There are 406 days left for the torch to light up at the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo. Something more than a year for the sporting event most expected by most athletes. While that day arrives, the Minsk 2019 European Games appear on the calendar as a kind of general rehearsal for many of them. An event that was born four years ago and that wants to consolidate in the Belarusian capital in a few days.

The European Games, scheduled from June 21 to 30, will serve many of the athletes to test their preparation for next season. «I had a back injury, but I already competed a few months ago with a bronze and my only two goals this year are the European (which will be played in these Games) and the World Cup that will be after. I feel very well for Minsk, "said Sherazadishvili, judo world champion and one of the aspirants to give Spain a medal in Tokyo 2020.
Olympic Games in Madrid
The president of the COE, Alejandro Blanco, reiterated that "there is no city in the world better prepared" to host Olympic Games than Madrid. «I was president of the Madrid 2020 bid and in September 2013 we were crushed, but in December 2014 the Agenda 2020 was approved, which was what Madrid said. There is no city in the world better prepared, now we must wait for political stability in the city and after 2028 seriously consider a Games. We will see some Games in Madrid yes or yes», Said Blanco
