Toni Pérez claims the role of families in promoting sports practice

The standing public pays an emotional tribute to the missing municipal sports coach Vicente Devesa Such 'Sarvacho'

 

Last night Benidorm experienced the tenth edition of the Sports Gala in the auditorium of the Cultural Center where 450 people gathered for the big night of Benidorm sports.

The event was attended by the mayor, Toni Pérez, and the Sports Councilor, Javier Jordá, who were joined by other members of the municipal corporation and the regional deputy José Ramón González de Zárate.

Javier Jordá, in charge of opening the event, acknowledged having learned “after meeting” many of the local athletes that sport “is passion, it is perseverance, commitment, respect for the opposite” as well as “getting up” when one falls and also “teamwork”.

The councillor thanked the families for “trusting Benidorm clubs” and the City Council “so that the kids play sports.” Jordá finally encouraged everyone present to continue transmitting, “as the sign that we have to follow” the values of sport in a city that, it should be remembered, has more than 3,000 federated athletes who, week after week, use the sports facilities. municipal.

After the mayor of Sports, the corresponding commemorative plaques were presented to the winners who, this year, have meant that Benidorm has won a world championship, a world record, and two European championships, 19 in Spain and 17 in the Region. All of this, without including second or third places, which defines the city as “much more than a global brand” of first place in the world, famous for its beaches, culture, climate or gastronomy.

The first mayor vindicated “the great family of sport” made up of athletes, technicians, and referees and also valued the importance of the athletes' families who must seek resources and time for the youngest to start practising sports. Toni Pérez also emphasized women's sports, which have great local roots and which have contributed and continue to contribute triumphs in modalities such as volleyball, basketball, etc. And he did not miss the opportunity to congratulate the women of Anémona and the young people of Double Love who, through sport, have known how to make their way in their personal development.

Finally, the mayor, as Jordá also did previously, paid tribute to the recently deceased municipal coach, Vicente Devesa Such 'Sarvacho', a great promoter of the sport who knew that in life you have to walk together” because “united we are stronger” if one “gives oneself to the society in which one believes and which one loves.” “Vicent, the mayor said, was much more than that, Vicente was 'un home bo i un amic'.
