Mónica Gutiérrez (not federated), Spanish novena of all time (1:10:56) in Coimbra
Virtually unknown to the athletic fan, the Spanish Mónica Gutiérrez has achieved an authentic marcon in the Half Marathon of Coimbra disputed this Sunday in the Portuguese town. Gonzalez, 34 (born on October 4, 1985), has been imposed with a record of 1h10'56 ”, a real barbarity especially in the case of an athlete that is not federated and on which the RFEA barely offers his best brand in 1,500 with 4:42, as reflected by Jesús Lago on Twitter.
A brutal improvement in this 2019
It turns out that Gutierrez, as Lago pointed out in his thread of this social network, accumulates in this 2019 nine best brands from 1h21 ’from Guijuelo to 1h10’56” from Coimbra (10 ’improvement between both). He has won the stockings of Segovia, Salamanca, Burgos, Abel Antón, Béjar and several others. Last Sunday, without going any further, he ran in Burgos at 1:15:25. That has raised some comments on networks, since nobody understands that Gonzalez lacks RFEA license to compete at the elite level and under the protection of the federation to people who question the ‘purity’ of those records.
The truth is that Gutierrez's record is one of the best in history and certainly deserves special mention in the equals Alessandra Aguilar's mark in Copenhagen 2014, when she was 21st in the World Championship from the Danish capital.
