Virginia Torrecilla and the message after overcoming a brain tumor that moved Pau Gasol

The player of the Atlético de Madrid, Virginia Torrecilla, she was successfully operated on for a brain tumor, as she herself explained upon discharge. “I won the most important game of my life and for you to know that this is the beginning of something great.” The player recounted everything she has experienced in recent weeks through a video uploaded to Instagram, in which she ended up launching a beautiful message of vitality that moved on the networks and especially to Pau Gasol.

“You get out of anything, all you need is desire and strength. I am the most positive aunt in the world. I only had one way and that was to do this in order to continue. I hope this is the beginning of something great. If I lived life before, now I will live it twice. Thank everyone who has been with me. To my family, my friends, my doctor and Atlético de Madrid, who has given everything for me, ”said Virginia just before being discharged.

The Spanish center could not help but respond to these emotional words from the mattress player. “Your smile and your words have moved me and show enormous mental strength. You are a great player, but what you transmit to us as a person is much more important. Although by the love I read you will already know, the whole world of sports is with you. Lots of strength, Virginia, ”he shared.

This is how he lived it

Torrecilla also took advantage of his improvement after the operation to tell how he has lived through this difficult situation. “I returned to Madrid with a headache and cervical pain a week ago. They did a CT scan and found a tumor. At first they thought it wasn’t evil, but imagine what it meant to me“, said.

They admitted me immediately, on Monday I went into the operating room and everything was great. The operation has been successful. I have to keep it. I just wanted all of this because it is important to me that everyone who fights a disease sees it and continues to fight day by day, “he said.

“I never imagined that something like this could happen to me or someone in my family. I want to send a lot of strength to everyone and I wanted you to know for myselfTorrecilla finished. Thus, the messages of encouragement from the world of sports were immediate. From the support of Álvaro Arbeloa Even Atlético Femenino’s teammates turned to the midfielder.


Concussions in sports, prevention is taking small steps

Fewer accidents and increased player safety. This is the good news that representatives of World Rugby, the governing body of world ovalism, wanted to share at the symposium on health held from March 3 to 5 in Paris. The figures for the 2019 World Cup in Japan are actually quite satisfactory.

Before the competition, the clarification of the rules to avoid high tackles and the severity instructions given to the referees, who distributed more yellow cards (+ 74%) and red cards (+ 138%), paid off: a drop in number of concussions by 28%, and an overall decrease in other injuries (83 per 1,000 hours of play versus 90 at the 2015 World Cup).

Rugby takes the path of wisdom, but discipline is only at the beginning of the path. And the obstacles are legion. France has been testing since the start of the season in Federal 2 and other lower leagues the ban on two-tackles and the lowering of the tackle line at the waist. 70 games are under analysis and results will fall in April. In the meantime, the French Rugby Federation (FFR) has surveyed the clubs concerned. Over 600 responded, and almost a third judged the experiment “Very negative”. Suffice to say that the change among the pros is far from guaranteed.

Increase awareness in the amateur world

In most debates, there is always a question of better protecting the tackled player. What neurologist Jean-François Chermann regrets, specialist in concussions and referent on the subject for some clubs including Racing 92 in rugby or PSG in football: “I published a study on the Top 14 with a monitoring of concussions over two years for Racing 92 and the French Stadium, and I found that 70% of the concussions touched the tackler and not the tackle. You also have to be interested in rucks, these phases of the game where players try to scratch the balls and which generate a lot of concussions. Also be careful to remain vigilant on certain measures, such as consultation with an independent specialist within 48 hours for affected players, which I had helped to set up. Some people want to delete it. It would be a serious mistake. “

Nothing is won, even in rugby, however pioneer. In other sports, it’s time to improve devices, or even just awareness. In football, if the professional world is more and more reactive, the amateur universe is still “Too often in denial, with educators and young players who don’t want to hear about it”, says Emmanuel Orhant, the medical director of the French Football Federation. For whom, beyond football, there is a lack of general mobilization on the subject: “There should be a common message that should be disseminated by the Ministry of Sports and the French National Olympic and Sports Committee. Because for me, this is really a public health problem “, hammered the doctor.

Awareness needed in many sports

“When I warned about the risks in rugby ten years ago, it took a while for the authorities to understand that I was not against discipline but that it was essential to take radical measures, says Jean-François Chermann. I then worked with judo, where many thought the problem was anecdotal until it was shown that 30% of the judokas of the French teams had done at least one. I now work with basketball, and I have found that 20% of the players have already been concussed in the France team. We still have to overcome many resistances to move forward. “

Doctors, however, guard against overly alarmist speech. “A concussion is not necessarily dramatic, says Emmanuel Orhant. However, mismanagement of the concussion can have serious consequences. This is what we need to make clear in the sports world. “


Banning heads for young footballers in debate

In late February, the British and Scottish football federations banned heads in training for players under the age of 12. A decision notably motivated by a publication by the University of Glasgow on former professional players: they were 3.5 times more likely to develop a neurodegenerative disease, according to this 2019 study.

In France, MP Bruno Studer (LREM, Bas-Rhin) has just written to the Minister for Sport. “Maybe we should delay the time when we make heads, adjust the weight and inflation of balloons according to age. I’m not in the process of being banned, but you have to wonder “said the chosen one.

Doctor Emmanuel Orhant wants to be reassuring: “There is no scientific link between head play and neurodegenerative problems. The English decision (…) obeys a simple precautionary principle. “
