Lampan scolds Blanco for his last words about Olympic bid
Aragon head Javier Lampan described the statement of the Spanish Olympic Committee president, Alejandro Blanco, as “appalling”.Not everyone can benefit from a bid for the 2030 Winter Olympics between Aragon and Catalonia.
This came at the observation session in Cortes de Aragon, referring to an interview with Blanco in “El Món a RAC1”, where Blanco stated that what the technical committee had done was Look for a nomination that allows for the best possible games to be curated, not a game that “everyone benefits; that’s impossible”.
The President of Aragon emphasized that he had promised to promote the candidacy as long as it was on an equal footing with Catalonia and with a balanced distribution of evidence, and that this commitment was made with him by the head of government, Pedro Sánchez, and the COE.
In light of recent events, Lampan sees “some positive development” when this Wednesday in Huesca the Secretary of State for Sports, Jose Manuel Franco, admitted that there could hardly be a candidacy “if it was not balanced”although he insisted that Blanco’s statement sounded “absolutely shocking”.
