Pau Gasol admitted to the Spanish media in the training camp of the Spanish national team that he is not in the best shape for the upcoming Olympic Games, however he and theteam have to work to get “in the best possible shape” for Rio.
As he explained: “We would have liked to have all our players in every preparation game preparation, but for one reason or other we couldn’t. On Thursday we play against the Ivory Coast and that will be the first time that all the players have been practicing together for the past four days. This is a significant disadvantage, however we will try to do our best and use the opportunities to get into a pace and shape for the championship”.
Gasol even spoke about himself, saying that he is physically “not at 100%” but he expects to improve: “I hope this game helps me to continue to improve and be ready for the Games. My challenge is to help the team win and finish as high as possible. It is my challenge in every championship to do it right, lead the team as best as I can and reach the top positions”.
