GP Catones, La Coruña – Who is Coming?

GP CaNtones, La Coruña – Who is Coming?

This time around I won’t be able to be there personally, but I’m lucky enough to have a friend to cover the race.
His name is Antonio, and he’ll be taking pictures (nicer than mine I’m sure). I’m dying to say it, so I’ll say it, he’s our correspondent in Spain. Unpaid of course, just like my assistant, fact of which I shouldn’t brag, but I do anyway.
But now to what’s important.
Spain is holding tomorrow probably the most crucial race of the season before the World Championships in London.
Gran Premio Cantones, La Coruña, is gonna be the last chance for about 150 athletes to qualify for London.
Here’s a promo video:

Link is gonna take you to Facebook.

I’ve heard the circuit is really fast and the weather is gonna be really nice. I envy our Spanish correspondent, La Coruña is a nice place to visit and to eat. I’ll miss the “Polbo á feira” (octopus with papikra and olive oil).

As usual I picked 10 racewalkers at random, some of them I know personally, the others, this time I won’t have the chance to meet but I wish them luck, just like every one else obviously.
