President Mauricio Macri visited the Olympic village on Wednesday (October 3) and spoke to the young athletes .

“Today is one more step. To see so many young people ready to compete and this atmosphere one can start to feel in this village, which will really be a community of new friends who will be able to become that and it’s already a goal achieved. Now you have to compete and clearly, you can not always win, but most importantly you surely have all trained, many hours, many days, to compete with professionalism, with seriousness, representing Argentina that should be a rarely seen honour.”

Some 4,000 15 to 18 year-old athletes from 206 countries will participate in 32 sports.
