Natalia Rodríguez conquers the bronze in 1.500

The athlete from Tarragona achieves the first medal for Spain

Natalia Rodríguez won yesterday the bronze medal in 1.500 meters, the first medal of the Spanish selection in Daegu 2011 and the tenth one of the feminine Spanish athletics in the history of the World Championships. Rodríguez was overcome in the last meters by Jennifer Barringer Simpson, USA (4:05:40) and the British Hannah England (4:05:68).

This one is the fourth medal that the athlete from Tarragona conquers in a great event, after the silver medals in the World Championship of Doha 2010, the European of Turin 2009 and the bronze medal in the European of Barcelona, last summer. Natalia, who was dispossessed of the golden medal in the World Championship of Berlin 2009 said: "It seems that there was poetical justice".
