Yulimar and Mayora are the country's flag bearers in Paris 2024

Both athletes won medals in the last Olympic event

Less than a month before the opening of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, the Venezuelan delegation already has its flag bearers for the largest sporting event in the world. Yulimar Rojas and Julio Mayora will be in charge of carrying the national pavilion in the French capital.

Let us remember that both athletes won medals in the last Olympic event, which was Tokyo 2020. Mayora won the silver medal and Rojas the gold medal, including the world record.

It should be noted that Yulimar Rojas will not be able to compete in the event due to an injury to his Achilles heel. However, to be the flag bearer of Venezuela at the Olympic Games, only qualification is required.

Likewise, Julio Mayora has just won the gold medal at the Santiago 2023 Pan American Games.
