If there’s one thing Cubans are proud of–and Cubans are proud of many things–is our sportsmen. Cuban sportsmen are among the top sportsmen of the world, and so they have been for a long time. Everybody knows Capablanca, even if you’re not a fan of chess. Capablanca was one of the best–and, if you ask a Cuban, we will tell you Capablanca was The Best. Jose Ramon Fonst was another star of his time. History of fencing so records. Baseball, boxing, volleyball, triathlon… Cubans have been fighting their way to Olympus for more than a century. And they’ll keep reaching that peak. It’s in our blood.
