The Rocasa Gran Canaria saved yesterday a tricky situation that threatened, even, the continuity of the Gran Canaria team in the European women’s handball competition. The ravages of the storm Filomena in the capital of Spain thwarted the trip of the Teldense team to the capital of Spain on Tuesday evening, making it impossible to comply with the schedule to travel to Bosnia to dispute their double confrontation with the Grude, corresponding to the Last 16 of the EHF Cup that will finally take place tomorrow and Saturday.
The decisive efforts of both the President of the Government of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, and the General Director of Sports, Manolo López, and the efforts of Binter, have made it possible to resolve the crisis in record time.
Finally, the Rocasa travels directly this morning on a charter flight chartered by the island company from Gran Canaria to the Balkan lands. This circumstance also mitigates the fatigue in the ranks of the island team, as his initial travel plan forced him to cover a route of 16,440 kilometers, between roundtrip (Gran Canaria-Madrid-Istanbul-Sarajevo-Grude).
The Teldense entity thanked yesterday for the “support received from the Government of the Canary Islands, and in particular from its president Ángel Víctor Torres and its general director of Sports Manuel López, who from the first moment joined forces with the club and with a reference company in the Canary Islands such as Binter to make possible a journey that gives us life ”.
