Questioned by Pacojó about a reversal on his withdrawal, Javier Fernandez He pointed out that it is "of those people that when he makes a decision is usually forever", thus closing the door to a possible return to the competition.

"It is a show that we are not used to seeing. We reinvent ourselves every year. There will be European and Olympic friends and medalists.
