These words capture the magnitude of his achievement and the emotion that accompanied him at every step of his progress. As he immersed himself in the rehabilitation process, he discovered a newfound strength within himself, a strength that propelled him beyond what he ever believed possible.

Recently, Miguel Ángel has brought that same determination and strength to the playing field, pushing the boundaries of body and mind. In Guadalajara, he showcased his prowess on the track by surpassing his own records in the 800 meters with an impressive time of 2:16, the 200 meters in 0:32, and the 5000 meters in 15:25, marking significant progress from the previous year.

But his true test came in the Movistar half marathon in Madrid. Despite encountering a flat tire at kilometer 4 of the race, Miguel Ángel didn't stop.

With courage and determination, he crossed the finish line in a remarkable time of 1:08:40 minutes, securing a second place in the competition. Congratulations from the entire team!
