PHOTOS/VIDEO: Rafael Nadal and Marc Lopez at Olympic Stadium in Barcelona.
Rafa Nadal and Marc López celebrated 25 years of Barcelona'92 with a master class from Antonio Rebollo
The spirit of Barcelona'92, which is touring the main sporting events of this year in the city, has also reached the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell with a very emotional action carried out by the Olympic champions of Rio 2016, Rafa Nadal and Marc Lopez, and Antonio Rebollo.
The archer, who once had the responsibility of lighting the cauldron of the Olympic Stadium in Montjuïc at the Opening Ceremony, gave a master class to the two tennis players, who attended with great enthusiasm each and every one of the explanations. The Madrilenian, taught them first the tricks on how to mount the arch and leave it ready to throw the arrows. Marc has difficulties with the process of tightening the rope, but with the correct explanations of Rebollo, he solved it in a few seconds.
Rafa, for his part, was very excited about this action that has recovered one of the most mythical moments in the history of the Olympic Games. The way of lighting the Barcelona '92 cauldron, with the Olympic flame coming through an arrow thrown by Rebollo, a quarter of a century later lives on as one of the greatest images of those Games. The Majorcan, who was six years old in 1992, tried to imitate the Madrilenian and recreated with arch in hand this historic moment.
