Robert Lagos: from Cancun to conquer Americas - May 13, 2012


POSTED BY:

In an environment like Chilean with few sports achievements internationally, especially in our beloved basketball we must emphasize news as obtaining Liga Americas title by Pioneros de Quintana Roo-Cancun in Formosa (Argentina), which had the presence of a Chilean known by the followers of basket in our country.
Robert Lagos had a long career in Chile playing in Colo Colo, Liceo Mixto, Osorno, Llanquihue, Universidad Autonoma, Castro, Universidad Catolica, Petrox, UDE Temuco and Universidad de Concepcion. In each team gave their contribution as forward who always had a good shot, physical and character that made him to be respected. That same character and leadership qualities are those that serve to a player to be a coach later, which is precisely the way that Robert runs today and is at the top of Latinamerica taking part of technical staff of Spanish Pep Claros like assistant coach.
And is not little the present of Lagos in Mexico, because in addition to the achieving of Pioneros and their work with junior teams, he will be part of the Mexican NT staff, starting in the next days to prepare participation in Centrobasket in next June in Puerto Rico, which is the first step in the trial to reach the Olympics for Brazil in 2016.
For many people is a mystery how a Chilean arrives to Mexico to make himself a name, Lagos clarifies how there was a perfect fit between his retirement as a player and his beginnings as a coach: 'I planned my retirement from obtaining a degree at the Universidad Autonoma (studying and playing). And my departure abroad came with a job as Marketing Director and Sales in a company that provides furniture to hotels and restaurants in Riviera Maya'.

And the link with the basket in Mexico: 'one day my wife Monica invited me to a Mexican National Team game, where we known to Pioneros player. He invited me to train with the team and that's how i began my realationship with Pioneros people, until one day arrived Daniel Jaule as head coach, who made me the invitation to be his assistant coach. After that, Pioneros president proposed me to coach youth divisions to deploy an overcrowding and early talent detection project, and a brand positioning for Pioneros, which produced very good dividends. Imagine!.. Is satisfactory work and evolve this way, coaching junior teams, being part of Pioneros technical staff and soon in Mexican NT'.

Regarding to his present and future as coach, highlights how important has been working with renowned names and how much benefit his stage of growth and learning in his career: 'Currently i am in a great professional learning process, had the privilege of working with great coaches as well you mentioned, the Argentine Daniel Jaule, Uruguayan Alberto Espasandin, the Puerto Rican Julio Toro and now with the Catalan known globally, Pep Claros.
And my perspective is increase projecting myself in elite basketball. Precisely the second half of May we will start the process of Mexican NT with the objective to reach Olympics in Brazil 2016, and first we will compete in the Central American and Caribbean Games qualifier for the next World Championship. And regarding to be a head coach, there's no doubt that it's possible not only in Mexico, but also in other countries, with all the experience you can win and get to take the elite basketball, powering possibility of becoming one'.

Knowing his present, now we must ask him about differences between Mexico and Chile: some years ago, see american players come to Chile after played in Mexican league were usual, today that reality is quite far because budgets are more restricted. Which differences can you see between both countries? What needs Chile to reach the level of Mexico?
'Differences between Chile and Mexico are many and i feel that isn't the point because both realities are completely different. I do believe undoubtedly important and fundamental, is that Chilean basketball urgently needs a generational change in its structure and all those who are in front at various levels of the organization must be competent persons with high professional standards, which are constantly trained in that learning process. I am sure that is the way we must follow. Today more than ever, we need professionals who live for basketball and not living of it. All that I mentioned is what Chile needs to have a better quality both in the league, as in NT to project itself internationally first in South America and then in other latitudes'.

Talking about Chile NT, recently were delivered a new roster to face Southamerican Championship in Argentina: What is your opinion of the change that is leading?
'I think it's great that exists renovation in the National Team with new generations. Is always good to project young players. I remember seeing very good elements in the Fiba Americas U-16 tournament here in Cancun, which left me a very good taste.
I also believe is essential that Federation involved with a national plan that work from Arica to Punta Arenas and decentralize our sport, to develop a recruitment program to continue early identifying players with potential in the Chilean basketball. I'm sure that in many corners of our geography, there are talented players who need a chance, so we must invest resources in that'.

Interesting position frankly expresses Lagos, and coincides in some aspects with what we live today in our country especially with the NT with an almost total replacement in the adult squad.

Finally, our countryman understands and appreciates the attention that has reached his milestone in our land to people linked to basket: 'I have only thankful words for all the people who have been important in my sporting and personal growth. Give my love and hugs to all my family and friends. Also best regards to all those of one or another way I met through basketball'.

And finally, it sends a message: 'I do not believe in luck, then in the success achieved with sacrifice, hard work and dedication to work every day, is the key to grow and evolve, there are no limits, and the only limit be the sky'.
