The Mexican couple Luis Rubio Y Josue Gaxiola They were eliminated from the beach volleyball tournament of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, when they fell 21-14 and 21-13 against the representative of Brazil, made up of Alison Ceruti and Alvaro Morais.
The Mexicans started the first set well, but Gaxiola’s mistakes and lack of concentration took the actions of the Mexican couple that could not recover from balance.
For the second sleeve, the errors were more noticeable and the discomfort among the players also, causing unnecessary errors.
In the end, the Mexican couple was out of the tournament in the round of 16.
Gaxiola considered that they lack international expertise to learn how to deal with this type of situation. The players showed up to the Olympic contest without their coach, after they had differences with him.
“I was anxious to play, that same anxiety of wanting to do things well and not being concrete from the beginning, I think it led us to despair and fall into the game they expected,” Gaxiola said at the end of the match.
