Bruno HORTELANO - Spain - European 200 metres sprint champion in 2016.

Bruno Hortelano on his lap of honour with the Spanish flag thinking his has won

the silver medal in the men's 200 metres. However, he was awarded the gold medal

following the disqualification of 100 metres champion Churandy Martina who crossed

the finish line first, only to be told he had 'cut the corner' by running in the  lane inside

his own (Martina was in lane 8). Although the  200m times were modest Bruno had set

a Spanish record of  20.39 in his semifinal.

 

He then improved that time to 20.18 in London on the 22nd July at the Olympic Stadium.
