Eduardo Herrera gave his best, but lost in the semifinals at the “María del Rosario Espinoza” Auditorium in Culiacán, against Pedro Iván Quintal, from Veracruz.
The verdict was unanimous, and Herrera was the only Yucatecan who reached the podium in this discipline, which had eight elements in the delegation, including several serious contenders even for the gold medal, such as Guillermo Keb and Daniel Garrido, eliminated.
At yesterday’s cut, on a day of rest and travel between venues, Yucatan remains in seventh place in the Conade Nationals medal table with 42 gold, 54 silver and 69 bronze medals.
