Futsal Reaches The Olympics, and HandsOnSports Is There!

November 1, 2018

In October 2018 the sport of futsal made it's historic entrance into the world of Olympic sport. Host country Argentina put one an unbelievable show with crowds of 5,000 to 7,000 spectators for every match. The atmosphere was electric, the talent on the court was incredible and the cultural experience and connections were everything you could imagine an olympic experience would be and then some.

Our girls from Trinidad were certainly lacking in experience only having played the game for a little over one month before going up again the likes of Spain, Japan, Bolivia and Tonga. 

When it was all said and done we achieved the first two goals that coach Cony set out for us, we scored a goal, we won a game and we fell a few minutes short of beating Bolivia to secure a spot in the semi-final matches.

I thank everyone involved for the invitation, the support, the hospitality and the friendship. It was three weeks of my life that I will always cherish.
