Coronavirus in the Canary Islands: Tara Pacheco and Patricia Cantero retain their Olympic place by 2021 – La Provincia


The Spanish Sailing Federation confirmed that those athletes who have been selected to attend the Olympic Games will retain their place despite the postponement of Tokyo from 2020 to 2021.

“That place is yours, while those classes that are in the selection process will continue with it,” said Santiago López-Vázquez, director of Olympic preparation for the federal body.

Thus, the Gran Canaria sailors Tara Pacheco and Patricia Cantero continue to keep the passport for the Japanese appointment in their pocket. The first will compete in the Nacra 17 class with Florian Tittrel, while the second forms a crew with Silvia Mas in the women’s 470, a couple recently announced as the representative of Spain in the Olympic competition.
