Argentina’s captain is about to play in the Olympics for a fifth time, those appearances spanning three different decades. There are athletes at the Tokyo Games who were not even born — one was five years from being born — when Scola won a gold medal in Athens 17 years ago. Yes, he’s been around for a while. And there’s the genesis of that daily wish. “For the love of God, please, please, please — this is what I tell myself every morning in the mirror — please do not look old,” Scola said. “That’s all I want.”
