The Spanish Federation of Sports for the Blind (FEDC) held its annual gala on Thursday, December 15, in which a tribute was paid to athletes, technicians, entities and journalists, who have worked this year to advance the inclusion of different sports disciplines and promote sport among the youngest as a way of social integration.

The event, which took place at the headquarters of the ONCE General Directorate in Madrid, was attended by the president of the Higher Sports Council, José Manuel Franco; the president of the ONCE Social Group and the Spanish Paralympic Committee, Miguel Carballeda; and the president of the FEDC, Ángel Luis Gómez. Prominent blind athletes and technicians from the Federation itself also gathered.

And we wanted to be there to accompany them and convey Yllana’s characteristic gestural humor to them.

During the gala, held under the motto ‘Towards an inclusive sport. Earn the goal’, different plaques were awarded in recognition of the effort, support and achievements achieved during the last year of competition. And the career of athletes and entities that for years have demonstrated their commitment to sport practiced by blind or visually impaired people was awarded.
