Esther Guerrero will attack this month a national record of 1996
Catalan athlete Esther Guerrero has announced that it will seek this July 21 (20:50) the Spanish Record of 2,000 meters. A record that since 1996 has held Julia Vaquero, who stopped the clock at 5:47:81 in Nice. For Guerrero, Olympic in the 800 and Spanish Champion of 1,500, it will be the first post-confinement competition and she will try to do it at home, at the Tussols-Basil athletics stadium in Olot (she is from Banyoles, also in Girona).
"Several weeks ago, in a conversation with Joan Lleonart and CN Banyoles We decided to try to organize a safe and close competition, in every way, putting a bit of normality to this strange season. The first objective is almost fulfilled: OLOT is the site ”, Guerrero commented in a message on Twitter, adding that“ my track and my companions, I can not ask for more. I don't know what the result will be, but having the opportunity is saying a lot. THANK YOU! See you on Tuesday".
The truth is that we are very excited to see the Catalan in action again, has a personal mark at 1,500 from 4:05:70 and 5: 28.93 at the mile (2012 mark). "Until a month ago I had not touched the track or knew how I was, but I have been concentrated in Andorra and I have carried out training sessions in the tartan that have indicated that I am not so bad," Guerrero commented for the magazine redor Corredor ’.
