Athletistic/Football. Argentina national team striker Lionel Messi answered journalists’ questions about possible participation in the Olympics.

“I spoke with coach Javier Mascherano and we both understand the situation. It’s hard to think about the Olympics now because we’re competing in the America’s Cup. This will mean that I won’t be at the club for two or three months in a row, and what’s more, I’m no longer old enough to play everywhere.

I have to choose carefully and playing two tournaments in a row would be too difficult. I was lucky enough to participate in the Olympic Games and win them. It was an incredible experience at the football level,” Messi was quoted as saying by ESPN.
