The most interesting point of the day of this Thursday 28 at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will arrive in the Argentine morning, in the Japanese night, when Argentina and Spain reissue the last final of the Basketball World Cup. For Sergio Hernández’s team it will be another tough test, after the bad start against Slovenia by the powerful Luka Doncic. The basketball team will deal with another difficult opponent, waiting to accommodate their situation in Group C, which is completed by Japan. To go to the quarterfinals, Argentina must be at least one of the two best third parties among the three groups that play the Games.
For hockey, the day will be double. Very early in Tokyo, the Lions will have a key duel against India, which can ensure the pass to the quarterfinals of the defending Olympic champions, who so far add a win, a draw and a loss. For their part, Las Leonas, will face local Japan with the intention of achieving a victory that will leave them well positioned in Group B, which for now they lead along with New Zealand.
In the Argentine morning it will be Delfina Pignatiello’s turn again, who will again jump into the Olympic pool. The Sanisidrense will compete in the qualifying rounds of the 800 meters, in search of leaving behind her performance below expectations in the 1500 meters. It will also be the turn of Santiago Grassi, national record, who will compete in the 100-meter butterfly tie.
