On Tuesday in Puriscal many celebrated the victory of Andrea Vargas at the Central American and Caribbean Games 2018, but in the midst of so much excitement, it did not come as a surprise to those who have followed her, as most of the country.

Although they did not expect the gold medal that the young woman got in the 100-yard hurdles, they did know that such a success was a matter of time.

Neighbors and relatives have witnessed the efforts of Andrea and her sister, Noelia, because when they talk about one of the Vargas they end up mentioning the other.

Early mornings and afternoons training wherever and regardless of weather conditions were signals for the Puriscaleños. “It’s not surprising because you know there’s a lot of sacrifice and it’s not something new, it was only to wait for something big, she really deserved it,” said Adriana Guzmán, who has lived next door to the house where Andrea grew up.
