We’re a proud people. And, as we’re proud of ourselves, we’re also proud of our own, our kin. But that pride is not for nothing. It’s not vanity. We’ve had many stars in our sky, and many of those stars have shone brighter than most. Chess, fencing, baseball, volleyball, boxing, triathlon… Jose Raul Capablanca, Martin Dihigo, Teofilo Stevenson, Alberto Juantorena, Javier Sotomayor. You name a sport. We’ll tell you a star.
