Image taken on May 13, 2016 shows Olympic athlete Lady Ruano taking part in a training session in preparation for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, in the city of Bogota, capital of Colombia. Although Lady Ruano takes 23 years practicing table tennis, her Olympic dream began to take shape till five years ago. After an eight-year sports recess, Lady, who is 35, returned to the tables to make clear that persistence is the most important value in sport. Currently, Lady Ruano is the eighth best table tennis player in Latin America and 228th in the world, an important position if you consider that table tennis is one of the sports with greater participation of athletes in the world.
