

The farewell or welcome to each sports delegation, the praise or timely criticism after certain action in the international arena, the accompaniment of the athletes in the good and bad times.

That is why all the medals of the Cuban revolutionary sport are hanging on his neck, his example and champion lineage remain unbeaten and after the journey he undertook a year ago towards immortality, he will continue to reap victories, winning the most difficult battles, because Fidel is Cuba , it's sport is glory.
