Polo argentino: 119 años de historia… / Argentinian Polo: 119 years of history…

6 Dic

En el transcurso de las últimas semanas, todos los medios de polo estuvieron enfocados principalmente en un sólo tema: el 119vo Campeonato Argentino Abierto. Y no es para menos, ya que es uno de los torneos de polo más importantes a nivel nacional e internacional. Pero ¿qué es el Argentino Abierto? ¿Cuándo comenzó? A continuación, te contamos un poco sobre su historia.

El Campeonato Argentino Abierto de Polo es el máximo certamen de interclubes, y el quinto en antigüedad, a nivel mundial que se disputa anualmente. Éste torneo se inauguró en 1893 por The River Plate Polo Asociation. Por éste motivo, en sus comienzos el nombre del torneo fue River Plate Polo Championship. En aquella época, la pasión por el polo estaba concentrada en dos escenarios: Buenos Aires y el sur de Santa Fe. Debido a las largas distancias que había que recorrer, y de manera de atenuar los altos costos que representaba el traslado, el primer torneo se disputó en dos etapas: la primera tuvo lugar en el Hurlingham Club de Buenos Aires y la segunda en Cañada de Gómez. La modalidad consistía en dos torneos de igual valor, en dónde la copa la obtenía el equipo que fuera el primero en ganar dos veces. El primer equipo que se consagró campeón del Argentino Abierto fue Hurlingham.

Para 1921, y sólo por un año, la autoridad a cargo del torneo fue la Federación Argentina de Polo. No obstante, y de manera definitiva, para 1923 apareció la Asociación Argentina de Polo. Es a partir de entonces que el torneo pasa a llamarse el Campeonato Argentino Abierto de Polo y comienza a jugarse en el Campo Argentino de Polo de Buenos Aires, ubicado en el barrio de Palermo.

Éste torneo junto con el Abierto de Hurlingham y el Abierto de Tortugas  -los tres más importantes a nivel mundial- compone la Triple Corona.Éste último se inició en 1971 cuando Los Indios y el Tortugas Country Club organizaron una competencia común como consecuencia de las frecuentes interrupciones ocasionadas por las lluvias a sus propios torneos de polo.  Para hacerse con el trofeo de la Triple Corona -el más importante en el mundo del polo- el equipo en cuestión debe haber ganado los tres torneos abiertos. Desde sus inicios, los equipos que consiguieron la Triple Corona  fueron: Coronel Suárez (1972, 1974,1975 y 1977), Santa Ana (1973), Ellerstina (1994 y 2010) y  La Aguada (2003).

Abierto de Palermo, Buenos Aires, Argentina

During the last weeks, all media polo was focused in one theme: the 119° Argentine Open Polo Championship (Campeonato Argentino Abierto). And it is no surprise considering it is one of the most important national and international polo tournaments. But, what is the Argentine Open? When did it began?

The Argentine Open Polo Championship (Campeonato Argentino Abierto) is the most famous and significant interclub tournament in the world and takes place once in a year. It was inaugurated in 1893 by The River Plate Polo Association. This explains why, at the beginning, its name was River Plate Polo Championship. By that time, passion for polo was mainly concentrated in Buenos Aires and the south of Santa Fe.  Due to the long distances that players had to travel, and as a way of mitigating the high costs produced by all this movilization, the first tournament was played in two parts: the first took place in Buenos Aires´s Hurlingham Club and the second in Cañada de Gómez –Santa Fe-. Although both tournaments were of equal importance, teams were obliged to win both of them to obtain the trophy. The first one that won this championship was Hurlingham Club.

By 1921, and just for one year, the authority in charge of the tournament was the Argentina Polo Federation. Nevertheless, by 1923 appeared the Argentina Polo Association, which is in charge still nowadays. Since then, two significant changes occurred: the tournament’s name changed to Argentine Open Polo Championship (Campeonato Argentino Abierto) and it began to be played in the Argentina Polo Field, in Palermo, Buenos Aires.

It is important to remark that Argentine Open Polo Championship (Campeonato Argentino Abierto) together with Open Hurlingham and Open Tortugas –the tree most important in the world- form a well known tournament known as Triple Corona. It was initiated by 1971 when Los Indios and Tortugas Country Club organized a common competence as a consequence of the usual interruptions caused by rain in their own fields. To be crowned as the champion of this tournament, a team must win the three of them. The only teams that achieved this are: Coronel Suárez (1972, 1974, 1975 y 1977), Santa Ana (1973), Ellerstina (1994 y 2010) y La Aguada (2003).
