The Mexican Lopez takes care of his health and is able to reach the 800m . goes to the end of

eugene, ore ( Associated Press) – Organizers of the World Athletics Championships are encouraging athletes to wear masks indoors. However, there is no compulsion to do so.

So the majority expose their faces to speak to journalists in the mixed zone – who are forced to wear masks when they are indoors.

This is not the case with Tonatiú López. The Mexican says he wants to protect his fellow delegation members and their families who accompany him to watch the contagion compete in Eugene from the northwestern city of Hermosillo.

“It’s not convenient to expose or expose yourself to the cases that are rising right now… In the end, everyone has their own preferences,” he said.

He also wants to protect himself. After all, he now has another appointment to compete in the 800m semi-finals.

Lopez put herself in this example at the world championships for the first time in her career, winning her elimination round on Wednesday with the second-fastest time, both in that race and in others.

López stopped the clock in 1 minute, 44.67 seconds, only behind Canadian Marco Erop, who clocked 1:44.56 and competed in the same race.

“This is the first part of what I want to achieve,” Lopez said. “I already knew, I already knew it was going to be a quick semi-final, because the opponents played us. Arrot’s signature is always to run fast, so we knew it was going to be a tough semi-final. But the important thing is that we got it out.

At the Tokyo Olympics, Lopez had already made it to the semi-finals. He was knocked out of the final for only three hundredths of a second.

But in his previous World Cup experience, in London 2017, he was eliminated in the first round. A year later, a gold medal came at the Central American and Caribbean Games in Barranquilla.

“We matched our maximum progress in the Olympic Games”, he highlighted. “In 2017, still at that age, five years ago, I was in the playoffs. I am happy with the work I did today, more than anything considering the time it took.”

Qualifying in such good weather is advantage or pressure?

“The truth is, if they had given me a choice, I would have chosen to run slower, because I would have had less wear and tear, but that’s what we had to do, and we had to work for it”.
