The Spanish team is already in Tokyo

The Spanish Paralympic team is already in Tokyo. The bulk of the expedition left Barajas on Thursday, on a charter flight chartered by Iberia and leaving at 11:05, and landed in the Japanese capital early this Friday. Just a couple of days before the track cycling team did it, headed by Ricardo Ten. All of them had been distributed, the last two weeks, by the different High Performance Centers of Madrid, Sierra Nevada (Granada) and Sant Cugat (Barcelona) and the Technification Centers of Seville and Palma de Mallorca, in a ‘bubble’ format to avoid any contagion.

Our delegation for this appointment is made up of 229 people, including 142 athletes —127 of them with disabilities and 15 supporters— and another 87 members more, number corresponding to the trainers, doctors, physiotherapists, mechanics and organization personnel. This figure exceeds that of Rio. At that time, the Spanish expedition consisted of 201 people, of which 127 were athletes.

The Paralympic Games will begin next Tuesday 24 with the opening ceremony, which will take place at the Olympic Stadium and in which the cyclist Ricardo Ten and the swimmer Michelle Alonso will act as our flag-bearers in the parade. Spain will begin to compete a day later, on Wednesday, and will do so with wheelchair basketball, cycling, swimming and table tennis.
