Roberto Gilbert has a broad arena in the world of Guayasense sports, from sportsman to president of Fedeguayas. For him, the situation that crosses the governing body of the sport of the province with the sporting scenes, is of extreme alertness. Although he does not intend to point out the board headed by Pierina Correa, he does believe there was inexperience.
“I vote because everyone thinks they are the bad guys in the movie (Correa, owner of Fedeguayas, and Rosa Rada, administrator), but it’s like calling a journalist to operate a heart; they did what they could best within their capabilities, but suddenly the position was big, “he told EXPRESO.
But Gilbert goes further, believes that this is an issue that can be remedied with the help of various institutions, not only those who are involved with sports (Municipality of Guayaquil, Governor and even Prefecture of Guayas).
“If it is necessary to squeeze hours a day, I am willing to help 3 or 6 months to the Secretary of Sport, Andrea Sotomayor, without any salary, with my people and qualified personnel of the Federation. I do not want to go out and get people out, I just want to give ideas of how things are done, “he added.
For the doctor and former president of Fedeguayas, the Olympic track Jacobo Bucaram Elmhalim (in the Modelo stadium) is a priority and he argues that the show that Colombian artist Shakira will give in the coming days can be a starting point to start fixing , at least, some lanes.
“This will be fixed soon and we’ll put in a little lane ‘thanks Shakira’ and you have to go yell at the stadium, ‘Shakira the track, Shakira the track’; With that income the track can be arranged in less than 15 days. I parked the long jump lane in four days, “he said.
Gilbert recognizes that with his 67 years, he has also made a mistake, but that solutions must be sought. “We have been athletes all our lives and we are still, we are passionate and we have also screwed up.”
In the end he remembers that the hand he offers is not to support the leadership of Fedeguayas, but rather for the sport. “You do not have to make firewood from the fallen tree. This is not to help them, we have to help Guayas and the sport. We are losing the opportunity to be international headquarters and there, silver is lost too. It is an income for everyone, from the shoe cleansers to the athletes, “he closed. (I)
