"It's been very tough times, in all my years I have not seen such a good relationship with the rest of the team and that's why it hurts more, but I am very proud to have made a state record with these partners, and all I want is just to thank them. The triple jump contest has been another thing, I still do not understand what has happened, the medals were affordable, I have not entered in competition at any time, I had mixed feelings, I do not know, do not understand anything ", said Xavi.
