Spanish swimmer takes minute silence before final race

 

Swimmer Holds Moment Of Silence In Final Race For Barcelona Attack Victims

Spanish swimmer Fernando Alvarez was denied a minute of silence to honor the 15 victims of the terrorist attacks in Barcelona so he decided to take his minute of silence during the final championship race.

"I went to the director of the competition… But they told me that it was not possible [to have minute’s silence] because not a minute could be wasted.

It’s something that has affected us all, but maybe because of the distance and because I have family there… I really think it would have been a good thing to do.

So I started a minute later." - Fernando Alvarez

 

 Bravo Fernando Álvarez!
