Like women, this 2017 has left us Spanish sportsmen very deserving of being the best of the year. Sport is an activity that men have mostly practiced, and although that is fortunately changing, there are achievements that for now they have only achieved.
We are going to highlight three male athletes who have made history this year, would you say any?
In Spain we have the Moto GP World Champion for the fourth time in five years. Marc’s record is impressive, being the youngest champion in history to win four titles of the queen category (2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017). We must also add the world 125cc (2010) and Moto2 (2012), which makes it the second most successful Spanish after Angel Nieto.
Although it has been an irregular season for Marc, it has been proposed that 2018 be much better than this year. We are looking forward to seeing you!
There are sports that are less commercial, but that the athletes who manage to raise a prize are the result of the effort. Mario Mola has been proclaimed world triathlon champion for the second time in a row. They say that those who overcome a triathlon are made of steel and Mario has corroborated it by getting 4728 points, almost 400 points more than his second rival.
The truth is that this year he achieved third place in the Rotterdam Grand Final, after four victories in the previous eight dates, and accumulated the necessary points to position himself at the top of the classification.
Of course, Rafa Nadal could not miss in this top 3. The Mallorcan again achieved the number one in the world, after a wonderful season. He won the victory in Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Madrid and Paris, where he kissed the Roland Garros Cup for the tenth time.
