Mexican sports will launch the National System of High Performance, a new sports plan with the purpose of obtaining a better performance at the Olympic Games in London 2012.

Director of the National Committee of Physical Culture and Sports, Carlos Hermosillo, presented on Tuesday the report of the Mexican delegation at the 2008 Olympics and he said they will work mainly in the training and hiring of best coaches in the world for some disciplines.

Together with President of the Mexican Olympic Committee Felipe Munoz and Mission Chief Carlos Padilla, Hermosillo and general deputy of Quality for Sports Jorge Camacho responded this way to President Felipe Calderon's request of a restructuring of Mexican sports.

"We have been working for eight months to improve our sports for the purpose of London 2012 where we will have the best results in the history of the Olympic Games," Hermosillo said in a press conference.

The plan presented by Hermosillo includes the creation of the Mexican School of Sports Development, the consolidation of the Mexican Institute of Sports Science and a review of the coaches' technical abilities.

"We will improve the efficiency of the athletes with the creation of the Mexican Institute of Sports Science where researchers will help the high performance athletes," Hermosillo said.

Hermosillo also emphasized the incorporation of foreign coaches in disciplines like boxing, march and archery among other sports where Mexican athletes have qualities and historical records.
