CANCUN, Mexico, March 11, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NexusTours will be heading to Tokyo, Japan for the 2020 Summer Olympics to represent Mexico with windsurfing athlete Ignacio Berenguer. The destination management company is sponsoring Ignacio Berenguer for the monumental event, marking the first time a windsurfer from Cancun has ever qualified for the Olympic Games.
“At Nexus, we recognize the value that sports bring and how they enhance people’s lives. That is why we are proud to sponsor a talented athlete such as Ignacio, who has demonstrated his strong values that align with ours as an organization. We have been supporting Ignacio’s career as a windsurfer for two years and are immensely impressed with his passion and motivation in reaching his goals. It is an honor to now be able to accompany him on his journey to Tokyo,” said Ruben Gutierrez, President of Sunwing Destination Services/ NexusTours.
Ignacio competed in the Miami World Cup Series which took place in 2020 from January 19th to the 25th. He was part of the RS:X Men's Windsurfer category, in which he faced other international and Mexican competitors and came in at second place, qualifying for the Olympics.
“This achievement was possible due to the support of my sponsors. Thanks to them, I am able to carry out international training prior to competitions and focus on improving my techniques and being prepared for important events. Prior to the Miami series I spent a month in Europe training with the Spanish team, which helped me get in shape and ready for this competition, “said Berenguer.
