There he continued, in a place he did not want to leave. It was like resisting awakening after a dream. I'm not leaving here, no. The track, Tokyo. That site and that moment are unique, the best of a life, short life, but they can be much better. At age 21 and after a preparation between the artisanal and the emotional, the margin of improvement of Asier Martínez in the 110 fences is enormous. The sixth place in an Olympic final places this appearance of Spanish athletics ahead of Javier Lorage and Carlos Room, two great of the tradition of our fences. They were seventh. Then Orlando Ortega arrived, made out, in Cuba. Asier arrives from Zizur, Pamplona, Navarra, Spain.
Tokyo's finalists are presented at their way out to the track as if they were 'Vedettes'. Athletics look for the 'show'. Each one leaves a gesture. Asier, none. He went out to the shot, focused on what he had in his head. Frivolities, nothing. He looked at the front, on Calle Dos, not to him rivals, monsters like Grant Holloway, who ate the Olympic Final. Scenic fear. In Spanish, on the other hand, it puts it. As happened at 800 with Adrián Ben or in Triple with Ana Pelleteiro, there comes a generation of fire competitors. Maybe not in the best records, not yet, but in the best of themselves in his days D.
Asier was, by improving its 13.27 of semifinals to take them to 13.22. "It's the brand I know it was worth in these games and it has come out when he had to leave," said Navarro, serene, after they were forced to leave the track and go towards the mixed area. He did not want, because the Tokyo sun, scorching, is the place of him in the sun, as if he gave a tour of the Pamplona Square after the cumshot of San Fermín.
Very technical in his passage through the fences, the Navarro left last after the departure, but the passage of each obstacle consolidated his figure and, from 90 meters, progressed sustained to cross the sixth goal. The tip speed of him in the test was 33.9 kilometers per hour. He was as fast as he could run in an end with a podium out of reach of him. At the moment. Hansle Pachment, the Jamaican who was imposed on Holloway, did it at 13.04.
The American was the great loser, since La Plata does not fill an athlete that has been as superior this year, in which it has been at one hundredth of the world's record. He has run at 12.81. With that time, silver tastes chocolate. He could not disguise him despite the hugs offered to the winner. The other American, Davon Allen, stayed out of the podium with 13.14, in a final that restores something of the power lost by Jamaica at the masculine speed. Usain Bolt has left them orphans.
"This has been the best of my career and my life, and now I want to celebrate it with a good party with my gang and my training group," said Asier. All had been very earrings of the Vallist on television. Métele, Asier, Mételee !! With that scream of war he concluded his messages mostly in a video sent from Pamplona.
His coach was beginning, François Beoringyan, held in the capital Navarre 19 years ago. He directs the group of height and fences of the Atetic Pamplona, but does not live from athletics. Remote from elite preparation circuits, he soon knew what was between hands and sent navarro's videos to important Vallists with whom he contacted to help him improve with the advice and corrections of him.
Before the final, Beoringyan was already clear that "if Asier has been able to run at 13.27 with 21 years, why not think of 13.10 with 29". Now they are 13.22. With 13.10, it is possible to settle at the great podiums. It is with which in Tokyo the bronze Ronald Levy was placed, also from Jamaica. At the moment, he is already the second youngest Spanish to be an Olympic finalist (classified between the first eight), after Antonio Corgos in length, in Moscow.
The coach, raised in France, is a lover of the Cuban School of the Fences, which is distinguished by a refusal technique in the passage of obstacles. Three strides, measures, da asier between one and the other. He does, despite being myopic, with two diopters of graduation, without glasses or lenses. "I see little, the truth," recognizes the athlete, between laughter. "He makes the memory race, he does not need them, he is focused on his street, with very marked automatisms," Beoringyan adds.
"I'm looking forward to more, but what has to come, will come," the Vallist concluded. Paris awaits him, with 24 years, but before many other things. The union that he has encountered with the coach of him has been key. In the case, the postponement of the games one year by the pandemic was an opportunity to improve. Student of political science in Bilbao, he saved the movements by following the 'Online' race and be able to be more time in Pamplona. That tune with the technician is not strictly technical, but also emotional. Beoringyan says it's like a second father for this son of a vallist. Before traveling to Tokyo, he said, "Do not ever think about what something is impossible, forget and give cane." "Meteleeee!"Date Of Update: 05 August 2021, 00:22
