Tokyo 2020 | 110 hurdles
The Navarrese athlete wins his series with a time of 13.32, one hundredth of his personal best
Asier Martínez grows race by race. The trajectory of the Navarrese hurdler does not find a brake and today in an entire Olympic Stadium, Martínez has allowed himself the luxury of winning his series of the 110 meters hurdles with undeniable authority, to the point of staying one hundredth of his best mark. A 13.32 of enormous value and that places Martinez in the semifinals.
Recent U23 European champion, Francois Beoringyan’s pupil has not been intimidated by the stage. The Navarrese does not care what the Games and the Olympic Stadium are. He ducks his head and shoots off, with a second half of the series where his brilliant technique has led him to take the lead and win his series. Mission accomplished and the sensation of the fences this season in Spain is already in the semifinals.
