Sandra Corcuera seven-time Retrorunning World Champion
A few days ago we woke up to a report that Cristina Cubero Alcalde (@criscuberoalcalde) did in the Mundo Deportivo supplement about our magnificent athlete Sandra Corcuera.
She is the seven-time Retrorunning World Champion, she has achieved two of the golds in 2018 in Bologna in 10,000m and 5,000m, being silver in the 3,000m. This 1.62m tall Barcelonan has hundreds of races, podiums and trophies behind her, although as she herself admits she started in this discipline by mistake. After participating in disciplines such as cross country, route, marathon, ultra-fondo, trail or triathlon, she signed up for a race advertised as “Retrorunning” thinking that the name would be a mere marketing strategy. She did not give any more importance to that fact until the day of the test arrived and they told her that she had to run backwards. She had a hard time that day, but she began to investigate and discovered that it was a modality with the International Federation since 2005.
As she is passionate about sports and there is no challenge that can resist her, she began to prepare her first World Cup… and so far, with a total of seven in her possession. And we are convinced that the thing will not stop there.
With his already famous “Al revés mola más” (#alrevesmolamas) he is one of the main figures and promoters of this modality worldwide, and at Wiemspro we are more than proud to be part of his sponsors. A list not too long as she indicates due to the general public’s ignorance about this sport, but she has more and more followers and little by little she is taking on the relevance she deserves.
Her dream is to retro running to become an Olympic Sport, something that was tried but not achieved in London 2012. A campaign was also carried out to try to include it as an exhibition in the Tokyo 2020 Games, but it could not be. We hope it can be in Paris in 2024.
From here we send our best wishes to this tireless Wiemspro athlete, for her next competitions where we are sure she will return with more titles in her pockets.
Because AL REVÉS MOLA MÁS.
