Four athletes from Manizales are looking for resources to participate in the Frisbee Ultimate World Championship to be held in Germany. They are doing a collection to be able to travel.
These athletes started a campaign to collect resources, since they did not receive support from the Sports Secretariats of Caldas and Manizales.
"This sport does not have any support from government agencies, we have requested several entities, but they have denied us the help. The budget per player is around 10 million and we are collecting resources until July 8, "said Paulina Ospina, athlete.
These athletes sent requests to the secretariats. In Caldas they were told that for this 2019 the flying disc league does not have recognition of Coldeportes and that the Flyover club has recognition before the Sports Secretariat of Manizales.
Meanwhile, the Sports Secretariat of Manizales, said that it is the responsibility of the Federations to ensure the displacement of athletes representing the country.
If you want to help these athletes, you can do it in the following way.
