Mexico saw off its Winter Olympics team on Wednesday (January 31) hoping that its athletics will bring back a rare medal for the Latin American country at the Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.

The delegation of four athletes received the Mexican flag for the Opening Ceremony from Olegario Vazquez Rana, a representative of the country’s Olympic Sports Committee in Mexico City, who stated that the athletes were well prepared.

One of the athletes, Roberto Franco, will compete in the category of Freestyle Skiing, and believes he has a good shot at the finals.

Roberto Franco is the son of a Mexican father and an American mother and grew up in Sacramento, California. His father, Juan Jose, is also his coach who said he hopes this year’s Olympic Games will help popularise winter sports in Mexico.

Other members of Mexico’s delegation include Rodolfo Dickson who was born in Puerto Vallarta, but grew up in Canada and will compete in Alpine Skiing, Sarah Schleper who is originally from the United States, but will also compete for Mexico in Alpine Skiing, and German Madrazo who will compete in Cross-Country Skiing.
