Mexicali gymnast Alexa Moreno was selected Thursday as one of the half-dozen Mexican athletes who will be presented in two weeks with the National Sports Award.

The gymnast, who weeks ago earned her right to compete in the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo during the World Championship in Stuttgart, Germany, was selected by jury members at the National Commission of Physical Culture and Sports (aka Conade).
