News : Carro lays the first stone of the doublet; Warrior, to make history
Esther Guerrero has managed to access the final of the two tests that it will double in this 100th edition of the Spanish Athletics Championship that is being held in four different venues and that has experienced its first big day this Saturday. The woman from Girona has registered in the 800 and 1500 with the aim of making a double that only two athletes have achieved in history and she is already in both finals. This Sunday she is the big favorite in both races.
Carro surpasses a very fighting Maple
The Madrilenian Fernando Carro, embarked on the challenge of reaching a rare doublet 3,000 obstacles-5,000 in the Spanish athletics championships, this Saturday met half the challenge by getting his third consecutive title in the first discipline with a time of 8: 30.31.
Throughout its 100-year history in the nationals, only Constantino Miranda (1946), Manuel Alonso (1961) and Javier Álvarez Salgado (1966) have achieved a similar doublet. In energy saving mode, Carro allowed Sebastián Martos and Ibrahim Ezzaydouni to do and only when he entered the last turn did he take the head of the group so as not to abandon it. Dani Arce pushed him a lot on the straight but arrived 34 hundredths later, followed by Ezzaydouni (8: 32.10).
This Sunday, at 7:40 p.m., Carro will start in the direct final of 5,000 in search of the second title.
