After several hectic early mornings and with a lot of action for Argentine athletes in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the athletes of our country will have a fairly calm eighth day of competition with action for Las Leonas, for yachting and for the Panteras.

The Lionesses are assured of their presence in the knockout stage

, although they have yet to define their final position in group B. So far, they are second behind Australia, the rival they will face tonight at 11:45 p.m.

for first place.


To keep it, those led by Carlos Retegui must win by four goals.

Beyond that aspiration, the Argentine team must score at least one point so as not to risk giving second place to New Zealand, who will face China, or Spain, who will play Japan.

In volleyball, Las Panteras

are facing a very complicated outlook after three losses in a row

, in which they could not win even one set. The team led by Hernán Ferraro, who is last in group B, must win their two games (if possible, without giving up sets) and wait for help from others. They have been playing from 2.20 on Saturday against Turkey.

The setting in yachting provides different perspectives.

But this morning it

will be the turn of the best sailboats of the Albiceleste "navy"


Facundo Olezza shares fourth place in the Finn class.

He has 23 points and shares the fourth place overall with the Dutchman Nicholas Heiner.

The first three are the British Giles Scott (13), the Spanish Joan Cardona (14) and the Hungarian Zsombor Berecz (21).

This morning regattas 7 and 8 are run. In total there are 10 races and if it remains in the top ten, it will go for everything in the medal race.
