Canoeing, several disappointments and a single hope: Medals do not give them

"Now you have to make blur and new account, my goal was to get into the final and, in the final, well, I have managed to win one. It has helped me to take away the nervousness of the competition and to see that there are new people , people with whom we did not have. The medals do not give them away, "said Saul Craviotto and, where appropriate, the analysis was not crowded, but in others ...

The leader of Spanish canoeing, with two golds, a silver and a bronze in previous games, faced the end of the K1 200 this Thursday as a training and was logical. At 36, explosiveness can no longer be the one who was and the goal of him, the only goal of him, is to win the gold to Germany in the K4 500 that will compete on Saturday. The seventh place of him in the final was expected, not others, at the limit of disappointment.

His partner Carlos Arévalo, for example, competed with him in K1 200 and he was required by a podium. He did his own Craviotto, without going further, that in a recent interview with the world gave him possibilities and celebrated the state of him. In the end he was fifth. Without options during the sprint - a spectacular test as few - surprised the tranquility of him after the defeat. "Getting to the final has already been an achievement," he assured and, like Craviotto, got everything to the K4 500 in which they will be both next to Marcus Walz and Rodrigo Germade.

It was a strange morning at the Sea Forest Waterway precisely because of that, for the calm of a group that reached the Tokyo Canal with three or four medals as a target and will leave with Teresa Perales silver and what happens on Saturday. The clearest example of that rare attitude was the couple formed by Francisco Cubelos and Íñigo Peña in the K2 1000 that came from being runners in the world and ended too far. "We have given everything, we have done very well, but it has not been enough, we keep too on the semifinals and touched a wind channel," they analyzed and added little more.

The only joy of the day was the appearance of the young Antía Jacome, of only 21, at C1 200. He was the closer of the podium, just two tenths. "I can not ask for more, she would have signed it five years ago or even one, I have not lost a medal, I have gained a fifth place," she reflected and the feeling of normality, which was everyone, marked the day . Spanish canoeing added this Wednesday several slabs, but I lay it without dramas: there is the K4 500.
