The CRESO Group program (*Spanish for Creando Sueños Olímpicos) (Creating Olympic Dreams) launched the corporate book “GLORIES: Going for the Gold”, a compendium comprising the 70-year history of the Dominican Republic in all Olympic Games.
The book was launched last night, during an event hosted in the Piantini Hall of the J.W. Marriott Hotel, headed by Mr. Felipe Vicini, CRESO Chairman.
A plethora of personalities attended the event, as testimony of its significance.
During his presentation speech, Vicini stressed the value of the book’s content, a luxury-edition compendium, which comprises the entire history of the Dominican athletes that have made our nation proud in the Olympic events, but more especially to the Summer Olympic medalists.
“Each of these athletes have made us immensely proud”, Vicini said, after emphasizing that it is their accomplishments, which drives us “onward and forward”.
He quoted several past and present leaders, such as Frank Hatton, Juan Ulises (Wiche) García Saleta, Emil Kasse Acta, Roque Napoleón Muñoz, José Joaquín Puello, Luis Mejía and other renowned Olympic leaders, for their devotion and commitment in the best interest of the Dominican Sports Organization.
CRESO is a non-profit organization that consists of the Dominican business community that invests in the development of a high-performance olympic athletic platform, accompanied by academic training of the athletes. VICINI, together with the Dominican Olympic Committee, is responsible for creating CRESO and achieving the involvement of 9 other leading companies that also invest in this program.
