Félix Sánchez hizo honor a su apodo. El dominicano demostró que es un hombre de hierro capaz de desafiar al tiempo.

Ocho años después de darle a República Dominicana el primer oro olímpico en su historia, el eterno "Súper Sánchez" se impuso el lunes en los 400 metros con vallas en los Juegos de Londres con tiempo de 47.63 segundos.

El análisis: Culson y Puerto Rico tendrán que seguir esperando el oro

La opinión, "Félix Sánchez resurge de sus cenizas", por Lenka Rivera

A 24 días de cumplir 35 años, Sánchez se convirtió en el atleta de mayor edad que gana un oro olímpico en cualquier carrera de velocidad.

El estadounidense Michael Tinsley se llevó la medalla de plata con 47.91 y el puertorriqueño Javier Culson atrapó el bronce con 48.10.

Culson, segundo en los últimos dos mundiales, no pudo con la carga de conseguir el primer título de Puerto Rico en unos Juegos Olímpicos.
