Due to a lack of airline tickets, the Venezuelan women's water polo team at Jorge Chávez International Airport in Lima, Peru, won the second place in the South American water sports championship Trujillo 2018.

At the time of embarkation on the plane on Tuesday, the airline's management did not allow him to leave because the trip stopped in Panama and those who were responsible for the purchase of tickets did not process Panamanian visas for athletes.

The Venezuelan competitors who lost the opportunity to participate in the Pan American Games in Lima 2019 came to the South American Water Sports Championships unbeaten and fought for the first place in the Brazilian national team.

This is not the first time that sporting delegations representing the country are affected by the problems with issuing air tickets.

Examples took place in South American volleyball at the U20 in Lima, in the Grand Prix women's volleyball finals, in the World Men's League debates, at the Women's World Championships in Pan American Fencing and in the Boxing Qualifiers of the Central American and Caribbean Games.
