actually it doesn't. at all. it's been a progress over a certain amount of time, ranging from the early 90s leading up to the current domination. the only thing spain did was tapping into its vast human recources as a country with a huge affinity towards sports and combine it with up-to-date concepts how to develop infrastructure and training grounds. add the that a nearly perfect climate for outdoor activities and off you go. it was out in the open, literally. no secrets whatsoever, no "overnight" success.
