I am truly saddened by the passing of Prof. Arbena. I worked with him briefly in 2010-2011 and kept in touch since. He was always very friendly, professional, and insightful. His legacy in the history of sport in Latin America will be eternal. It was my sincere privilege to have met him and received his support. Que descanse en paz el muy querido y admirado Profesor Dr. Don José Arbena.
