Peru intensify workouts ahead of World Grand Prix
Karla Ortiz, one of the most experienced athletes of this young Peruvian team at only 23 years of age, said: "The Grand Prix is a big challenge for us; our team is very young, with many girls who still belong in our junior team. We are training very hard everyday because we want to surprise our rivals and make Peruvians proud."
