Alba Torrens and Tamara Abalde, ready for the Games

Both players passed the medical examination after overcoming COVID. They will rejoin the group on July 5.


Alba Torrens was in the stands at La Fonteta in Wednesday's game against Serbia and this Friday he underwent the medical examination at the Quironsalud hospital in Valencia. His partner Tamara Abalde has also received approval at the Quironsalud Miguel Domínguez Hospital in Pontevedra. Both players missed the Eurobasket after testing positive for coronavirus five days before the start of the championship.

"In athletes who have tested positive for COVID, it is important to evaluate respiratory and cardiocirculatory function later to guarantee a return to intense physical activity without risk of complications", explains the doctor of the FEB medical services, Juan Francisco Abellán. "After the study carried out, the two players are ready to start working again to regain physical form after these days of forced rest", he adds.

Torres and Abalde will join the group on July 5 as, after the Eurobasket in Valencia, the players and the coaching staff will enjoy a few days off before returning to concentrate to prepare for the Tokyo Olympic Games.
