A group of 22 athletes will swim for Venezuela in the upcoming edition of the South American Games to be held in Chile, from March 7 to 8.

The president of the Venezuelan Federation of Watersports (Feveda), Lourdes Goncalves, said the national team includes five competitors for diving and another four for open water swimming.

Goncalves highlighted the level of the South American tournament in which will participate, apart from Venezuela, Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Colombia, delegations that have progressed in various disciplines.

The group of athletes competing in the open water swimming mode are traveling this Thursday to Chile with the aim of getting used to the cold water.

Recently, at the 2013 Bolivarian Games, held in Peru, Venezuela shone in swimming with 25 gold, 13 silver and 11 bronze medals.

The Venezuelan Olympic Committee (COV) estimates the national delegation of 400 athletes will rank among the top positions of this sporting event.

A total of 14 countries will join in the 2014 South American Games, whose schedule includes 31 disciplines.
