Was Armenia The Best Choice for Next Years Binationals?

The installations of the GI, structurally for education very good but when it comes to the infrastructure of sports it hasn’t developed as much.“I don’t like the fields because it is not in the school (GI), it is actually in Comfenalco and even though the fields are okay, it is better to be in a school and I really don’t like that my last binationals are going to be in Armenia,” Puerta said.

After the end of this years binationals on Nov. 17, it was announced next years venue, Armenia. For many coaches and players, this isn’t the best host for such a big event.

Many coaches and students of  TCS weren’t to happy hearing about the oficial venue of the next HS binationals because of their past experiences at GI’s hosting binationals. Many think that the school is in no capacity of holding a binationals since they aren’t even played at the school.

“The GI campus (Armenia) does not have the infrastructure to host a binationals so they have to contract clubs or outside entities to borrow their service,” Anibal Betancur, coach of the high school girls volleyball team, said.

The essence of a binationals is the effect of a whole school watching the games and providing pleasure and excitement to the games. The GI binationals don’t provide athletes with that emotion.

“When you are playing binationals it is incredible when you feel that everyone from a school is watching you but at the GI, the only people that go watch you are the same athletes and for many games there’s no one watching because they also have their own games,” Maria Jose Puerta, next high school girls basketball team captain, said.

But it’s not all about the excitement, the fields themselves, cause many discomformt for coaches since it forces them to play in conditions they are not used to.

“Generally, there’s only of covered field, from a total of 4 fields meaning that the 70 percent of the games are played outdoor. That in one way or another affects the performance of the athletes because we having great installations, we are accustomed  to work in this conditions,” Betancur said.

At the end, next year is going to be the last binationals for many athletes and no matter the conditions, they are ready to give their all to finish on a high note.

“I think that we learned from this year and that left us motivated. We want to do a great tournament next year and and have the motivation of every athlete to achieve great things.”
