Adri Arnaus and Jorge Campillo will try to curdle the best possible performance from 00.30 on the first golf session
In addition, from 00.30 there will already be a competition with a Spanish presence. In golf we were supposed to have one of our great medal options, but Jon Rahm’s positive last weekend has left Spain with no options
At 02.18 Jaime Canalejo and Javier García will look for their medal as well as Aina Cid and Virginia Díaz will try it in their final, which will begin at 02.30. You can listen to all this live with Yago de Vega at Carrusel Olímpico
This morning you have to be very aware of the two rowing finals in a mode of two without a helmsman. Starting at 02.15 in the morning there will be a special Olympic Carousel with Yago de Vega to count the two finals in which the Spaniards opt for a medal
Good evening and welcome to the live of the sixth day of the Tokyo Olympics!
In the case of remo, Spain will play the finals of the category of two without a helmsman, male and female. Jaime Canalejo and Javier García will act first at around 02:18 in the morning. The Spaniards finished third in their semifinal but, taking into account the times of the other semifinal, they arrive at the decisive appointment with the fourth fastest time. Dreaming of the medal is possible even though Romanians seem very favorites to gold.
In the case of the girls, Aina Cid and Virginia Rivas reach the final with the sixth worst mark of the participants, although, except New Zealand, they are all in a handkerchief. The surprising eliminations of Australia and the United States leave the fight for silver and bronze extremely open.
In addition, Spain maintains medal options in the category of pit in olympic shooting. Starting at 02.00, Fátima Gálvez will rush her chances of getting into the final with the last two rounds of qualifying. The Cordoba is four shots from the sixth place that gives a ticket to the final. If you want to opt for it, you must make a plenary session. Any failure in the remaining 50 shots leaves him practically out.
Alberto Fernández has more options, who will start his last two qualifying rounds at 02.50. The Madrilenian only missed two shots in the three rounds played this Wednesday and right now he is sixth tied with several participants. Hitting 49 or 50 shots would practically ensure his presence in the final. If more than one shot misses, it is likely to be left out.
Finally, Nuria Vilarrubla will play the pass to the final of slalom canoeing from 07.00 in the morning. The Catalan did not have her best day this Wednesday in the classification, but she will try to be among the top ten that from 08.55 the medals are played in the final.
Pablo Carreño is left alone
If tennis was being one of the sports in which the Spanish delegation was putting together a portentous performance, in the last two days we have almost all the medal options gone. This Wednesday, Paula Badosa, Garbiñe Muguruza and Alejandro Davidovich said goodbye in the individual table.
Spain only has the option of Pablo Carreño. The Asturian will play his place in the semifinals against Russian Daniil Medvedev, seeded number two of the tournament. The match will be played when the first one played this day on court 1 between Kachanov and Humbert ends.
The candle, the great hope
In addition to the aforementioned athletes, Spain will also have representation in several other sports, notably the sail. This Thursday all Spaniards will have competition except Tamara Echegoyen and Paula Barceló, since there will be no 49er FX regattas. We will have to be especially aware of the 49er, where Diego Botín and Iago López are second; Finn, where Joan Cardona is third; 470 male, where Jordi Xammar and Nico Rodríguez also go third; and the mixed Nacra, in which Tara Pacheco and Florian Trittel are seventh.
For his part, Daniel Castro will seek to go to the second round of archery around 06:24 against the Chinese athlete Taipei Chun-Heng Wei and in swimming, Nico García (200 meters backstroke), Jessica Vall (200 meters breaststroke) and Hugo González (200 meters styles) will seek the pass to the final in their respective categories. In addition, Mireia Belmonte and Jimena Pérez (800 meters free) and Africa Zamorano (200 meters backstroke), will look for a pass to the semifinals during the afternoon session, all between 12:10 and 13:20.
Finally, it is worth mentioning that this morning golf will start. Here Spain had a great medal option with Jon Rahm, but the ‘lion of Barrika’ tested positive for coronavirus last weekend and will be the great absentee from the test.
From 00.30, the first test of all to start, Adri Arnaus and Jorge Campillo will try to curdle the best possible performance. It should be noted that Campillo has been selected at the last minute due to the loss of Rahm and will compete when he has been in the Japanese country for just a few hours
