The champion of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, two-time world champion in Greco-Roman wrestling Ismael Borrero left the Cuban team in competitions in Mexico, reports the BBC.
The Cuban team participates in the Pan American Wrestling Championship, which takes place in Acapulco. Borrero disappeared from the local team, his whereabouts are unknown.
The Cuban Sports Institute described the escape of a 30-year-old athlete as a manifestation of low discipline in the country’s sports system.
Borrero won gold in Rio de Janeiro in the 59kg weight class and also won the 2015 and 2019 World Championships. At the Tokyo Games, the wrestler competed in the up to 67kg class, due to the coronavirus he lost in the second fight.
This is not the first time that Cuban athletes have escaped in recent months. In March, members of the Cuban sailing team Laura Manso and Carlos Miguel Esposito fled to the United States, and long jumper Lester Lesky disappeared from the team’s place at competitions in Spain.
