The club “deeply regrets” that the victory in the most important flag of the season “has been tarnished by statements that it understands harm sensitivities.”
Bermeo-Urdaibai Arraun Elkartea has described as “unfortunate” the statements of his rower Iñaki Goikoetxea, who after winning the La Concha Flag, remembered the ETA prisoners, especially his friend Iurgi Garitagoitia, an ETA prisoner who is serving a sentence 44 years in prison for the murder of businessman Inaxio Uria.
According to the club, these statements “were made in a personal capacity” after the athlete’s presence on the ETB boat was requested. Likewise, they have pointed out that the rower in question “was not the one who was initially assigned to represent the team” before the media in the event of victory.
The entity “deeply regrets” that the victory in the most important flag of the season has been marred by some “statements that it understands harm sensitivities.”
