Santa Cruz welcomes Chile team
Tenerife has once again been chosen by elite athletes for important training sessions.
Santa Cruz was delighted to welcome the women’s basketball team from Chile. The athletes were on the island for technical coaching ahead of an Olympic qualifier.
Sports councillor, Zósimo Darias welcomed the players and staff during a reception in the council chamber. He said the city was honoured to have been chosen by the team ahead of Rio 2016 and presented them with a commemorative plaque.
As a return gesture, the council received a team jersey and a ball signed by all the players.
The Chile visitors spent ten days in Tenerife but two, Sendy Basáez and Catalina Abuyenes, stayed behind to play with CB Adareva.
