Luis Hernández, who is FIVB Executive Vice President and of NORCECA, received her framed certificate presented by Thomas Bach, IOC president.

Mireya was a stand-out member of the Cuban women's teams that won the gold medal at the Olympic Games of Barcelona 1992, Atlanta 1996 and Sydney 2000.

OLY is just like PhD, MD and other post nominals and can be used on business cards, curriculum vitae, social media, in fact anywhere you use your name.

The World Olympians Association launched the OLY post-nominal letters initiative in November 2017. Since that time more than 10,000 Olympians worldwide have been granted the honour, which serves as a constant public reminder and recognition of an Olympian's achievements in the field of sport, as well as a recognition of their status in society and their commitment to furthering the Olympic ideals.

IOC President Thomas Bach was the first Olympian to officially receive the initials from WOA President Joël Bouzou who then invited all Olympians around the world to sign-up to use "OLY" after their names.

The World Olympians Association emphasizes:

"By participating at an Olympic Games, Olympians have achieved something unique and for that, they must be recognised. They are truly leaders and role models in society and as ambassadors of the Olympic Movement.

"That is why the OLY initiative is so important. Much like a doctor, a lawyer or a university professor, becoming an Olympian takes many years of hard work and requires a diverse range of skills. I believe this initiative will provide Olympians with the professional recognition they deserve."
