Argentinian Rugby 7s legend Gastón Revol is set to play his 100th HSBC Series tournament when he runs out with his team at the Cape Town 7s tomorrow.
From a surprising debut in 2009 to this present that has him dreaming of closing his career at the Olympic Games Paris 2024, the career of Revol is also the journey of an Argentine team that has modified its DNA to become one of the most feared in the renewed HSBC SVNS 2024.
He says it was tough at the beginning of his career but in those early days, he always found a way to have a good time.
Revol says he is extremely lucky to enjoy what is happening today after what he and his team went through.
He says everything was a learning experience so he became what he is now.
He adds he really appreciates the moments and he would never have imagined it.
Revol says four to five years ago he thought he would never win a medal, and now he is enjoying playing finals.
Revol helped Argentina reach the final of the Dubai 7s last week where they lost to South Africa.
Revol and his Argentina team are in pool B alongside the Fiji Airways National Men’s 7s team, France and Spain.
Meanwhile, Fiji will take on France at 8.28pm tomorrow in their first pool match, they will then take on Spain at 11.06pm tomorrow before taking on Argentina at 4.50am Sunday in their final pool match.
The cup quarter finals will kick off at 8.34pm Sunday, the semi finals will start at 12.56am Monday and the cup final will be at 5.23am Monday.
The Fijiana 7s side will play Japan at 7.22pm tomorrow in their first pool match, they will then play Spain at 9.34pm tomorrow before playing Australia at 1.54am Sunday in their last pool match.
