Football at the summit!

I remember Evo Morales (Bolivian President) playing football at Chacaltaya's summit. Just to show the FIFA chairmen that football games shouldn't be banned in our high Altitude Andean Capital cities... La Paz in Bolivia and Quito in Ecuador.

Right!, they said altitude could affect football players' health and perfomance. I'm so glad this decision didn't have any weight at the end.

2014, the year of the World Cup, this time in your country, Brasil. Can't wait to watch it!

Nice pic Paulo!

Re: Football at the summit!

Well Chacaltaya's summit isn't big enough for a fotball match hehehe

I believe it happened in Sajama's summit! That is huge and certainly fits the game :)

Of course, a lot higher (1.000 meters!)...hehe

About the cup, really don't mind with the sport, I think ours is so much fun hehehe

This is an old photo, uploading again to "re-do" all my mountain pages. Hard work but I have to be busy at times like these so I don't go crazy...

See ya brother!
