Piñerúa was also honored with the Order José Félix Rivas of the first class, a reward for young people who, among others, made a significant contribution to the country and its citizens in the fields of culture, art, science and sport.

 

From „Gastón Portillo” gymnasium, the body of a volleyball player was transferred to El Guapo, a town where a 25-year-old Piñerúa was born and where his family will give him eternal rest.
