Talking Tokyo is our 6-part podcast series ahead of Tokyo 2020 by Studio Hockey. We take 1 player from each team and match him up with an opponent from the opening game at the Olympic Games. The Olympic Games will start on July 24th… we hope. That’s why from now on every month on the 24th we’ll publish a new episode for Talking Tokyo.
In our second episode we have met up with Miki Delas from Spain and Lucas Vila from Argetina about their road to Tokyo.
Miki Delas, aged 35, is a Spanish defender from the mythical club FC Barcelona, mès que un club…. As Miki will explain in 2007 he made the difficult decision to leave his own club for Atletic Terrassa where he won 4 titles in 5 years before moving to Belgium where he played for another 5 years for Antwerp before returning to his beloved Barca.
Lucas Vila is an Argentina striker and a very creative player. Aged 33 he is now one of the experienced players in the team defending their gold medal in the next Olympics. Lucas played in his Argentina, in the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain and Germany.
Both will play their 3rd Olympic Games in Tokyo…. we hope…
