Russia Demands to Clarify the Participation of Neutral Athletes

The delegation of this South American country is comprised of Gabriel Lugo and the Limardo brothers, Ruben, Francisco, and Jesus.

This team secured their spot in the Olympics after the World Cup in Spain, held in Georgia, which serves as the final qualifying event on the official calendar. This will be the first time that a trio of brothers represents Venezuela in an Olympic event.

Francisco, the oldest of the Limardo brothers, will be participating in his third Olympics, having competed in team events in Beijing 2008, and both individual and team events in Rio de Janeiro 2016.

Gabriel Lugo will become the 14th Venezuelan fencer to compete in the individual competition in Olympic history. The 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris will commence on July 26 and conclude on August 11.

On Tuesday, Pierre Moscovici, the president of the French Court of Auditors, reported that this international competition will cost between 3 and 5 billion euros.

His statements came on the same day that French economic authorities announced that their country's public deficit had reached 5.5 percent of GDP and public debt had reached 110.6 percent of GDP by the end of 2023.
