Spain is sending their biggest ever team of 93 athletes to the Munich 2022 European Athletics Championships from 15-21 August, part of the wider multi-sport European Championships from 11-21 August.

The 93-strong team features their two individual champions from Berlin 2018 with Alvaro Martin and Maria Perez looking to defend their titles in the men’s and women’s 20km race walk respectively.

The team also includes their two medal winners from the recent World Athletics Championships in Oregon. Asier Martinez will be looking to improve on his bronze medal in the 110m hurdles and Mohamed Katir will be looking for his second major medal of the season.

Other title contenders include world indoor champion Mariano Garcia in the 800m, world 1500m fourth-placer Mario Garcia and Olympic fifth-placer and national record-holder Ayad Lamdassem in the marathon.

Spain has won 75 medals in European Athletics Championships history and they enjoyed their best ever campaign to date when Munich staged the 2002 edition of the championships, winning six gold medals and 15 medals in total.
