A long jump, whose track was mistakenly erased before the measurement in the length final, marked the outcome of the Spanish indoor athletics championship, which ended in the hands of
with a mark of 6.51 meters.
Two days after winning the
title in the pentathlon with a new record for Spain (4,501 points)
, who arrived with a mark of 6.55 (6.49 on Friday in the pentathlon), was preparing to fight for the double, but the mishap of the first round threw her out of focus.
His best mark was 6.24, with four nulls.
A record that earned him bronze.
The multifaceted athlete from Barcelona was contesting the rank of favorite for triple champion and defending champion Fatima Diame and seemed to have ratified it with her long first jump, apparently close to 6.50, but the haste in the use of the rake left the mark on The limb.

to hang silver in length with 6.31, the best jump of her career and fourth best Spanish U-20 brand of all time.
"I'm not going to lie to you, I have anger inside"
Hours later, María Vicente parked her "anger" at the first big jump that was erased and focused on future goals: "If I qualify, in the European Championship that jump will be valid."
"Yes, it is true that I came to look for something more than a 6.24 and a bronze medal. Nothing happens. This is not my test. I came with a blindfold, it could go well and it could go wrong. I'm going to lie, I have anger inside. It's
not something that depended on me. I had made a good jump on the first try
. This leaves me looking forward to the 60 hurdles next week. If I qualify for the European, that jump I will put it valid, "he assured EFE.
María Vicente acknowledged that on the second and third attempts, after the rake mistakenly erased her first jump - about 6.50 meters -, her head played "a trick on her."
I was angry. I did not know how to handle the situation
. Later, I looked for him and he did not come out. The two companions who have been ahead of me have been very good, even with a personal best (Tessy Ebosele) and the season (Fatima Diame, champion with 6.51). I'm happy for them, "commented the CD Nike Running athlete.
