The Spanish Olympic Committee has received 9,000 masks sent by the Chinese Olympic Committee with the help of the Juan Antonio Samaranch Foundation and will be distributed in various social and sports sectors to cope with the coronavirus pandemic.

The President of the Spanish Olympic Committee Alejandro Blanco explained how the aid will be distributed. “The masks arrived this week and will be distributed to the Spanish Federations, the Spanish Refugee Aid Center (CEAR), the Red Cross and the Committee itself for future events that will be held at the Spanish institution. We greatly thank the Chinese Olympic Committee for its empathy towards us at this moment. Their gesture should be highly praised, even though it’s only a drop of water in the middle of the pandemic” said Alejandro Blanco.

“The Chinese Olympic Committee has long expressed concern about the situation of Spanish sports,” said Juan Antonio Samaranch II, vice president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and head of the foundation.
