|RIO DE JANEIRO， July 13 (Xinhua) -- Latin America and the Caribbean are seeking to improve on the results they obtained four years ago at the Olympic Games in London， where the total the region won 58 medals.
Even though there were several disappointments among the Latin American and Caribbean athletes in London， the fact that this time they will be competing in their own continent suggests that the results could improve.

The Caribbean island achieved Olympic glory in four sports: boxing with Robeisy Ramirez and Roniel Iglesias， wrestling with Mijain Lopez， judo with Idalis Ortiz and shooting with Leuris Pupo.

Argentina's Sebastian Crismanich managed to win one gold medal in taekwondo while the Dominican Republic athlete Felix Sanchez won the 400 meters hurdle and Venezuela's Ruben Limardo took home the gold in the individual epee fencing competition.

UNITED NATIONS Julio Jones Black Jersey , Sept. 18 (Xinhua) -- United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres Monday stressed the role of the UN to help reshape "unproductive and unrewarding" finance and redirect investment to creating a better world for all.
