The issue of the non-participation of Anthony Zambrano in the Bolivarian Games of Valledupar does not stop. The peasant insists that he is injured, but in his statements he makes it clear that he backed down compared to what he said last week.
“It is not an obligation to compete, because they have screwed me in other competitions, right here, so why do I have to go to that; I am not decided, I am looking to see what I can do,” Zambrano told the Cali media last week.

He backed out?
And I add: “It makes certain people sad here… It’s economics. There is never support, there is never anything… Nobody manipulates me, I rule because I am the one who runs, one is the one who is on the track, to earn a pittance.
Zambrano insists that he is injured, that due to the issue of a pubalgia is not in the Bolivarians.
Before, it was my little sister Caterine Ibargüen who fought and they told me to do it.
“I have a pubalgia. This year has not been easy due to injuries. You have to recover and now. There are times when one does not participate. One is not a robot, this time I can’t do it”, he commented on Caracol’s Vbar.
“I feel sad for not competing in the country, in the Bolivarian Games. Sometimes one trains a lot to improve and recharges the muscle. It is a pubalgia in the left leg, ”he declared.
The silver medalist in the 400 meter dash at the Tokyo Olympics clarified that He was not fighting for his money, but for that of the athletes who are not supported.
“I’m not fighting for my money, thank God people give me everything I need for my preparation. I say it for the others, for those who cannot have these aids. It’s time to say it. Before, it was my little sister Caterine Ibargüen who fought and they told me to do it”, commented.
“I’m fine with those supports. When one reaches that level is referred. Many young people want to be supported. I always explain to them that one must make an effort. They tell me that there are no sponsorships and I told them that I was going to talk, that’s why I did it with the Minister and with Ciro (Solano, president of the COC)”, he said.
The Thread Theme
Regarding his statements about the decision not to go to Bolivarianos, Zambrano insisted that he is a human being, an athlete who is injured.
“The one who rules on the track is me. They say that Zambrano does thousands of things. If I’m injured, I’m injured. I am a human being, when I am injured, I am injured. This year many circumstances have happened and just as I can have a successful year, I can have a bad one. I’m not backing down. It’s the truth. I said what I said and nothing else, neither backwards nor forwards, “he said.
In the same way, the issue of the thread was touched on, to which he referred last week when he assured that there were leaders who did not take it into account.
“In this time nobody makes me thread because they have me as a reference. I said it for other times because there were directors who did not do things well, the previous ones screwed me over because I could not make the mark. Today the leaders are others and everything has changed. I meet with them, I talk to them and it’s normal. They tell me that they give me $17 million, that’s a lie, my department and the COC give me support. Don’t misunderstand things,” he declared.
“I have been very injured. I’m not afraid of any rival, because I want to be well. Many say that I earn a pittance, so what? Yes, I earn a pittance. The idea is to solve and find a solution to things. You can’t fight, you have to be reasonable and talk about what is,” added the champion of the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, Peru.
He assured, finally, that although sometimes he gets angry with the leaders, because the issue is resolved with dialogue.
“Sometimes one gets angry with the leaders, these are things that happen. Nobody manipulates me, the one who runs is me. They understand me, sometimes we fight and that’s normal, but right there it’s solved. I’m not afraid of anyone. They throw good things and grab the bad ones”sentenced.
