VIDEO | Triatlonistul spaniol Diego Mentrida, "cel mai frumos gest din istoria sportului": i-a cedat...


Moment uluitor de fair-play, care va intra in istoria sportului, petrecut pe 13 septembrie, in Spania, la triatlonul de la Santander: sportivul spaniol Diego Mentrida a sesizat ca britanicul James Teagle a gresit traseul chiar inainte de linia de sosire, l-a asteptat si i-a cedat, practic, locul al treilea si bronzul competitiei, a notat CNN.


Mentrida, 21 de ani, legitimat Ecoesport Alcobendas, Madrid, si-a asteptat adversarul si l-a lasat sa termina cursa inaintea lui.


Teagle, care o luase spre un steag rosu despre care credea ca marcheaza linia de sosire, i-a strans mana adversarului sau si abia apoi a trecut de finish.


"A fost in fata mea tot timpul. A meritat bronzul", a explicat Diego Mentriga, la final.


Filmarile scenei de o sportivitate rara au adunat milioane de vizualizari pe retelele de socializare.


"Vreale ale sportului intr-un singur gest", a scris portarul spaniol al Liverpool, Adrian, pe Twitter. Si fostul portar Iker Casillas l-a laudat si pe Mentrida.


"Iubesc, iubesc aceasta poveste", a spus actorul Will Smith. intr-un videoclip pe contul sau de Instagram.

"Asta e ceva ce parintii mei si clubul din care fac parte m-au invatat de cand eram copil. Din punctul meu de vedere, e ceva ce ar trebui sa fie normal. Nu a observat semnele sau acestea erau puse gresit", a declarat sportivul devenit faimos pentru gestul sau.

Evenimentul de la Santander a avut loc pe 13 septembrie, insa imaginile au fost facute publice abia acum.


Diego Mentrida a primit un loc 3 onorific din partea organizatorilor si un premiu de 300 de euro, la fel ca Teagle, potrivit jurnalistilor de la El Mundo.


Gestul lui Mentrida a fost considerat de mai multi sportivi ca fiind "cel mai frumos din istoria sportului", a informat siMirror.


Vazand ce greseala a facut, m-am oprit. Cand am vazut ca a gresit drumul, pur si simplu m-am oprit. James a meritat medalia. Cred ca nu a vazut semnele si de aceea s-a intamplat asta. Daca s-a repeta situatia, cu siguranta as face la fel.

Diego Mentrida:

James Teagle, rivalul lui Mentrida, a tras concluzia: "E un gest de o mare sportivitate, intr-un moment in care fair-lay-ul aproape ca a disparut".


Cei doi triatlonisti vor concura impreuna inca o data, la triatlonul Bilbao, tot in nordul Spaniei, pe 26 septembrie. Povestea merge mai departe!


Triatlonul este un sport compus din inot, ciclism si alergare.
