Marta is the athletics version of Arantxa. Fighting spirit at its best. She doesn't have a great potential, but she fights for her life and that's why I love her so much.
Casado is so boring. His 1500m tactics are annoying and it will be hard to see him handling the first position in the last lap with the Africans running for their lives.
They can give gold to Pakillo already.
High Jump and Discus Throw is a question of luck. A good moment and you have a medal. A bad first throw/jump and you're pretty much history.
Spain has a slight chance of a medal in the 3000m steeplechase. La Armada is very strong and ready to perform well in a slow race.
This year our runners in 3000m steeplechase are not performing well and now in Europe is also the swede that was close to beat the European record yesterday and has the second best european mark ever some weeks ago .... sooo very difficult ....
Yes Ruth and Mario is a question of luck, hope they have, they deserve it!!
Also is a woman in 3000 steeplechase, Rosa Morató with the 4th European mark this year, but i can't see her winning a medal, maybe she could beat the national record in a fast race
I'm amazed with Naide and Nelson, i belive that thet can give very nice moments for Portugal in Osaka, i saw them in Madrid and
