As a player who is preparing to compete in the fifth Olympic Games tournament of his career, Juan Carlos Navarro certainly knows the difficulty and the challenges of what is waiting him and the Spanish national team in Rio.

“They say that this team’s goal is to win a medal. And winning medals for three consecutive times in Olympic Games, is something few people can accomplish”, said Navarro before boarding the plane to Brazil with his teammates. “We have a tough Group in front of us and we must a good job in the upcoming matches before thinking of any medals.”

He then added that: “We still have 6-7 days ahead of us and lots of work to be done. The road that leads to the medals and the possibility of claiming the gold is quite long and difficult. Our first game (against Croatia) will be very important, as always, in order to manage our pressure and see the level we truly are.”
