As part of the celebration of the 1000 days remaining for the next Pan American and Parapan American Games in Santiago 2023, this morning the remodeled multi-court located in Plaza Buzeta in the Cerrillos district was inaugurated.
Different authorities from the sports world came to the multi-court: the Minister of Sports, Cecilia Pérez; the executive director of Santiago 2023, Felipe De Pablo; the mayor of the Municipality of Cerrillos, Arturo Aguirre; the vice president of the Chilean Olympic Committee, Aquiles Gómez; the president of the Paralympic Committee of Chile, Ricardo Elizalde; the metropolitan regional director of the National Institute of Sports, Luis Oliva; and the national director of the National Disability Service, Francisco Subercaseux.
The remodeling that was in charge of the Santiago 2023 Corporation, aimed to recover the space to carry out outdoor activities and contribute to the sports activities of the residents of Cerrillos, a district where the Pan American and Parapan American Village will be located.
The head of the Sports Ministry, Cecilia Pérez, commented that the delivery of this court "demonstrates the commitment that exists between society, neighbors and our high-performance athletes." In addition, she stressed that the infrastructure legacy of the Games will allow everyone to enjoy sport in “less than three years from one of the most important sporting events” that Chile has ever received.
For his part, the CEO of Santiago 2023, Felipe De Pablo, was satisfied with the inauguration of the public sports space and declared: "I am happy to be showing, in one way or another, the progress and milestones that allow the community to know and get closer to the Games."
The delivery of the court is part of the legacy that Santiago 2023 wants to leave to the country and the community, and they will continue working to leave traces in the public and private spheres of sport, in face of the 1000 days remaining for the first Pan American and Parapan American Games that our country will organize.
