The light blue - white team already in Thailand

Nakhon Ratchamisa, Thailand - After over 30 yours travelling and getting used to the 10 hours difference and the jet lag, the Argentine Youth's Girls Team arrived to the venue where their World Championship will start for them this next Saturday (all together it begins on Friday) and will last to August 4rh, 2013. A total of 20 teams will compete in the new formula with the light blue - white girls dreaming on improving their best ranked place, the eight obtained in the 2011 edition in Turkey.

The Argentine delegation coached by Guillermo Caceres will participate of the preliminary round in Pool B together with China, Japan, Poland and Greece. Their debut will be v Japan at 16.00 Thaliand time (6.00 Argentine time).

The Argentine team is hosted at the six floor of the Sima Thani Hotel, 260 kilometers away from Bangkok together with the teams of USA, Peru (for the last ten days) and Puerto Rico until now.

They were welcomed by a strong rain and over 33 centigrates at Bangkok airport, from there moving in a bus for about 4 hours to Nakhon Ratchasima, where they arrived about 23.00 Argentine time on Saturday evening.

Even though they arrived very tired the team trained over one hour at Ratchasima city hall gym together with Mauro Silvestre and the doctor of the coaching staff, Norberto Coronel. "We need to keep in contact with the ball and that they relax some, because it was a very tiring trip" explained Caceres.

Coronel completed explaines: "Not only it was a very long and tiring trip, but the jet lag affects the whole delegation mainly the players. Therefore it is very important to keep them awak as long as we can to get used to this timetable. Ten hours is a big difference in any of us".

With reference to the team the coach added: We arrived after a very long and tiring team but the good thing is that we arrived some days before, and that will allow us to adapt ourselves for our debut. The girls are all right. They have worked very hard and the idea is to finish at least at the same ranked place as on the last championship".
