“The bats” got the title

The 5 football team for the blind competed in the 2nd IBSA World Grand Prix 2019 and managed to hold first place.


 Argentina is stepping hard in this sport . Such is so, that in Tokyo he managed to crown himself as  the best for the second consecutive season  in the Japanese Grand Prix. The rival of the final was England, and with two goals by Maximiliano Espinillo he surpassed him in regular time 2-0 to unleash the celebration.

 It was an ideal campaign for Los Batciélagos , as they won the five matches they played in Japanese lands. In an extremely outstanding tournament, they managed to beat each of the rivals who put themselves ahead. This was how they beat Thailand 4-1 in the premiere, and then beat the same rival of the final and with the same result: 2-0 to England. The third turn was from Turkey and again won the albiceleste, this time by the minimum, 1-0. Already in the semifinals, Argentina had to face Spain and without contemplations won him by 2 to 0, to reach the final match.

 Now, the national cast is focused on what is coming .  Copa America de San Pablo  between June 2 and 10, and then the Copa Tango in Buenos Aires  , from 20 to 24, always in June. All this will serve as preparation for the  Parapan American Games in Lima , Peru, in August.

The team was composed of: Darío Lencina and Germán Muleck (archers), and players Froilán Padilla, Nahuel López, Nahuel Heredia, Matías Olivera, Marcelo Panizza, Maximiliano Espinillo, Ignacio Oviedo and Brian Pereyra. The delegation was completed by coaches Martín Demonte, Germán Márquez, Claudio Falco, assistant Agustín Rojas and kinesiologist Juan Manuel Crespo.
