WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFIER: ARGENTINA SAYS GOODBYE TO JUJUY AND TRAVELS TO PERU

The preparation of the Argentine Senior Team in Humahuaca, Jujuy, came to its end and Guillermo Orduna's girls made an intense adaptation work in orden to face the last competition of the season and the main goal: the qualification to the World Championship Japan 2018. This Wednesday the team will travel to Peru where from Friday to Sunday the World Championship Qualifier will be played against home team, Colombia and Uruguay.

The Panthers used the height of Humahuaca as a prelude to the conditions that Arequipa, home of the World Championship Qualifier, will present. The tournament will offer the only remaining place for South America in the most important competition of next year's calendar. The Peruvian city is located 2335mts above the sea level and Argentina will debut on Friday against Colombia from 7pm (local time). Then Orduna's team will face Uruguay and Peru, on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

The National Team will not have Tanya Acosta, who suffered an injury on her left ankle during the preparation, and was replaced in the roster by Antonela Fortuna, who is training with the team since Sunday.

In their passage through Jujuy, Argentina received the support of the Governor of the province, Gerardo Morales, of the intendants of San Salvador, Raul Jorge, and Humahuaca, Aldo Herrera, and from local people, that cheered in the trainings during the entire stay. To say goodbye to the province, the team visited Humahuaca's Normal School, where the girls met with students from the educational institutions of the area, anxious to meet them and share a good moment before their departure to Arequipa, scheduled for this Wednesday.
