José Manuel Cortes returns to be thoroughbred in the World Master
This Spanish athlete, coming from Lepe, reached the age of 35 with many more successes than he would have dreamed when, as a child, he started in athletics in his native province. One of his great exploits makes reference to the 800 meters of the Huelva 2004 Ibero-American Championship, which he remembers with special affection
His spirit of never staying still and always moving forward is what makes him achieve so many successes. That is why when he learned that Málaga hosted the Veterans World Championship, he did not think about it and got into the dynamics. His competitive philosophy asked him to fly over his retreat and dream about the tartan once again.
And, precisely today at 20.55 hours participates in the series of 1500 meters of the category of over 35 years, where it will seek the classification for the final to be held on Sunday at 11.57 hours.
Along with Cortés there will be important runners like Pablo Muñoz, current Indoor European champion or Álvaro Fernández Cerezo from Malaga, who was international. Juan Antonio Gil Martínez, current indoor world champion, is significant down.
