Andorran delegation

 

Interestingly they have Claudia Guri Moreno (WCh athlete in athletics) competing in 3x3 basketball. Also, Kevin Esteve Rigail (alpine skiing Olympian) competing in golf. :d

Actually Claudia's story is "interesting"

 

She's a basket player turned athlete actually.

She played with Spain in an U17 World Championships before because she has double nacionality, but because she played with Andorra in the 2011 Eurobasket C U16, she's only eligable to the Spanish rooster as the "nacionalizated" spot, Because of Spain also having Astou Ndour at the same age, she wasn't going to international competitions so she switched to Andorra again.

 

So she's a pretty decent level basketball player actually

The Italian delegation by sport can be found here: http://www.tarragona2018.coni.it/it/discipline.html

There are 27 Olympic medallists: Basile and Giuffrida (judo), Galiazzo (archery), J. Rossi and Pellielo (shooting), Paltrinieri (swimming), Longo Borghini (cycling), Pizzo (fencing), Chamizo (wrestling), Battisti and Venier (rowing) and a lot of water polo players, both men and women, who were at Rio 2016.

It looks like a very serious delegation.

 

There's also a detailed calendar (in Italian) by date and sport: http://www.tarragona2018.coni.it/it/programma-gare.html

(I have no idea where to find a detailed calendar on the official site of the Games)

Your rhythmic gymnasts are amazing. All three of them earned medals at the FIG World Cup series, which is something VERY hard to achieve for a gymnast who is not from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine or Bulgaria (and more recently Israel).

I agree and O think that we will try to win all gold medals... I don't know if we'll have finals to, they will be a boost for the medal table.

So we'll have two Rio gold medalists here (Perković, Glasnović), but mostly the selected team is a disappointment. :(

 

Also, we won't take part in equestrian. :( But we will in golf. :yikes:
