“I don’t have the idea to record what I like to compare with Cambiaso”

If there is a capital of the World Cup for these days, the point in the map of the world in Palermo, where the Argentine Abierto is disputed, is a unique spectacle in the world as the NBA; in Palm Beach, where the game is open at the Open of the United States of Tennis; by Windsor, ese patio trasero del Palacio de Buckingham donde la mismísima Isabel II entrega la Copa de la Reina. The GPS is located in Cañuelas, province of Buenos Aires. This is Adolfo Cambiaso, el Maradona del polo, 17 times champion in Palermo and the most prestigious historical goal scorer. Y, a subcos metros de su campo, parece que acaba de nacer un nuevo Messi del taco y la bocha.

Everything is a capricious periodical game, it is clear. But it is as if Messi was born in Fiorito, in a picture of the house of Maradona. “When I saw a Jetatiene cosas de Cambiaso”, Anime hace una semanas Lolo Castagnola, the father of creation. The creation? See you Camilo Castagnolatiene 19 years ago y unos pocos días, y acaba de cerrar su temporada soñada obteniendo dos de los tres torneos del olimpo del mundo polo, la Triple Corona.

In these months in the world of taco and bocha todos hablan de Jeta. That’s what your team, La Natividad, Camilo Castagnola is located in La Dolfina el Argentino Abierto de Polothe turn that is great for the great players of Soñaron with ganar y que no lograron en toda su vida.

Seventa y dos horas después de que el pibe se convirtiera en el jugador más joven en llegar a los 10 goles de handicap en la historia (with 18 years and 364 days), from the house of Cañuelas, Castagnola padre (which has 10 goals) intent to ask for his pre-Palermo declaration: the best of history. These players, like Bautista Heguy, are unique. Tambien Facundo Pieres. Y el Jeta lo está haciendo bien en su posición, pero es un camino largo ”, le dice a Clarin the man, you are the champion of Abierto.

Camilo (now 19 years old) is the eldest boy of the Castagnola who plays in the green camel team that completes hermano Bartholomew (20), the South African Ignatius Du Plessis and Polito Pieres. They are still the new champions of the classic end of the year, el Argentino Abierto de Palermo. Voltearon al mencionado rey del polo y cortaron una racha feroz: La Dolfina has already received the latest 8 Palermo de consecutive manner. Además, Camilo for the goal scorer with 47 goals. Attás suyo quedaron consagrados como el propio ACotro crack como Facundo Pieres, Rufino Bensadón y Guillermo Caset (h).

December 13, Jeta Castagnola cumplía 19 años y se acercó a la Copa de Potrillos como lo hace desde que tiene uso de razón. So much at the same time, it was time for him to play a penny of 44 centimeters, with the risk of getting ready to pay attention to the public’s attention to the polo. “Como juegan los Lolitos! ”, Was the comment about los pibes que hoy ya son Barto y Jeta, con nombre propio.

El lunes, when Camilo regressed as the champion of Palermo, the guys reacted like he did when he came to the consolation, and he said the same thing: “Fue raro, me rodearon y me pedian autogragrafos. The truth that shocked me a little. If I think it’s something else because I don’t want to be one of them: when I saw the ‘los de la tele’ I was wondering. Feather me dio vergüenza ahora estar en ese lugar”, As soon as possible Jetain the tranquility of the house in the middle of the camp.

-Se you are too late to talk about Palermo with 18 years old.

-No, I’m happy, imaginary. With my German, we can’t create, imagine.

-You, German Barto resaltó lo que significa haber ganado Palermo con el mejor del mundo en la cancha. Do you have an aggregate value superior to your Adolfo Cambiaso?

-Imaginate, you have a great value, it was a very difficult part, you have a lot of experience, you know how to play with the caballos, it is recognized as a mount es and it is, the best of the world. Claro that is special.

-You’re still inconsistent, you are very relaxed.

In-You, when you are here, you are watching the best of the world and the other player and you want to win. We have spent a lot of time, but we are nervous, but we have a difficult time, we have played against and quizzed our time, but we are not limited by the methods we want.

Terminó la temporada alta y Jeta it’s vacation time. Is the plan perfect? “Me gusta irme al campo, a La Pampa”, said the player who was allowed to do something:Now I want to play some football games, but when I’m ready I know you don’t know me”. Hasta hace no tanto, Jeta y Barto I have an extreme diversion: jugaban polo matches in moto. “Cossa se poníg peligrosa cuando se armaba cuatro contra cuatro”the account of Clarín la mamá de los chicos, Camila.

