For this, from this week the women’s squad trains in the city of Cienfuegos, 234.3 kilometers southeast of here, and the men’s in Santiago de Cuba (888.5 kilometers east of this capital), with the aim of restarting their training with their respective uke (training partner).
Manso recalled that the closing of the Olympic qualification will be on June 30 of next year.
‘In our sport, this process is through the ranking of each athlete. To achieve this, you must participate in most events, whether they are Grand Slam, Grand Prix, Pan-American, and thus accumulate the best possible scores, ‘he said.
The Cuban judocas will have their first commitment, after the paralysis of the tournaments due to the global health crisis caused by the Covid-19 epidemic, at the Pan-American Championship in Guadalajara, Mexico, from November 19 to 22.
The continental competition will award the first three places 700, 500 and 350 points, respectively, to the rankings towards the Japanese competition.
According to the director, Cuba will have 18 representatives in the Mexican tournament, including those of the Olympic pre-selection, nine for each sex, and in two divisions they will present the same number of judocas, although it is not yet defined which ones.
We cannot miss out on this tournament, because it is one of the ones with the highest number of points. It is easier for us to compete in America than in a Grand Slam in Europe, where Japan, Russia and China take part, although the results of the appointments in Paris and Dusseldorf in February were optimal for the Cubans, Manso added.
So far, Cuba has six judocas in qualifying positions: Idalys Ortiz (more than 78 kilograms), Kaliema Antomarchi (less than 78 kg), Maylín del Toro (63 kg), Iván Silva (90 kg), Andy Granda ( more than 100 kg) and Magdiel Estrada (73 kg), the latter for the continental quota.
The preselection is completed by Nahomis Acosta (52 kg), Arnaes Odelín (57 kg), Orlando Polanco and Osniel Solís, both weighing 66 kilos.
According to the national commissioner, Polanco and Solís are very close in the ranks and it will depend on their performances, in the Pan American and in the rest of the competitions where they intervene, to define who will obtain the position for the Tokyo Olympiad.
