Lino Socorro, Guerra´s trainer, referred to the great training problems they had due to coldness of the winter season, therefore the younger of the two, Jeinkler has not yet been able to make the new jump (three and a half laps behind in position B) to prevent him from physical and psychological injuries.
In statements to ACN, Socorro said that the introduction of this jump in the executions of the Cuban pair obeys to the rules changes in sync, while he praised the technical progression of the boy, who can do this jump in his opinion.

The Guerra-Aguirre pair will gradually increase their sport shape in the two remaining phases of the contest: Veracruz, Mexico (April 16-17) and Sheffield, England (April 23-24).
