Pau Gasol, Madrid ambassador for 2020 Olympic Games, emphasises the strength of Spanish Bid

“We will do our best to make Madrid the chosen one this Saturday, until the last minute. We are also here representing the values of our country, our sport and we have come with a great team, with a huge support from all our people. We want to do everything right, with a strong determination and commitment with the sport. We have proved it already, because this is the third time that Madrid presents a Bid for the Olympic Games. I am proud, I am proud of being part of this moment and this great revelation”



 

Spanish basket player Pau Gasol, Madrid sport ambassador for 2020 Olympic Games, emphasises the strength and maturity of Spanish Bid.

“Eight years later, I believe in having maturity and strength, which I hope that could be decisive enough this Saturday”, Los Angeles Lakers’ player and twice Spanish Olympic medallist has affirmed.

Pau Gasol has made a fervent valuation of Spanish Bid during a press conference before almost 200 journalists, in the Gaudí salon at NH City Hotel, Buenos Aires.

“I am proud of representing my country again. We are promoting the sport in order to get the Olympic Games at home. It will be a great push for our society, because it will give opportunities to all sectors and will make us all grown up”, he said.

“Our goal is to convey our enthusiasms and hopes to International Olympic Committee members. After that, we will do our best during presentation” next Saturday, he added.
