Athletes prepare for the Liberdade Race despite deadlock for carrying it out

Praia, Jan 4 (Inforpress) – The athletes from Southern Santiago have started their preparatory training for the 2021 Liberdade Race, which is held annually on January 13, with the the federation green light, despite deadlock for carrying it out.

With the deadlock persisting, in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, but motivated by the resumption of the Praia and São VicenteSão Silvestre races, held on December 27 and 31, respectively, the athletes, the vast majority representing “Emicela Team”, were on Sunday morning in the streets of the capital to intensify their strategies.

“Green light for the“ 2021 Liberdade Race in the next January 13 and New format planned to be carried out it”, was the announcement by the Cabo Verdean Athletics Federation (FCA) that aroused the“ anxiety of athletes”, but Inforpress found out that nothing is decided, since it is up to the City Hall of Praia, which already has the federation project in hand, the decision, as an organizing entity.

What is certain is that the FCA announced a road race in a different format than usual, but with the cancellation of the traditional “walk” and the maintenance of adapted athletics, a wheelchair category, on the 100-meter tracks.
