Roniel Iglesias is gold, and boxing, the flagship sport, is on the move. A prize for effort and consecration. Congratulations champion. Cuba expects a lot from Cuban boxing, he said.
After these victories, Cuba moved up to 14th place in the medal chart, with four gold, three silver, and four bronze medals, for 11 so far.
