The appointment promised and met expectations. The Spanish Cup held yesterday at the La Tejerona sports center in Gijón was a sporting and organizational success throughout the six hours of competition.
On the tatami, Asturias achieved a gold, a silver and five bronzes. Melania Souto (-70) kilos climbed to the top of the podium. The silver went to Noa Fernández (-78) kilos, and the bronzes to Hugo González (-60) kilos, Diego Menéndez and Nel Rodrigo (+100) kilos, Elisa Fernández (-63) kilos, and Daniela Sevillano (-70) .
If the development of the appointment was brilliant, it did not detract from it. Rather the opposite. The competition was valued with the highest score, and his future is guaranteed. As a delegate of the Spanish Federation, its technical director, Serafín Aragüete, attended Gijón. The arbitration level was also exceptional, with the National Commissioner being the three-time Olympian Manel Cortés. The public filled the installation, and all the combats could be followed live through the retransmission on the YouTube Channel of the Asturian Federation of Judo and Associated Sports (FAJYDA).
The next appointment of the Asturian judo will be the absolute sector next weekend in La Coruña.
