Venezuela NT’s Captain, Tomás Rincón, sent an open letter through Twitter to all the fans and media about the team’s current hardship:
Here in this situation of delicate matter that our national team is going through, the easiest thing would be to point fingers at the guilty ones, but no, this is a much more comlex topic, the search must be focused on proposing solutions and not on losing with more problems. Each one of us has to assume their respective blames, it’s not just one’s or the others’, as the team sport that we play, we’re all responsible. We must make an internal reflexion, as people and as sportsmen.
The principal goal as of today is to get back the hope of an entire country and the spirit of a team that always leaned on that mysticism to compete in the highest levels. We accept the crisis and we face it, because those who overcome crisis, overcome themselves.
