Héctor Santos breaks down the door and pays the best tribute to Lamela
"I've seen many videos of Yago Lamela since childhood and it's a pride to overcome him," he said. Hector Santos to 'Agencia EFE'. I had just achieved the National record sub'23, which until now was in the possession of the greatest jumper in the history of our country. The Spaniard wore this mark from, eye to datum, 21 years ago. It is a receipt and almost obligatory to remember it after its ill-fated march just over five years ago.
A baby when Iago started making history
Santos had just a few months when Iago gave the first blow on the table with that Record of the Spanish Championship sub'23. On that occasion he jumped 8.05 meters, while Hector, respectful but cheeky, has reached 8.11 meters.
The azulgrana Hector Santos, who was born on January 6 of that year 98, has everything your friend can tell you Diego Moisés Santos, Huelva also retains the record of the championships of 100 meters and was a generation partner and friend of Lamela.
Both shared room in the indoor World Cup in Maebashi 1999, in which the jumper dazzled the world with the European record of 8.56.
Leader of the national and European ranking sub'23
A jump, the one of Héctor, that has sneaked in, besides and if that was not enough, among the 10 best in history at the absolute level of our country. Not only that, but Santos is the leader of the year of the national and European U23 ranking, something that, with caution, makes us dream and makes us dream that his roof is still far away.
The Huelva player of FC Barcelona explained about his evolution that technically it has improved "a lot" and is "much faster" after the pre-season work that "has been noticed". He will have another opportunity to demonstrate that the Doha World Cup and the Olympic Games in Tokyo are within his reach at the U23 European Championship, which takes place from July 11 to 14 in Gavle (Sweden), where he aspires to medal.
