BarcelonaThe athletic walk. Always the march. So forgotten, so misunderstood. The sport that was born within those competitions of other centuries to see who walked the most. And after so much walking, he ended up putting in another gear. Walking, a sport that so many people do not understand, unable to feel the pain in their legs after so many kilometers at a high pace maintaining coordination so that at all times there is one foot that touches the ground and with the fear of being disqualified if to go too fast the feet fly. A hard sport where many things go through your head, during the hours you suffer. But sometimes you suffer more to get to the test than once the starting shot has been fired. The Catalans Raquel González and Mar Juárez have shown this at the European Championships, where they had to face different illnesses in order to shine.
