Three records, six kings

There are biladist theories that advocate "the enemy or water", but history shows that rivalry is not confronted with elegance.

One of the great things of sport is the ability to overcome the species, that each record, however stratospheric it may seem, can always be overcome, it takes more or less time to conquer it. Last Sunday he witnessed it, although due to those whims or coincidences that the competition sometimes also offers us, three records were concentrated on the same date, three legendary brands equaled by three other no less mythical protagonists. In order of the clock, first it was Lewis Hamilton, who reached at the Eifel GP at Nurburgring, Michael Schumacher's 91 victories in Formula 1. At the end of the season an even greater achievement looms: the seven Kaiser world titles . A little later, Rafa Nadal added his 13th Roland Garros, a cosmic record in itself, and tied Roger Federer's 20 Grand Slams at the top of the ladder. The third, already in the early European morning, arrived from Orlando, with the achievement of the 17th ring of the NBA by the Los Angeles Lakers, the same ones that their eternal rivals, the Boston Celtics, show.

Three records in one fell swoop, six kings in the sports universe. Some feats that were accompanied by moving details, such as that Schumacher helmet that his son Mick gave Hamilton on the podium, or the congratulatory words that Federer dedicated to his rival, and nevertheless friend, Nadal. There are bilardist theories that advocate "the enemy or water", but history shows that rivalry is not faced with elegance. Even Frazier and Ali, or Bartali and Coppi, ended up being friends. These three achievements also opened discussions among fans, questions such as whether Nadal is really at the height of Federer, which of course he is, or if LeBron James already competes in Michael Jordan's sky, that history and distance they will say it. Debates from another galaxy.
