How many sports can an athlete achieve an official international title by integrating the team together with her daughter? That happened in women's polo.

Delfina “Fuchi” Donovan, took the luxury of achieving it withElina Braun, her 16-year-old daughter. In addition, along with several girls who made their first weapons in women's polo in the school she runs, called “The Pole of Fuchi”.

The tournament

After the two initial wins against Manipur (India II)and Kenya, 5-3 and 7-3, our team faced in the final the most difficult set, USA. The match showed better the Americans, who managed to advance 4-2 in the scoreboard . But Argentina did not stop searching at any time. And he achieved the final draw in 6, with which the tournament was defined by penalties. That's where our girls got strong. They managed to win 3-1 (scored Braun, Donovan and Ayerza).

And they won the 4th Statehood Day Women's International Polo Tournament. Which was disputed in Imphal, Manipur, India. And that had the participation of six women's polo teams: Argentina, the United States, Canada, Kenya, India and Manipur (India II).

In the decisive match, the Argentine National Team enlisted Delfina Donovan, Martina Garrahan (replaced by Mora Aldao in the third chukker), Elina Braun and Catalina Ayerza. While our girls' goals in the final were converted by Braun in 4 chances, Donovan and Ayerza.

Elina Braun, voted MVP of the tournament, was the scorer of our team, after turning 9 goals.
