Such as Yesterday, Navarre Beatriz Zudyer appeared at the first Paralympic Games in which the Spanish women’s wheelchair basketball team was disputed over her athletic merits. It was a group stage match against the United States where Abraham Carrion’s team fell 34-68. Zdir managed to score 4 points out of 34 of his team.
The presence of the women’s team in Tokyo is historic because this is the first time that Spain plays a direct qualification match and not by invitation as happened in Barcelona 92, which it did as the host country. The ticket was obtained after finishing fourth at the European Championships in Rotterdam 2019.
In their first match against the United States, the Spanish national team was always behind on the scoreboard, although there were sections where they put the American players in trouble.
The triple spear formed by Natalie Schneider, Rose Hollermann and Courtney Ryan was a killer for Spain, who couldn’t stop rivals in defence, who ended up adding 51 of the three points from the United States.
The final quarter, with just three points, was throwing weight on Spain’s options.
“These nerves and perhaps anxiety from the first appearance were noticed. We did not make the best shooting decisions and the success did not enter the outside shot and the easy shots under the basket. We are a growing team, the competition is progressing,” said Spaniard Sarah Revuelta at the end of the match. “We hope to go to the round.”
Spain is in Group B along with the Netherlands, the United States, Algeria and China. Our competitor today is at 10.00. The first four of the group go to the quarter-finals.
