Cuba Already has 106 Tickets for the Olympic Games Beijing 2008.
A wire from the Cuban News Agency points out that the previous contribution was made by the wrestlers in Greek-Roman and free styles, with scenario in the Pan-American Championship of Colorado Sprint, United States, where they added five more opportunities to the five they had and to those 110 that the Caribbean island had.

Cuba still has the possibility to increase that figure with the boxers who starting from this Wednesday will combat for the qualifier in Trinidad and Tobago, where they will have their first opportunity, because the Cubans didn't attend the World Cup in Chicago last year.

The Cuban under-23 soccer team today leaves for the US city of Tampa, venue of Group A of the pre-Olympic finals of the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) to look for another ticket.

The sports with olympic tickets for Cuba are the athletics (32), baseball (24), diving (5), wrestling (10), archery (1), canoe (2), judo (5), weightlifting (6), pentathlon (1), rowing (9), taekwondo (5), shooting (3), cycling (1) and woman's volleyball (12).
