It’s a first for Colifata, which just broadcast live from a football match at the prestigious San Lorenzo stadium in Buenos Aires. Cristian and Diego – two patients – served as sportscasters, bringing the match to life for television viewers from their media booth.

Since last year, the club San Lorenzo de Almagro has shown a willingness to include members of Colifata in different events and to train them in the art of sports commentary.
