ATHLETES

YENEBIER
GUILLÉN BENÍTEZ

Not everyone in the Dominican Republic believes that Yenebier should be pursuing her dream of reaching the Olympic Games, but that will not stop the determined fighter from carrying on her family's male-dominated boxing lineage and prove the doubters wrong. A trip to Rio for Yenebier could produce the county's first ever female Olympic Games medal - her last chance to qualify will be during a tournament in China this June.
