Beyond Politics

While the Cuban exile community continues to divide itself on exactly where to stand politically when it comes to the upcoming Juanes concert in Cuba, here's some news beyond politics.

Cuban athlete Leonel Suarez and American Trey Hardee (above) embraced after completing events in the Decathlon at the IAAF World Championships in Athletics in Berlin. Yesterday, Suarez won the silver medal for Cuba, while Hardee won Gold and is planning to party soon in Austin, Texas.

Cuba has, so far, won 4 medals (1 Gold, 2 Silver, 1 Bronze) in this year's competition (ranking in the top 10 of participating nations), and has remained in the top 10 rankings since 1983, ahead of developed nations like Spain, France and the U.K.
