A BRONZE MEDAL!

Xavi pulls the thorn and gets the bronze medal…

This afternoon in a competition of more than 3.5 hours, our athlete has finally removed the thorn winning a bronze medal where the main protagonist has been the wind.

"It has been very difficult, first because it has been quite long and then by the strong gusts of wind blowing, sometimes more than 7m/s. I think I controlled the situation pretty well , the key was not to do invalid jumps, it was to pay full attention when listening to Miguel Ángel. We had practiced the long jump throughout this season and the only downside would be that I could have won silver or gold since the difference was 6 and 8 cm respectively. With no doubt I have finally removed the thorn and not just in this tournament but also at the London Games. I simply give my thanks to my coach and guide as they have played a key role in the competition. "said Xavi.
