The Pan-American medalist Alvis Almendra will close the Isthmian participation when he sees action in the 87 kilograms Greco style category.
The three Panamanian Olympic wrestlers have been in Sofia, Bulgaria, since mid-March with coach Antonio González. In the Bulgarian capital they had the opportunity to train and learn with athletes from other countries, which has allowed them to be in rhythm for the competition that is coming.

“We know it is a difficult competition but the three athletes have spent almost two months in Bulgaria, where they have had great preparation,” said Guillermo Mojica, treasurer of the Panamanian Federation of Olympic Wrestling.
Previously, the three Panamanian athletes were part of a camp that was held in the Antón district, Coclé, where they worked under the bubble system.
Likewise, last December, they participated in the World Cup that took place in Serbia.
