Meanwhile, Venezuelan Juan Jose Maita will speak about the identification and selection of sports talent through a unit created for this purpose in the Venezuelan state of Anzoategui.
The impact of technology on physical activity, the evolution of chess styles, and the promotion of chess training in Venezuela will be also analyzed by other specialists.
Physical education and the relationship between environment and society will be also discussed, along with an editorial exchange regarding sports magazines.
