Chile’s Sports Minister Jaime Pizarro took an active part as he visited Laguna Los Morros in San Bernardo, training alongside the country’s water skiing team as they prepare for this year’s Pan American Games in Santiago.
During the visit the 59-year-old Pizzaro, a former footballer played 53 times for the Chile national team as a midfielder, participated in a water skiing practical class given by Felipe Miranda, the overall 2015 Pan American champion and 2013 and 2017 world champion.
“We’re in the vespers of amazing Games and you’ve been part of worldwide tournaments, Pan American and South American ones; so you do know the importance of participating as Chilean representatives in those events,” Pizzaro said.
“This is a wonderful discipline that has achieved a lot of medals for our country.”
