To enjoy August, very hot, too hot

Friends the month of August promises speaking about sport and it does so from the local and national point of view. Local because in our County City takes place at the same time two sports tournaments that are grabbing the attention of many fans.



They are the Tournament Football 4, and the seventh edition of the Volleyball League My Neighborhood Champion, the football competition, played on Monday and Wednesday nights, involving eight teams will enter in August in their final straight, the stage of four Final, semi-final and final, and has really met expectations.


For its part Volleyball is taking temperature and four teams give life to the contest, the champion of Jaruco, Bainoa, Caraballo and a cast of Campo Florido, and as is traditional the good level of competition does the rest.


This is the way the local sport, but in the international arena will be a lot of sporting activity starting with the world championship of athletics of London whose main dish will be the retirement of the living legend of the speed Usaín Bolt, who will run for the last time in a great competition now in 100 meters and the short relays, as the Jamaican greased lightning gave up 200 meters.


There Cuba will intervene with a team that has at least two aspirations of medals, in Denia Caballero and Yarisley Silva, the rest little to say.


Also on August 5 begins in our country the 57th edition of the National Baseball Series whose main novelty must be admitted, is Victor "the controversial" Mesa who will lead Industriales.

The baseball series will have three other mentors debutantes who were stars in the Cuban baseball, Orestes Kindelán that will do with his Santiago de Cuba, Jose Raul Delgado who will command Sancti Spíritus and Pedro Luis Lazo that heads in Pinar del Río.


On the other hand is the beginning of the European leagues of football, and the dispute on August 8 in Macedonia Super Cup of Europe between Real Madrid, champion of the Champions League and Manchester United, winner of the Europa League.

Then, on 11 and 14 if there are no last-minute changes, we will see faces in the world football classic Real Madrid and Barcelona in the Super Cup of Spain and again we will have the Cristiano-Messi duel.


And from August 12 start the European Leagues that will hurry their calendars because 2018 is the year of the World Cup football in Russia. In Spain Real Madrid and Barcelona leave as favorites, in Italy Juventus in Milan, Naples and Rome have options, in Germany only Bayern that seems to compete against itself, and France the Paris Saint Germaín as the defending champion Monaco sold to almost all its stars and has Kylian Mbappé on the exit ramp. While in England the most balanced league of all, there will be good fight between Chelsea, Manchester United and City, Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal.


Although I could mention sports and events, these are the ones that will steal the attention of the fans of Jaruco, August will give us sport of the good, here in our city, in the country and in the world, for my part invite you to join the sports show and enjoy with family, with a beer or a good soft drink or cold juice because friends this heat is as hard as what is looming in sports, what do you think?
