6.28 by Olympian Alberto Gines Lopez (19)


Thursday, 10 June

Alberto Gines Lopez, who has focused on Euro Youth Cups, finally had a great result when he won the Speed qualification with 6.28, setting a new PB.

As the Combined results are multiplied in Tokyo, it is very important to have a superb result in one or two events instead of having three good results. In other words, if the 19-year-old can advance to the Top-8 final he could be second in Speed giving him good chances for bronze overall.
