The Peruvian delegation begins to leave the country at the top within the Valledupar 2022 Bolivarian Games. María Luisa Doig won the silver medal this Thursday in fencing in the women's individual épée modality.

Doig made outstanding presentations within his participation. After reaching the quarterfinals, she managed to defeat the Colombian Alejandra Piedrahita 15-9 and the Venezuelan Lizze Asis 15-11.

In the final she had to compete against the Colombian María de los Ángeles Jaramillo – who came with a victory over the Paraguayan Gabriela Montserrat, however, was defeated by a score from 13 to 15.

It should be noted that before raising the silver medal, María Doig stated in statements to El Comercio that “We are going to bring medals and more happiness to the country. It is a responsibility, a national representation and I take it as such, beyond the fact that it does not directly influence the Olympic cycle.”

Now, after his participation in Colombia, Doig will seek to qualify for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games directly through the world ranking so as not to have to do it like the last time through a Pre-Olympic.
