On June 28, he deserted the Cuban expedition that was going to participate in a competition in Castellón and, after contacting the Spanish Ana Peleteirothe Spanish bronze athlete in Tokyo in this same discipline, brought it to the attention of the Spanish authorities.

Peleteiro became interested in the case and urged José Manuel Franco, president of the Higher Sports Council, to submit it to the Interior and Justice speed up the procedures as much as possible.

The young athlete has been training in Guadalajara for a couple of months with Iván Pedroso, accompanying Yulimar Rojas, Peleteiro, Héctor Santos, Fátima Diamé, Tessy Ebosele, Alexis Copello and Changzhou Huang among other elite jumpers.

Díaz, who will turn 21 on February 23, could already participate in the Paris 2024 Olympics since he would have already turned three years old required by World Athletics when changing nationality.
