With effort, discipline, perseverance and the desire to succeed, the Mexican delegation obtained 208 prizes, including 60 gold medals.

The spirit of triumph, the sensation and taste of victory, is increasingly present in Mexican athletes.

The word WIN is part of the Mexican mentality.

This new competitive attitude in all Mexicans is largely due to the increasingly prominent performance of Mexican athletes.

Their character, effort and dedication remind us all that we are able to achieve what we propose, it encourages us to work, persevere and achieve our goals.

Thank you very much to all of you. I wish you every success in the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro 2016; let it be Mexico’s greatest sporting event yet.
