News : Esther Guerrero achieves an authoritarian and historic double in Vallehermoso
Just 10 minutes have separated the two golds like two suns that Esther Guerrero has achieved in the Spanish Athletics Championship. The one from Banyoles announced a few days ago that it was going to double the 800 and 1,500, something rarely seen in the history of the championships. But in this atypical year the Girona-born, in a tremendous state of form, decided that it was time to play and take risks. Yesterday she already showed in the semifinals to be fine and to be the great favorite in both tests. And this Sunday at the Vallehermoso Stadium, where the middle and background have been played, it has been immeasurable, unique, authoritarian.
His marks of the season (2: 00.56 in 800 and 4: 03.13 in 1,500) anticipated the feat of Joan Lleonart’s disciple, who first, with the law of least effort, watching his rivals out of the corner of his eye, he won the 800 in 2: 06.23 -his fourth outdoor title- and, without time to breathe, he revalidated in 1,500, in unequal heads-up with Soli Pereira, with a record of 4: 23.47.
Victoria Sauleda in 800, with 2: 06.71, and Solange Pereira in 1,500 with 4: 25.39, had the honor of supporting the best Spanish midfielder today, who emulated, as double champion, Coro Fuentes and Carmen Valero, the only ones that they had achieved similar success; the latter, three years in a row, between 1974 and 1976.
