Due to Mexico’s pitiful performance in Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games, Federal Congresswoman Rosario Rodriguez, from Baja California, submitted a bill, in the Nation’s Senate, to ask for minimal requirements for those in charge of the National Commission of Sports and Physical Culture (Conade in Spanish) in order to “develop alternatives which may allow to improve the development and performance of Mexican athletes by means of an adequate direction from Mexico’s main sports organism”.

Rodriguez presides the  Public Education Services Commission in the House of Representatives and said that, to achieve her proposal, Article 20 of the General Law of Physical Culture and Sports, must be reformed, she said that CONADE Commissioner must pass certain filters and basic requirements to have an adequate performance in the position, since the current Commissioner, Alfredo Castillo, didn’t go through any kind of filters or assessment , he simply was   designed by President Peña, and  it has been proven that he was not the ideal  choice for National Sports Commisioner.

Mr. Castillo has no experience or background whatsoever regarding Sports Administration, and with a dubious police labor history, it’s amazing (to say the east) that President Peña appointed him as Sports Commissioner. Finally, she said that Mr. Castillo will be invited to appear before a Special Legislative Commission to explain and report about Mexico’s shameful role in Rio 2016 Olympics.
