    For its part, in swimming, two athletes classify by universality, a man and a woman. The country’s options are: Alondra Ortiz, Beatriz Padrón, Alberto Vega and Guido Montero.

    “To define the representatives, the one with the highest score in the ranking of the International Swimming Federation will be taken,” indicated the National Olympic Committee.


    Four more Costa Ricans will also seek to reach Paris in judo. These are Diana Brenes, Sebastián Sancho, Ignacio Sancho and Julián Sancho. The qualifying period ends June 23.

    Costa Rica could also have a presence in the wrestling and BMX Freestyle disciplines.In the first, the option is Maxwell Lacey, who will seek a ticket in phase three of the 2024 World Qualification Tournament to be held in Istanbul, Turkey, from May 9 to 12.
