We may have taken a step backwards towards our medal aspirations with the loss to Japan on Thursday, but I have complete confidence that our boys will go into Sunday’s game with even more hunger, desire and determination. Meanwhile, on Friday, the entire Spanish delegation was looking quite sharp (surprising given the other clothes that Bosco designed for us, which we’ve already seen) at the opening ceremony. I like the hat, the belt and the shoes.

On Tuesday, the team had a closed training session in the morning, and received the afternoon off. At the training session, the starters did recovery work and put themselves in the capable hands of the fisios, while the rest of the players partook in a normal training session.
Via twitter, we found out that Javi (!!!) spent the afternoon with his mother: “in the end, the best plan, Mamá!!!” (yes, he did use three exclamation marks!!!). And since Fortu is his mother, she’s more than worthy of it!!!
