News : How to follow it live by streaming
This Friday we have an unavoidable appointment within the athletic calendar. Despite the fact that we are still immersed in the indoor track season (after the dispute last weekend of the Spanish Championship in just a few days the European Championship in Torun will be played with 37 selected Spanish athletes), this February 26 there will already be a meeting with Olympic minimums in between. Will be a 5,000 in the open air in Toulon (in France) in which three Spanish athletes will participate (Abdessamad Oukhelfen, Chiki Pérez and Carlos Mayo), three of our best long distance runners of the moment.
A minimum … and what falls
There is time, but if that mark falls already in February to be in the Tokyo Games, all the better. By the way, on the starting list we see names as powerful as those of the Gauls Morhad Amdouni, Jimmy Gressier or the Dutch Mike Foppen. The mark to match or lower is 13:13:50. Craziness? “We want to make a personal mark and we are going to try the minimum, of course,” says Chiki Pérez. For his part, Carlos assures that “si the question is if i will try: of course the race is mounted for it. Another different thing is that it comes out. But of course, there is a lot of work done in Bronchales and there is no lack of desire, I hope at least to give my PB a good bite ”.
