One of the great stilettos of the Spanish Half Marathon team, the athlete from Zaragoza Toni Abadía has just announced that he will not be able to take part in the World Half Marathon Championship that will be held on October 17 in the Polish town of Gdynia. Antonio Abadía, Jorge Blanco, Ayad Lamdassem, Adel Mechaal and Juan Antonio “Chiki” Pérez were the athletes summoned by the RFEA to participate in the only international test of selections that will be held in this 2020 in ‘era COVID’, but finally the Aragonese has fallen when being in recent contact with a positive for coronavirus.

14 days isolated

“Finally, I will not be able to participate in the World Half Marathon Championship, I have been in direct contact with a person who has been positive in a PCR test for COVID for more than 15 minutes for several days and following the protocol waiting to be tested, 14 days isolated ”, the athlete himself has communicated on his ‘Twitter’ account.

After the controversy in that preselection of athletes for the competition (Camilo Santiago or Iraitz Arrospide were left out despite having done minimum when it was at 63 ′), We will see who the coach decides to include after this very delicate absence for options of ours in Poland. From these lines we take the opportunity to send a lot of encouragement to Toni.
