Athletics Reflects

Maintaining good health at the grassroots level, follows ballasting sociologically in its aspect of pure competition. The dismal results in the Daegu world rekindle debate about the problems that crosses this sport. That quote from Daegu has brought the worst outcomes of a selection of Athletics in 13 World Cup contested to date, that so little loot Natalia Rodriguez bronze in the 1,500 m has arrived in the Spanish splendour sporting times, in times of aid and scholarships and major infrastructures, poses so many unknowns about why as itch generates the how.

It is not what we expected. Spanish Athletics requires a structural change, proclaimed Monday Albert Soler, Secretary of State for sport. At the same time, the organisation of the 10 Km from Valencia relied in reaching the 6,000 participants on January 8. It is the ironic dichotomy of a few times where more seduces the Athletics as a means to stay in shape (a Once the thirty frisa and directs life) than pure competition. Of athletics, it seems, is a crisis of the times. A slump of a sociological nature.

Scandals and suspicions do not help. The auction, the absence of the world of television racks in open. Television rights and settings do not make good friends. And this is how Internet and enterprises, which if you’re not it seems that you do not exist, the view Luis Miguel Martin Berlanas, long-distance, record holder in the 3,000 meters obstacles and director of the timbre of the corridor. Math and offer the Lions Manolo Martinez, exlanzador weight and Spanish has argued on Monday for the realism that athletics is not like mathematics: should not dramatize, because expectations, with logic in hand and given the enormous competitiveness, could not be better. The result reflects the current situation of our Athletics. And the results in London 2012 will not be very different. Running is more universal and economical sport that exists, It is the base of others a lot, but today youth has disconnected from the culture of effort: running tires and the leisure offer is wide. Earlier, the games were more physical and on the street. They are now mobile phones, videogames quarry is reduced. And I firmly believe that the quantity just necessarily leaving quality, adds Berlanas. The model and the minimum with the (considerate) descalabro Daegu, some voices rekindle the discussion of reduce the calls. Luis Miguel Martin Berlanas is not in agreement: an athlete who achieves the minimum should go. It is experience. And no insurance who will fight for medals in the future. Others, with Albert Soler yesterday at the front, put on the table the exhaustion of a model that must be changed after the London Games. Another thing is that some athletes to compete better and others not so well, considered the steering.