Paracía bastante improbable que estos pibes con sangre de Castagnola cruise with Cambiaso I don’t want to go to polo. “It simply came to our notice then. De chicos se quisieron dedicar, le ponían mucha pasión pero no estábamos a la expectativa de hasta donde iban a llegar ”, le cuenta el propio Lolo and Clarín. I have a year to decide to travel outside to dedicate to his hijos: “Jugaron muchos torneos de chiquitos y eso los fue formando. He told me that he wanted to taste me, to divert me, but I didn’t like that ”.

Hace dos años, Jeta equipment in the grand polo scene. Tenía 16 years, six goals of valoración y su hermano siete. Al fin de la temporada lo subieron a ocho y Barto ya era 9. El 2020 fue un año aceptable, perdieron contra los equipos que podían perder: Ellerstina y La Dolfina. But this year dieron el golpe. Ganaron Hurlingham, the second turn in the importation of the Triple Corona. The last week of the week 15-14 at La Dolfina in the Cathedral of Palermo. “We have prepared our best, we are ready with more cabal and better organized. Antes de Palermo yo dije que La Natividad era candidato a ganarlo. Obvio que podíamos perder, pero estabas ahí ”, le dice Castagnola a Clarín. Ahora, Camilo.

-You save what you think before you start time?

-We know what we have to do with the team. We have to say that we have the level to compete; the important era of desperation, trust in the companions. But good, when we go to Hurlingham and we have a lot. imagine that you will be able to do it.

It’s like Bartholomew Lolo Castagnola, the father of Jeta y Barto, lo hubiera tenido todo planeado. Once upon a time, the part of La Dolfina when Cambiaso decided to reform the team that had a lot of money Abiertos. Only David Pelón Stirling of the last formation and incorporation of Juan Martín Nero, the best back of the decadewhich alguna manera reemplazó a Lolo. The quart element is Pablo Mac Donough. Fue un verdadero dream teamsin dudas a historical quartet that ganó ocho titoulos al hilo y 13 de los ultimos 17. Cambiaso and Castagnola además de cuñados, se habían criado juntos y eran como germanos. Dejaron de serlo, si es que eso fuera posible.

With the patient of an araña, Lolo I saw the fireplace, built the lawn and the foundation of La Natividad, with the propioto project: Clarin this year.

Era 2013 when Barto y Jeta won the Copa de Potrillos Sub-14, the title of which is important to be counted in these years. “Ya les dije que los voy a felicitar cuando me traigan la copita de Palermo”le dice Lolo a The Graphic in an interview with the premonitor donde además le aseguraba a la histórica revista deportiva que los veía ganando el Abierto con esta camiseta. That, most of all, is that you have to lose your life, the many evolve. It was in those years that he decided to play polo to accompany his friends, who wanted to be professional.

This week, when the teams defined how to form the year that was born, La Natividad confirmed the continuity of the world. Hace un año, en esta misma semana, La Dolfina había perdido a Nero y Mac Donough y se barajaba la chance de sumar a Bartolomé y Camilo al equipo. “I have nothing to do”the answer Jeta and Clarín. “It is, when you are armed with a team, that you are conventional and have the opportunity to respect your integrators”, said the father, who said a lot without saying so much.

Jeta to know that the distance between the fathers, in these years is the relationship with the primes Poroto and I have a perfect manner. “We apostatize to this team, but ojalá en un futuro podamos jugar los primos juntos“, dice Camilo. Y su padre agrega:” Es cierto que ahora estamos bien pero at the moment I want to make it“, completa el padre. Por lo pronto, el año que viene se verán las caras con el menor de los Cambiaso, que al fin se sumará a jugar con su padre en la temporada alta de polo. Y todo invita a pensar que la final of 2022 can go back to family.

-Cortaste la racha de tu tio quo si hubiera ganado Palermo se ponía a dos titulos de Juancarlitos Harriott, the maximum winner with 20 Openings. Además le sacaste otro record, el del jugador más joven en llegar a los 10 goles de handicap. What is the brand that you want to search for now?

-The law that I do not have the idea of ​​records. I only treat you well. Verdad es que no me gusta compararme con nadie, imaginate, no le doy bola a eso, trato de hacer la mía. Yo soy yo, soy Jeta Castagnola. Trato de hacer lo mejor posible todos los partidos y aprender de los buenos jugadores.
