The Condor of America

Sebastián Torrico is one of the best archers of Argentine football. The condor is champion of America and idol in San Lorenzo.


Mendoza is the land of the condor. A large, elegant and solitary bird. It adorns our sky in high mountains. Watching it fly through our landscapes is a unique sight. And so typical is the condor in Mendoza, that his name is the nickname of many people. Sebastian Torrico is the case. He has earned it, because he flies in the bow and because of his resemblance (with a lot of imagination). The Mendoza is a reference in Argentine arches .

Sebastián Torrico was born in Luján de Cuyo in 1980. He had a step at Andes Talleres Sport Club and , in 2001, debuted in the first Godoy Cruz. He won the B Nacional championship in the 2005-2006 season, being an outstanding figure in the final against New Chicago . Later, he passed through Argentinos Juniors and then returned to Godoy Cruz.

In 2013 he arrived in San Lorenzo on loan for two months. He replaced Pablo Migliore, who had problems with Justice. From that moment on, although at first it cost him, he became a starting goalkeeper in Boedo. Perhaps the most remembered tackle of the Condor was the one he made against Agustín Allionein December 2013, thanks to which the Cyclone became champion.

That was the key. That cut cut served San Lorenzo to qualify for the 2014 Copa Libertadores, in which he became a champion. In that competition, the Condor had a sensational performance . He held several penalties against Guild and was elected the best goalkeeper of the Cup. In that year, he had the luxury of playing the final of the Club World Championship against Real Madrid by Cristiano Ronaldo, neither more nor less.

Even more gigantic is his humility. Sebastián Torrico is a man who never forgets, but never, where he came from or who he really is. It's just that he understands that he's a person, flesh and blood, like the rest of mortals. Yes, he has the possibility of being successful in football, a longing for many, a realization of the few. But he keeps his feet on the ground. One of the best archers in San Lorenzo continues to answer the phone to humble journalists who call him from Mendoza, thanking them to contact him. As big as a condor.
