Wednesday, January 20, 2021
Good morning! Good morning to all of you.
First of all, congratulations, because you were good yesterday. Compliments! In Argentina, tango is danced, and tango is two by four music [based on the tempo of the two quarters]. You are 4 to 2 today [refers to the previous night's victory], okay. Congratulations and courage!
And thank you for this visit, because I like to see the effort of young people and young women in sport, because sport is a marvel, sport “brings up” all the best we have inside. Keep up with this, because it brings you to a great nobility. Thanks for the testimony.
