Luanda – The head of the Angolan delegation to the 2012 Olympic Games of London (England), António Monteiro “Bambino”, concluded that the country’s participation in this summer event was negative, having expressed greater disappointment at the performance of the judo and Handball teams.
Speaking recently to the Radio 5 sports station, António Monteiro “Bambino” said he is disappointed because by this time the country should be able to do better.
“Even with all the contingencies that took place, all the problems, such as lack of funds to prepare the teams well to fulfil what was planned in the last three years, despite all this, I believed and felt that it was possible to make more, and this “more” could have been done by two disciplines, judo and handball”, he explained.
He said there had been great expectations regarding these two sports, because they have reached a level that enabled the sports officials to be more confident about a positive performance in the London Olympics, which took place from 27 July to 12 August.
“But it was a dream. We’ve woken up and understood that in fact it was a dream we could have realised”, he said.
