The NOC of Ecuador has become the first NOC to organise an Olympic gala certified as carbon neutral, during which the best athletes of the year were honoured. The gala was held on 19 December 2018 in Guayaquil, in the presence of 200 guests, athletes and officials. On this occasion, Gustavo Manrique, President of Sambito S.A. Soluciones Ambientales Totales, presented the carbon neutral certification to NOC President Augusto Morán, and broadly outlined the initiative, which is part of the awareness-raising campaign led by the NOC’s Sport and Environment Commission. Tamara Salazar (weightlifting) and Andres Chocho (athletics) were named the Best Athletes of 2018, while Neisi Dájomes (weightlifting) and Óscar Patín (athletics) won in the youth category.
