Olimpia de Asuncion is the 2016 METRO CAHMP and continues strong this 2017 season.

With the acquisition of Javier Martinez (188-G-78, agency: DTMones) and Leandro Ferreira along
with youngster Lucas Saldivar,they consolidated a very strong team for this season.

Not only Olimpia de Asuncion is thinking inthis season but also
Olimpia de Asuncion wants to participate in the Liga Sudamericana.


The 2017 Liga Sudamericana is scheduled for August or September of this year.
With the mind in repeating last years championship.


They are also thinking in hiring
a pair of big foreigeners to have equal forces to compete internationally.

Weeks to come will be crucial to find out this so important acquisitions, because it is so important to
have foreigners play together with the rest of the team.

Javier Martinez will play a big roll in the hiring of great foreigners due to his profound knowledge of
international leagues and the picking of great foreigners will be absolutely strategic for Olimpia de Asuncion s outcome

Olimpia s actual roster includes Guillermo Araujo (204-C-82, agency: Pro Sports), Adolfo Lopez (199-F-89),
Federico Mellone (193-F/G-85), Alejandro Peralta (195-F-91), Lucas Saldivar, Diego Paredes.

General Manager from Olimpia is working very hard with Olimpias coaching staff and Olimpias president
to develop this strong South American team.

Of course it will not be very easy to build a succesful team they sai to Eurobasket, but we will do our best.
Paraguay has not participated in any international clubs competition since 2008 and the coming back will
be very hard as any other beginning.

Arnaldo Cajes , Olimpias GM talked to Eurobasket as well as Coach Juan Pablo Feliu (agency: DTMones ). Both consider this a great opportunity
not only for Olimpia but for all Paraguayan basket ball to support Olimpia in all manners

The CPB is also playing a big roll in trying to bring the SERIES to Asuncion. Speculations about it are many, it will not be easy due to costs
and also we do not have a gym with international standards.
