A great sports party was relived in the Cuna del Mágico today with the start of the karate of the JUDUCA 2023 University Sports Games.

“I am excited because I still have to participate in two categories” said the national karate fighter.

And indeed, minutes later Helen, together with Andrea Ruiz and Fátima Rivas, won a gold medal for the UES in the team kata category, unleashing the euphoria of the UES bar.

Second place went to the National University of Distance Education (UNED), from Consta Rica.
