2007 Mundo’s Review – Others

Golf was a real phenomenon in 2007. To tame a tiger at the majors has never been easy unless you have the stroke of an angel.

Angel " Pato" CABRERA made headline throughout the golf world when he won the US Open at Oakmont Country Club. He finished the tournament at 5-over, topping Tiger WOODS and Jim FURYK by one stroke. Cabrera entered the third round as the leader at even par, after finishing the first round at 1-under, and shooting 1-over on the second day. He was also a winner of the PGA Grand Slam of Golf and the Barclays Singapore Open.

To capped off an extraordinary year, he was awarded with the Honorary Life Membership of The European Tour.

If he had coverting his shot precisely we would have been making history by completing the double at the majors. The person that I’m referring to is Andrés ROMERO. At the Open Championship at Carnoustie Golf Links, he briefly held the lead, but ended up missing the play off by one shot.

He made up for his disappointment just a week later by winning the Deutsche Bank Players Championship of Europe.

The women’s hockey team lead by Luciana AYMAR did not had a great start to the year. Los Leonas started off the finishing second in the Champions Trophy on home soil.

However at the Pan Am Games, they seal their status as the region’s best by winning the gold medal against the United States.

And just recently, La Maga AYMAR was awarded as this years FIH Women Player of The Year for the record of four times.

The men however had some mixed result. The return of inspirational skipper Jorge LOMBI to the national team was timely as he helped them to win the Champions Challenge Trophy in Brussels, Belgium.

However they were short handed at the Pan Am Games where they surprisingly lost the final to Canada on penalties. As a result the team missed a chance for an automatic berth in next year’s Olympic Games and will need to play in the qualifying round.

The men volleyball team to had a year to forget as they finished 7th at the World Cup and were winless at the World League.
The roller hockey team only managed to finish third at the World Champioship in Montreux, Switzerland.

Finally at the Pan Am Games in Rio de Janeiro, Argentina’s overall medal haul was 11 gold, 15 silver & 33 bronze to finish at 7th place in the medal ranking.

2008 - What To Look Forward

Of course we would like to see more success at the Majors and the PGA Tour.

Then there is the Olympic qualifying round the men’s hockey team to be held in Auckland, New Zealand somewhere in February.

Los Leonas could provide a great prospect for a medal contention at the Beijing Olympic Games.

Speaking of the Olympics, we will follow the Argentina’s contingent in all the various disciples that they are participating.
