The men’s 200m brought another big step for Spain’s 200m European champion Bruno Hortelano. He finished second in his first race at the distance since returning to the sport following his car accident in 2016.
It was actually his first 200m since the Olympics that year and his time of 20.35 – behind South African Luxolo Adams in 20.34 – is the fourth fastest of his career, and his fastest time set outside of a major championships.
Hortelano will take great encouragement by that as he counts down to the defence of his crown in Berlin, as the German city co-hosts the first multi-sports European Championships with Glasgow.
