As was feared and expected, Cuba ousted Colombia from second place in the medal table of the XXIII Central American and Caribbean Games Barranquilla 2018 during the competitions held on Tuesday, on the 13th day of the contest and only three of the day of the closure.

The Cuban athletes, who on closed Tuesday competitions with 54 gold medals, one less than the host country, faced with strength the final challenges of the following day, which in the end would allow them to collect a bountiful harvest, enlivened by the heartfelt notes of the glorious Cuban hymn, which was played 11 times.
