Paul Blanchard, Chief Executive of Surrey Sports Park, said: “We are delighted to welcome Argentina to our impressive line-up of Olympic and Paralympic teams training at Surrey Sports Park. We are proud to be part of a county hosting more teams than any other in the UK and we know that your members and the Guildford community will enjoy training alongside these elite athletes.”
