Track Beauty of the Week: Estela García Villalta

Estela García is this week’s track beauty!

The young Spaniard is a fast-rising sprinting talent in her home nation. Still only 23-years old, García has had considerable international experience. In 2008, she competed at the World Junior Championships in Bydgoszcz, clocking 24.67s in the heats of the 200m dash and 12.03s in the century dash.

A year later after her debut on the world stage, García lowered her 200m dash personal best to 23.87s.  The versatile Spanish sprinter has personal bests of 11.75s (2010) and 56.86s (2011) in the 100m and 200m, respectively.

At the 2010 Ibero-American Championships, Garcia narrowly missed a finals slot in the 200m dash. She made amends at the 2011 European U-23 Championships in Ostrava, as she tied her 200m personal best in the semifinals.

Her most memorable international moment to date came during the European Championships in Barcelona. García, together with Ana Torrijos, Digna Luz Murillo, and Amparo María Cotán, set a new Spanish national record in the 4x100m relay final.
