Mexico is the only country in Latin America with four seats for Tokyo 2020 in golf
The Mexican Golf Federation officialized the places in Mexico in the next Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games with María Fassi, Gabriela López, Abraham Ancer and Carlos Ortiz, In this regard, María Fassi believes that golf could give four medals to the delegation that will attend the summer fair.
“It is important to continue with this growth in golf, to thank all those who make it continue to grow for the support and I believe that It would not be crazy to say that we can bring four Olympic medals to Mexico“.
Mexico will have a historic participation in golf within the Olympic Games as it is the only country in Latin America that has four representatives in the summer fairThis is derived from the great growth that sport has had in recent years.
Fassi believes that the best moment in Mexican golf is thanks to the inspiration that Lorena Ochoa created in each of the four Mexicans who will participate in Tokyo 2020.
“I believe that Mexican golf is going through a very positive moment, with a lot of representation in both branches and I believe that little by little we are becoming a world power of the sport because it has been growing in recent years, obviously all inspired by what Lorena has done and what she did for Mexican golf “.
Abraham Ancer commented that one of the advantages that the Mexican golf team could have to have Olympic medals is the fact that some professional players decided to decline their participation in Tokyo 2020.
“The truth is that it will be quite strong, maybe there is a better opportunity obviously because there are fewer players and in fact some players decided not to go to the Olympics. So, if you see it by the numbers, it should be a little bit. easier, but we have to play our best golf to have a chance of winning a medal. “
For her part, Gaby López, who will be one of the flag-bearers of the Mexican delegation at these Olympic Games, commented that for her it is much more exciting to win an Olympic medal than a title in a Major Championship.
“We consider the Olympic Games perhaps more important or equal to a Major Championship. Personally, I have much more hope of winning the Olympic medal than winning a Major Championship. I always grew up with the illusion of being an Olympic gymnast and well now that it is for the part of golf, there is nothing more beautiful that can share a medal with an entire country “.
