He came with only one goal – to reach and to win the Olympics! Osmany was very close to reach his goal, but Brazilian side crushed his and a dream of Italy to become Olympic champions.



After the last point, Osmany Juantorena got emotional and simply couldn’t stop the tears. Silver is not a medal that he wanted to win.

But, even though he is 31, he still has a chance to compete at Tokyo Olympics. There will be another chance for a great player such as Osmany Juantorena.
