Homenaje a la leyenda del polo: a string of emotions and memories for the unbearable Juancarlitos Harriott

Nunca le gustaron los homenajes. When it comes to cruising and logic, it is inconvenient. When we hear about it, we will have a chance to pay attention to the phone. Tampoco le agradan las comparaciones: siente que lo ponen en un lugar donde no quiere estar. For many, it is the best polis of all times. Para otros, uno de los dos mejores, sitial que comparte con Adolfo Cambiaso. Ganador 20 veces del Campeonato Argentino Abierto, Juancarlitos Harriott guarda un organu: haber vestido siempre la camiseta de Coronel Suárez. The team of the suit of diamonds blue and red. The club with more titles and the most important world tour: 26. This is the total, 25 son of Coronel Suarez (he corresponded to Coronel Suarez II).

Hace casi dos años, en plena pandemia, lo entrevistamos dos veces. The first example with the motif of collecting 40 years of the last act of the selection of Argentine selection in the Copa de las Américas, all in San Antonio, Texas, in 1980, with the mythical formation of Suarez: Horacio Antonio and Alberto Pedro Heguy together with Juancarlitos y su hermano menor Alfredo. “The machine for making polo”, as it was built. When we leave, we say: “Juanca, a day of the world and talk of the general and the world”. The fire response: “Dale, dale, pero te vas a aburrir, ¿eh?”.

Congratulations on the mission and, if necessary, we will not be able to spend time on the phone again. Fire a place. Included, in the final, I thought I was thinking La Dolfinathe team that dominates a decade with another formation that is in the history of sports (Adolfo Cambiaso, David Stirling, Pablo Mac Donough and Juan Martín Nero), le preguntamos si no le hubiera gustado que se enfrentaran ambos conjuntos. I don’t want to go back to the answer: “But I want to taste my taste against La Dolfina. We have more young people! ”He said. And he said a good story.

Juancarlitos anda los 85. See more of the Coronel Suárez natal, in the camp of La Felisa, 15 kilometers from the city of the western bonaire, which is located 550 kilometers from Buenos Aires. It’s an emblem. This entry has been posted in a state of honor. Obvio que lo puso medio incómodo. The receptionist said that he was able to pass through the center and the village. Sabía, for example, that he had recently painted. I have a funny anecdote. “It simply came to our notice then. ya voy a averiguar quien fue ”. It is said that a barbie was in the state and was intrigued by the author of the humor. Corría el mes de julio de 2020 y la pandemia había atacado con fuerza en la Argentina, cuando todavía no habían llegado las vacunas y la mayoría de la gente se mantenía encerrada en sus casas.

Number 3 of exceptions, a couple of days of Juancarlitos live an emotional moment, other than reality. New with el Coronel Suarez Polo Club by the way. Your club. It’s the second house. In the main canch, which is located in the room, a special table was inaugurated. With the colors of the club. Families, friends and allegations to accompany the legend. Lo abrazaron, lo saludaron, se sacaron fotos, lo aplaudieron a rabiar. I can’t move emotionally, including when I want to pass this moment, even if I want to talk to the people.

“It simply came to our notice then. I’m very content, very organ. Very nice with the club. They have what he said. From here we come, it’s our second home. Pasaron los años. Ya se está termininando la vida, pero uno de los grandes orgullos que tengo es que todos los torneos que he jugado, grandes o chicos, siempre lo hice por el Coronel Suárez Polo Club ”, expresó Harriott, recibiendo el aplauso de los assistants y acompaño por su sobrino Juan Harriott (hijo de Alfredo), presidente del club.

“It can be said that my name is still in the year 1929 and this club is also one of the best countries with the exception of the Capital Federal. Polo cans, 18 golf courses, tennis, squash. Agradezco por venir. I have a lot more content to say that you save money and I want to say that this is me, ”said the man who hosted the Olympics in 1976 and also distinguished himself with the Konex award.

El mensaje de su sobrino Juan redondea el significado de lo que es Juancarlitos a nivel deportivo y sobre todo, humano. “Polo is not one of the most popular sports in the world, but Juancarlitos is one of the most important sportsmen who have given us a chance. Tenemos la suerte de que sea de Coronel Suárez. Juancarlitos has represented and has made a name for himself in Coronel Suarez, but only in the club, he also loves the city for everyone. Así Suárez se hizo má conocido, más popular. Y lo que más elogiamos de Juancarlitos no son sus logros, sino su rectitud, su kaballerosidad y todo el cariño que le tienen ”.

And because of the invitation of the invitation to the act that was realized: “Inauguration of the new table Juan Carlos Harriott (h.) ‘. We pay tribute to our talent, our deportation camps, our convictions and our way of living life ”.

A common man, but not so much. Crack on the couch. Mr. inside and out of her. We think that the price of the elogios is always high. Como cuando una vez, en pleno Abierto de Palermo, ya retirado (dejó el alto polo en aquella serie por la Copa de las Américas en 1980), mientras subía a las plateas por una de las explanadas, alguien lo frenó y le dijo: “Juanca, you are impeccable. You can follow the game perfectly ”. Harriott’s answer, accompanied by a song, was for the books: “Te voy a contestar como lo decía Fangio: no mires cómo está el chasis, tenés que mirar el motor”.
