On the 8th of May, Alejandro Ortiz, alumni from the 2022 promotion, took part in the inter-collegiate tournament representing the CCB. The event was held in the city of Pereira, and several schools from different cities in the country took part in the event. At the end of the event, 248 medals were awarded to each participant. Alejandro Ortiz won 5 bronze medals in: 200m in breast, 50m breast, 4×50 mixed, 4×100 mixed and 4×200 freestyle.

“The training sessions I enjoy the most are the activities we do outside like normal training, which are not so much training intensively, but rather enjoying it. On the days that we do relays which involve the whole group and it brings out the competitiveness in everyone, it’s something that is cool to do as it’s something that doesn’t come around very often,” Alejandro revealed. 

On the other hand, during the competition, Alejandro tells us that “It was a bit stressful” as he was in the middle of his IB exams at the time “It was a lot of stress during the competition, but it didn’t stop me from doing well. During the tournament, I try to stay calm, I always try to keep my cool and not to think about the outcome but to give my best in the competition”.

Congratulations Alejandro on your achievements in swimming!

“Los entrenamientos que más disfrutó son las actividades que hacemos por fuera como en el entreno normal, que no es entrenar tan intensamente, si no disfrutar. Los días que hacemos relevos que involucran a todo el grupo y saca la competitividad en cada uno, es algo que es chévere hacer ya que no se hace muy frecuente.” Reveló Alejandro. 

Por otro lado, durante la competencia Alejandro nos cuenta que “Fue algo estresante” ya que en su momento estaba en mitad de sus exámenes IB “Fue un estrés que me cargó durante la competencia, pero no impidió que me fuera bien. Durante la competencia, trato de mantenerme tranquilo, siempre trato de calmarme y no pensar en el resultado sino en dar lo mejor en la competencia.”

¡Felicidades Alejandro por sus logros en la natación!
