The newspaper quotes comments of the experienced technical director who said that for the competition that begins next May 20, he will have to abide by the rules of the Panamanian Federation of the discipline, which limit the age of the athletes.
“Adjustments are being made in these first training sessions at the Kenny Serracín stadium, which will be extended for at least two months in eight microcycles,” Urquiola said.
In his opinion, the time should be well broken down, especially for the players’ characteristics, because there are many of them of advanced age, but with good performance, he clarified.
Urquiola recalled that in the past there have been many injuries due to a lack of excellent physical training, hence the need for the intensity of these first training sessions so that they arrive at the best level for the expected 2022 tournament, he revealed.
In his playing days, Urquiola, known as the Lightning of Bahia Honda, was the starting camarero (refers to a position in baseball) of the Cuban team, with which he won the gold medal in five world championships, three Pan American and two Central American championships.
