The happy gold rush

You can die killing and you can lose winning. The march is doomed to a more or less close, more or less rapid, more or less complete, more or less final disappearance. But, meanwhile, Spain is getting the most out of it. Four tests, four golds. You cannot protest more vehemently, denounce with more reasons, succumb with more grandeur. To look at the medal table on the morning of Thursday the 24th was to verify that Spain had regained second place, which it had ceded on Wednesday in favor of England. The afternoon session suddenly had the attraction of knowing if, after the sixth day of the Championship had already been resolved, three days from the closing, our country maintained such a privileged and surprising position on the podium among nations.

This was after disputing a long jump in which Miltiadis Tentoglou y Wayne Pinnock they engaged in a duel in the eight and a half meters, and the Greek solved in a last jump of 8.52 for the 8.50 of the Jamaican. And so it continued after the women’s hammer throw, dominated by the Canadian Camryn Rogers with 77.22. No country, except, of course, the United States, continued to have more gold, the unit of measurement in the medal table, than Spain, happy in its golden chimera. A gold is worth all the silvers and all the bronzes together, add up what they add up.

The privileged Spanish position was maintained when, in the 100 meter hurdles, probably the highest level event prior to the Championship, and respected among the names of the final, the title went to the Jamaican Danielle Williams, although his mark (12.43) fell short of expectations. Then came the men’s 400 meters. Jamaica approached us without touching us with the victory of Antonio Watson (44.22). When Femke Bol (Netherlands) took a walk in the 400 hurdles with 51.70, Spain finished off the day remaining second in the medal table. Seeing is believing. Believe to enjoy. Long life -it is a saying- for the march.
