The Spanish Embassy in Bucharest, together with the Spanish Press Association EFE and the Bucharest Municipality Museum, present the public with a new photography exhibition “The Heroes of Spanish Sport”, which can be seen from October 16th to November 16th 2018, on the fences of the Suțu Palace in the Capital.
The exhibition showcases representative figures of the Golden Century of Spanish sport, a group of young champions who placed Spain on the heights of world class sport.
This collection of photographs has already been exhibited in other cities such as New York, Belgrade, Madrid or Alicante and includes 25 unique images of famous sport players such as Rafael Nadal, (17 times Grand Slam winner), Iker Casillas, Miguel Induráin, Joaquín Blume, Ona Carbonell, Fernando Alonso, Carolina Marín, Pau Gasol, Javier Gómez Noya, Marc Márquez, Lidia Valentín or Mireia Belmonte. The images are part of the graphic archive of EFE Agency, the most important Spanish press agency and the fourth in the world.
The passersby are invited to embark on a journey alongside the large family of Spanish sport, by going through a whole series of disciplines where Spanish sport players have won memorable victories, such as the title of World Champions at the football championship in South Africa, in 2010. Spain is also proudly represented in yacht competitions, artistic skating, badminton or athletics. Motorcycling is represented too, through Marc Márquez, as well as basketball (Pau Gasol), handball or rhythmic gymnastics.
This exhibition is all about a selection of spectacular images that highlight the evolution of Spanish sport during the past years and showcases the performances of these champions, their spirit of sacrifice, their passion, talent and will of self-improvement.
