The Panthers, who arrived to the north of the country last Tuesday, are training in an adaptation plan to the height in Humahuaca before traveling to Arequipa, venue of the World Championship Qualifier where the girls led by Guillermo Orduna will look for the ticket available from next Friday, 13th.

The Argentine delegation arrived on Tuesday and was received by the Intendant of San Salvador de Jujuy, Mr. Raul Jorge, with his cabinet and the President of the Deliberative Council for a press conference. Later the team moved directly to Humahuaca, where they were welcomed by the Intendant Aldo Herrera, the local band and some children from schools. There, the Governor of the province, Mr. Gerardo Morales, met the team and received an Argentine jersey.

The 14 Panthers chosen for the mission trained throughout the week under the orders of Guillermo Orduna and the physical trainer Pablo Añon, increasing the intensity of the work of adaptation to the height with the running of the days.
