This is the first inclusion in a test of these characteristics. The runner of Gata de Gorgos was satisfied with the final result, however, he commented that “Muscle problems have not allowed me to be at 100%, and I am sure that if I had been in optimal conditions I would have managed to climb more positions. You have to keep in mind that I had set the challenge of getting a mark less than seven hours at best. ”
From Marina El Portet, Héctor Villar has congratulated the athlete and considers that "We are going to have to be very aware of this young man because it is clear that his projection of the future will be quite sound."
