The Spanish Golf Mess: The Federation Failure that leaves out to Santiago Tarrío

The news of the positive by Covid19 by Jon Rahm shook like a tsunami at the Spanish morning. A news that meant the compulsory renunciation of the world's number one to the Olympic Appointment, especially cruel circumstance for him, considering that he is the second positive of him after he detected in the month of June. Up to here a cluster of inexplicable circumstances outside of human control.

But the culebron begins to complicate when at 9:02 in the morning of Sunday, the Royal Spanish Golf Federation sends a statement with Rahm's low and ends the text exposing: "Without material time to find a substitute and fulfill all Health Protocols that are required in the JJOO of Tokyo 2020, Spanish Golf will be only represented, in male category, by Adri Arnaus ".

At that time, while the networks burned before the alleged lack of foresight of the Spanish delegation, Jorge Campillo, enrolled by the RFEG in the last place on the list of Olympic athletes became in touch with the president of the Federation to manifest his desire To hurry all your options to get to Japan before Thursday and participate in the tournament. The North American Bryson's BROWS OF CHAMBEAU, also positive, and the immediate replacement of him by Patrick Reed, pour gasoline to fire.

"Doing the accounts, it was complicated that a player could arrive with all the sanitary protocols, hence, at first we made the decision not to send anyone," explains from Tokyo, Nacho Grevás, the sports director of the Royal Spanish Federation of Golf. However, the firm Campillo decision changes the perspective and all the protocols are activated so that he can reach Tokyo. But there is another problem behind, the next player in the ranking is the Galician Santiago Tarrio and not Jorge Campillo.

"The error is ours, we can not hide it," he admits farber. "We have to deliver a prior list with the possible Olympic players. It is an uncomfortable protocol for players, as they have to be monitored, fill out forms ... and we made that list about the month of March with five names among those who do not I was tarried. At that time it was not close to the first positions. "

The Federation sent that first list with the five best ranking players at the time. The list included Rahm, Sergio García, Cabrera-Bello, Arnaus and Campillo. But the circumstances made the Spanish players falling from the list, while Tarrio got two victories at the Challenge Tour and became the fifth player of the ranking at the end of June. However, the list was never updated and the Olympic Committee does not allow non-inscribed athletes to compete. "All adverse circumstances have been given. Although the normal thing is that players who do not have in principle options do not want to be on that list, since it is uncomfortable, we had to have planned it," admits Grevás, also captain of the Male Spanish team.

Once the situation is known, Tarrio attended this newspaper ostensibly affected: "It is confirmed that we can not go, not being in the prelist that was done in March. It is a very big injustice. It is true that then it was far, but all my Team deserves it ". "I did not even know that there was a list, I was surprised that no one from the RFEG has contacted us even if it is to ask the size of clothes, just in case ... obviously, I have never gone to a jxo and I do not know how it works" , he explained.

"It's time to have a resilience, I'm very fucked, especially for my team. It was a unique opportunity, I understand that it is a mistake that can happen, but it is a very expensive mistake for me and this there is no way to compensate it. Touch continue working and try Being within three years, "he concluded.
