First International Friendship Games Slated for May 17

Athletes from Chula Vista and Baja, California will compete in the City’s first International Friendship Games Saturday, May 17 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the U.S. Olympic Training Center. Archery and boxing exhibitions and a soccer tournament will be open to the public. Special appearances will be made by amateur boxers Rolando Perez and Chris Martin from the Farfan Training Center and Oscar Perez from the Alliance Training Center—both centers are located in Chula Vista. National City’s California Youth Athletic Association will also be represented.

Saturday’s events are intended to showcase Chula Vista—San Diego County’s second largest city--and its prestigious year-round Olympic training venue. The concept of the International Friendship Games was created by Chula Vista City Council member Rudy Ramirez.
“Chula Vista is an international city with incredible energy and potential,” said Ramirez. “These games have a value beyond athletic competition. They play a role in strengthening our working relationships and business partnerships, internationally.”
Soccer teams include: Chula Vista Rangers Soccer Club; Fundacion Real Madrid, from Ensenada; and Amateur Guadalajara, representing Tijuana. The archery exhibition will display the skills of athletes in training at the U.S. Olympic Training Center. A boxing exhibition featuring local boxing talent is slated for Saturday evening.
