Look who decided to show up and show some support for Chavecito in the run-up to the October presidential election:
Big-league baseballer Magglio Ordóñez and Formula 1 racer Pastor Maldonado turned out on the ‘Cito’s side. Sport is just one of the many things that have been on the up-and-up in the land of Bolívar since the revolutionary president was first elected in ’98.
And speaking of sports, I’d be remiss if I didn’t post this:
Venezuelan fencing champion Rubén Limardo got special honors from his president in addition to his Olympic gold medal: a tricolor sash and a replica of Bolívar’s sword. A treasure the epée virtuoso is sure to cherish!
