In just a few days, Venezuela will begin competing in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. From August 8 to August 24, 109 Venezuelan athletes will strut their stuff against some of the most highly regarded athletes in the world.
The Olympic softball competition is sure to be a hit! As the only team from Latin America who qualified during the Pan-American tournament last year, Venezuela will battle seven other national teams including the U.S. In fact, their first game will be against the United States on August 12, certainly a game you don’t want to miss! Watch the team being honored in Venezuela before their departure to China below.
