The Covid-19 stopped the preparation of everyone and also for some the certification of their presence in the Japanese capital. There Spain has the bar set in the 17 Rio 2016 medals.
To do this, he hopes to attend with some 300 athletes, with about 200 places already acquired – the last figure confirmed by the COE is 168 in December. Four years ago, in Rio 2016, the Spanish team appeared with 309 athletes, 165 men and 144 women, and with Rafa Nadal leading the way as standard bearer, a role that has yet to be finalized for Tokyo.
The COE regulations grant the same to the canoeist Saúl Craviotto, for being classified with the best Olympic curriculum -two golds, one silver and one bronze-, but as a novelty and also as a boost to women’s sport, the CIO will allow there to be two flag bearers, one man and woman.
Mireia Belmonte -two silver in London 2012, one gold and one bronze in Rio 2016- and Lydia Valentín -silver in Beijing 2008, gold in London 2012 and bronze in Rio 2016- are the great candidates, but like all Spaniards they saw their preparation interrupted by the decree of the state of alarm in mid-March.

And despite the outbreaks and the restrictive measures adopted again in some areas of the country, the Barcelona CAR is not within the regions affected by them and works the same as that of the capital with special hygiene and safety measures.
The CIO has confirmed that it will respect the places obtained for Tokyo until the world sport stoppage, but there are pre-Olympic qualifications for several sports, such as women’s handball and 3×3 basketball.
Some places insured for the country are not nominal and depend on the criteria of the corresponding federation, in a year in which the Spanish federations must renew their management bodies before the Games, and others are subject to the ranking of the International Federation, which as competitions resume they may vary.
For Spain, boxers José Quiles (-57 kilos) and Gabriel Escobar (-52k) were the last to join the list of the two basketball, hockey and water polo teams and the men’s soccer and handball teams, along with the of male and female artistic gymnastics.
