MADRID, 3 (ATB NOTICIAS) El polaco Robert Korzeniowski, tetracampeón olímpico, confía en que su pupilo Francisco Javier 'Paquillo' Fernández se cuelgue una medalla en los próximos Juegos Olímpicos de Pekín y confía en que la misma preparación que ya le permitió obtener la plata en el Mundial de Osaka (Japón) dé sus frutos."Estamos seremos en nuestra confianza de lo que podemos lograr. Intentará ganar el oro olímpico, pero somos realistas y sabemos que no es el único aspirante. Sin embargo confiamos en que el 16 de agosto estará al cien por cien preparado", subrayó en una entrevista a la Asociación Internacional de Atletismo.
