The Spanish K4 coach, Miguel García, today expressed his confidence that the Tokyo Olympics “will be held” and also that the Spanish boat will be “fighting for a medal”, for which his paddlers have returned to train in Seville, where he rehearses combinations to finalize the crew that will attend the competition in the Japanese city.

On the return of the K4 to the capital of Seville, García has pointed out: “We were finally able to resume work in this land that we like so much; because of the pandemic, we have not appeared here for a year, where we are back to work with exceptional weather, especially on these days so marked by snow. ”

The technician explained that the boat that will represent Spain in the Olympic event continues to “evolve”, whose crew will be chosen after various combinations. Today two K4s came out, one with Craviotto, Marcus, Arévalo and Toro, and the other with Adán, Garrote, Oriyés and Germade.

“We are in the process of training the boat in which every week we do three sessions in which the athletes change positions. I am very happy with the work that the paddlers do, they are all very involved. At the moment, the project is underway, we have many expectations placed on it and hopefully from now until March or April, that we close the boat, we can continue working with peace of mind, good sensations, without injuries, and that this damn virus will let us train in peace “, he commented.

Regarding the visit made yesterday by the president of the CSD, Irene Lozano, to the CEAR La Cartuja facilities, Miguel García has revealed that the political leader has transferred “tranquility” to them at this time of uncertainty that is experienced by the “demonstrations” of the population of Tokyo, and added that it “encourages” the fact that leaders provide information to “continue thinking” about the celebration of the Olympic Games as a “reality”.

“We keep getting up every day thinking that the Olympics are going to take place,” the coach has abounded, convinced that the prospects for the contribution of the vaccine thus reinforce it and has concluded: “Although it is true that the Japanese Government is posing a problem, which is understandable given the situation we are experiencing, I think that in the coming months We will have more positive information. We continue to think that the Olympics will be held and that we will play for the medals even more willingly due to the pandemic. ”

Miguel García aspire to achieve in Tokyo with the Spanish K4 500 his fifth Olympic medal as a coach, That would add to those obtained in K1 200 (Craviotto silver in London 2012 and bronze in Rio 2016) and K2 200 (Craviotto-Toro gold in Rio 2016) and K2 500 (Craviotto-Pérez Rial, gold in Beijing 2008).
