Shortly after knowing his inclusion in the pre-list for the Tokyo Olympic Games, Pau Gasol was “very excited, happy and grateful” for being on the list of players called up this Saturday by the coach of the Spanish basketball team, Sergio Scariolo , for the Games.
“Very excited, happy and grateful to be part of #LaFamilia on this special occasion and eager to start preparing for the Games. Toki awaits us ”, wrote the Barcelona player, who will opt for his fourth Olympic medal in the Japanese capital, after the silver in Beijing 2008 and London 2012 and the bronze in Rio 2016.
Gaso, 40, has not participated with the national team since the 2017 Eurobasket, in which Spain was bronze after beating Russia. A week ago he was proclaimed league champion with the Barça team after returning from the NBA and reappearing after two years without playing due to an injury.
