Paula Pareto of Argentina is Athlete Role Models (ARM) for Judo at the Buenos Aires Youth Olympic Games, a role that is important. Pareto as she is walking in the aisles of the games, taking advantage of every opportunity to interact with the judokas, their coaches but also the Argentinean public that came to watch the judo competitions.

For Paula Pareto, the challenge is important because in addition to being ARM, she is also the heroine of a whole country: “The whole world is present in Buenos Aires. I am very proud of that. I would have liked to have the chance to participate in such an event when I was younger, but the YOG did not exist yet. Here I am at the disposal of the athletes and I am here to support them. This is a great chance and a great honor. It’s fantastic for South America and Argentina. This gives us a great opportunity to share our culture.”

Paula Pareto has just won the bronze medal at the Baku World Championships à couple of weeks ago. Already a world and Olympic gold medalist, she has not yet made the decision to stop her career and she will be present at the Cancun Grand Prix in a few days. It is therefore still too early for her to say what will be her life after her sporting career.
