Mexican chief mission in Beijing 2008 Carlos Padilla Becerra said on Friday that Mexico will need some 10 years to achieves its best performance in the Olympic Games.

Padilla told Xinhua that he wishes Mexico achieve in London 2012 the best results in its history, like the president of the National Commission of Physical and Sports Culture Carlos Hermosillo said 10 days ago.

Mexico won in China three gold and one bronze medals, and it was the forth best performances in its history, but far from the ones of London 1948 (2-1-2), Mexico 1968 (3-3-3) and Los Angeles 1984 (2-3-1).

"For those who are on sports, we know that four years is not enough, there are many things to do to reach the success," Padilla said.

Padilla said that the high performance is responsibility of the sports authorities during the Olympic cycle, and it is necessary that the federations could work in a better organized and coordinated way with the authorities of the country.

"Those who are inside the national sports, must be honest and recognize that one of the big failures is the federations' lack of coordination and in the other hand the lack of support and development of the coaches in different sports," Padilla said.

Padilla said that one of the positive strategies of Beijing 2008 was the hiring of more foreign coaches.

The new strategy that Conade wants is that foreign coaches leave school here and to be replaces by Mexicans, Padilla said.

Padilla said that Mexico should take advantage of the sports advances of Cuba to make an improvement of the national coaches.

"I see a very hard time for London 2012. It is difficult to achieve it on the following games, it is complicated. The miracles do not exist. The most important is to give the first step," Padilla said.
