Where am I supposed to cash this?
The Tecnoglass / ES Windows Foundation has rewarded several Colombian Olympians returning from this year’s Tokyo Olympics.
After Colombian Olympian Yuberjen Martinez returned to Colombia after a controversial (some say outrageous) decision by a judge that left the boxer without a medal, The Tecnoglass / E.S. Windows foundation, the nonprofit, charitable affiliate of Tecnoglass rewarded the athlete with a check for $50 million Colombian pesos, a sum the boxer said he would be sharing with his fellow teammates.
But when the representative, amplified copy of the check was presented, Yuberjen appeared baffled by the giant piece of cardboard, asking “where am I supposed to cash this?” After a laugh, Tecnoglass President Christian Daes quickly presented him with the actual check.
