Mexican cyclist Jessica Salazar finally stood firm in his decision not to go to the 2020 Tokyo Olympicsdespite the fact that the Mexican Cycling Federation offered the option of attending the joust in the speed test.
“Life was presenting me with different challenges, and emotionally I feel devastated, pI lost the illusion overnight, and as much as it hurts I have decided not to accept the call from the Mexican cycling federation to represent Mexico in the Olympic Games, and the answer is simple, they destroyed me emotionally and physically. I would like to be living my dream but I will now focus on my well-being and my healthSalazar declared.
After having renounced the omnium square where the Mexican Cycling Federation initially registered it, The cyclist had that offer from the federation that she will take one of the two Olympic tickets that Mexico has in that event.
“The federation offered me the place in search of trying to repair the damages caused and I appreciate the gesture, but unfortunately it has reached days before the opening of the Olympic Games, and I want you to know that this whole process comes from Rio de Janeiro 2016, so I have sacrificed many things, and I want you to know that it is not a decision made lightly but it is a most important determination of my life”, He indicated.
The athlete mentioned that her case is still in process before the Court of Arbitration for Sport and it will do so in order to create a precedent in Mexican sports.
“I will work to be one hundred percent and we will see you in Paris 2024, and for now my process before the CAS will continue since as a National Sports Award I feel convinced with the responsibility of making a precedent that no other Mexican athlete goes through what is happening and this everyday history is repeated in national sport, “he said.
