Some misfortune

Annie Guglia went to Japan in disaster, Earlier this week, after being promoted to the first replacement. By being there, she hopes to get help from fate … and her wishes come true in two stages.

COVID-19 is the cause of the first stroke of luck. Dutch Candy Jacobs, ranked 8th in the world, withdrew after a positive result. Spaniard Andrea Benitez thus earned his place in the games as the first substitute. Guglia had to wait for another defeat to gain herself.

A second stroke of luck was expressed in Colombia. Ana Maria Randon, who was previously classified as Guglia on the list of alternatives, could not make it to Japan. The withdrawal of the injured South African athlete now gives her a chance to fight for the medal.
