Limardo is not only doing this work alone, but 20 other members of the Venezuela National Fencing Team are also doing it. In Polish, Limardo said that we are delivery riders. Limardo won the Olympic title eight years ago. He became the first fencer in Latin America to do so since Ramon Fontes of Cuba in 1904. He is also the second gold medalist in Venezuela. The boxer Francesco won the title 44 years before he became the Olympic champion.
Do jobs after training
These young swordsmen from Venezuela gather five days a week in an old workshop. All are in white uniform, with their national flag on it. At the gate, bicycles and green cool bags are waiting for them. All the swordsmen finish their training, take a quick shower and then get ready for delivery.Read also:

Limardo said that we get very little money in Venezuela, because there is a crisis there. At the same time, the epidemic has changed everything. There is no competition here. The Tokyo Olympics were postponed for a year and sponsors are saying that they will start paying from the new year. For this reason, we have to make money on such a road. Limardo walks 50 kilometers on a cycle every day and he earns around 100 euros a week. Limardo, the father of two children, says that it is going well with our training. We can say that this is an extension of training.
