The XXXV Outdoor Championship of the Canary Islands Absolute and Sub20 and the first Athletics Championship of the Canary Islands inclusive and adapted to the outdoors, three competitions attended by hundreds of athletes, put the finishing touch to the summer season and close the calendar of regional competitions until next October.
The tests, races, launches and jumps, were developed in three days (Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning). In general, there was a high level of marks, despite the fact that the strong prevailing wind made it difficult and invalidated some of them. Nor did the prevailing intense heat help the athletes’ efforts. Athletes from all the islands participated and it should be noted that for the first time in a Canarian Championship the indirect measurement system was used in several tests (triple, length, javelin), an advance that the Canarian Athletics Federation has recently implemented and that the judges of the CCJ are becoming familiar with. This system will greatly speed up the measurement and the development of the tests, reducing the measurement time. Present at the awards ceremony were Alberto Hernández, president of the FCA, as well as Jonay Medina González, from the Judges Committee, and Antonio José Buenaño Verdún, technical director of the FCA.
It is worth mentioning the celebration of the first Adapted and Inclusive Canarian Open Air Championship, which maintains the line that the Canarian Athletics Federation has carried out during the 2021/2022 season, including these two modalities in the Canarian League, with the Canarian Championship winter track. A total of 66 entries competed for this weekend’s event.
