“You have to control your emotions”: Puerto Rico takes to the field against Bahrain in its debut in the Olympic Repechage

Seven months after being officially announced as one of the four hosts for the Olympic Repechages of FIBA around the world, the National basketball team will begin this Wednesday his search for a ticket to Paris 2024 when facing Bahrain in the Puerto Rico Coliseum Jose Miguel Agrelot.

The match, scheduled for 8:30 p.m., will mark the return of the Puerto Rican team to an Olympic Repechage since its participation in Belgrade, Serbia, in 2021. Puerto Rico, ranked sixteenth in the FIBA ​​rankings, has not advanced to the Olympics since Athens 2004. The other three repechages will be held in Spain, Latvia and Greece.

“We can’t use this first game to try to show great things, but we have to unite, play good basketball, focused and confident in what we have done to get here,” said the Puerto Rico coach, Nelson Columbus.

Puerto Rico, Bahrain and Italy are in Group B of the event, which will be held on the island. Group A, which includes Lithuania, Mexico and the Ivory Coast, will also be in action in the “Choliseo”.
