According to information provided by Hospital de São João, in Oporto, the 32-year-old player, passed away this Friday at noon, four days after the cardiac arrest suffered during a training session.

Quintana was, currently, one of the most notable handball goalkeepers. Born in Havana, became a Portuguese citizen and played for the National Team, since 2014, writing his name on the best campaigns ever in European Cups (6th, in 2020) and World Cups (10th, a month ago).

This is a moment to pay tribute to an outstanding athlete who gave everything for the jerseys he played with. His legacy and strong sporting spirit will remain forever as a reference to the youngsters aiming at a handball career.
