Oropesa won the gold medal in the Giraldilla international tourney held in Havana, and the gold medal too in the mixed double of the Central American and Caribbean Games, in the Mexican state of Veracruz, together with Osleni Guerrero – Cuba's number one (men), but in Pan American Festival in Mexico she was out of the podium.


Oropesa and Guerrero (Havana) keep coming closer in the zeal of jumping in the world ranking.

Competing in the Pan American Games in Toronto, Canada, in July 2015, is a dream for Oropesa, who was chosen among the best the athletes in the province of Holguin last 2014.


Oropesa that praises Guerrero said, "He's a good player that backs me up very much, he puts it all to the team game; as he's got a high competitiveness we feel sure while playing with him. He's without a doubt one of the best players in the area that has been little by little going higher in the world ranking."


Taimara Oropesa Pupo, that is originally from the municipality of Holguin, says her family's aid and the good preparation she has got in the national draft have contributed much to her to rise in this discipline.
