José Carlo Hernández, thirteenth in Portugal

The Olympic athlete from Lanzarote finished the Half-Marathon of Lisbon (Portugal) in 13th place, which has had a participation of 37000 athletes. José Carlos Hernández was meant to be the European of this race and bet his personal record (65:07), but after enduring some adverse conditions in the last few kilometers of the race he had to accept the 13th place with a time of 1:05:07. “It’s a shame, because I trained really hard for this race and I couldn’t achieve a good mark”, admits Hernández. Lots of encouragement and we continue to work hard! Let’s go!

Impressions of José Carlos Hernández

“I am not happy, because I didn’t reach the time I wanted (65:07). It was a shame, because I trained really hard for this race and I couldn’t reach a good mark.”

“We had to cope with a lot of wind during the last 10 kilometers. In the first eight I went for a time of approximately 62:15 and first in the European classification (way ahead were the guys from Kenia and Ethiopia), but I remained alone.”

“In this moment, the fight with the wind left me empty and my persecutors got closer every time. It was a hunt, because they gave me a race and during the last two kilometers a German and a Portuguese escaped me.”
