Havana.- The Cuban swimmers Lorenzo Perez and Juan Castillo are tuning up their training to compete in the World Swimming Championships for people with disabilities in Mexico.
The Cuban athletes are executing the final phase of their training in Mexico, where they have clocked good times.
Perez, Paralympic champion in Rio de Janeiro-2016 and world record holder in the S6 100-meter freestyle, is expected to be in the finals of that category, as well as in the 50-meter freestyle contest.
For his part, Castillo, Para-Pan-American champion, is expected to swim for a medal in the S9 100-meter butterfly contest.
Swimming for athletes with disabilities is one of Cuba's priorities, considering that it contributes to those people's incorporation into society.
