LAUSANNE - Enrique Montesinos Delvaty, the president of the Cuban Sports Press Union and a vice-president of the continental section of AIPS America has died. He was 69.
The Association of International Sports Press Association (AIPS) said he died in Paris after attending the 80th Congress of the International Sports Press Association (AIPS) in South Korea.

His dedication to research won him the Jorge Enrique Mendoza Journalism Award for lifetime achievement awarded by the Cuban Sports Press Union and the Prize for Lifetime Achievement awarded jointly with the Cuban Institute of Sport (INDER).
At Granma where he spent his entire career, he was head of the sports department and deputy director of the newspaper’s digital edition.
