The Prize

Take home this red Team España sweatshirt worn by Spanish middle distance runner Fermín Cacho Ruiz for the Atlanta 1996 Summer Olympics. 

Olympic champion of the 1500-meter flat race in Barcelona 1992, Cacho once more returned to the top in 1996 at the Atlanta Olympic Games, winning the silver medal.

Despite being the reigning champion, Cacho was not considered a favorite to win the race, which was tipped to be a head-to-head between Morceli and Hicham El Guerrouj, who had taken the top two places in the previous world championships. At the start of the final lap, Morceli was ahead of El Guerrouj, when the Moroccan tripped and fell. Cacho had to go around him to avoid tripping but still managed to reach the finish line just 5 meters behind Morceli, placing second.

The auction winner will also receive the Reebok shoes worn by Fermín Cacho for his last professional race.

The Cause

The Real Madrid Foundation is the instrument by which Real Madrid is present in society and develops its social and cultural awareness programmes.

Its main objective is to promote, both in Spain as well as abroad, the values inherent in sport, and the latter’s role as an educational tool capable of contributing to the comprehensive development of the personality of those who practice it. In addition, as a means of social integration of those who find themselves suffering from any form of marginalisation, as well as to promote and disseminate all the cultural aspects linked to sport.

The Real Madrid Foundation exists thanks to the collaboration of the different public authorities, thanks to the generous support it receives from important national and international companies through patronage and sponsorship agreements and, in particular, thanks to the individual donations made by thousands of Madrid’s fans, who wish to express their support and strengthen their bond with Real Madrid.

The Foundation is audited annually and the results are presented to the Board of Trustees, to the Governing Authority for Foundations of the Ministry of Education and Sport, and are subsequently published in the club’s annual report and in the Foundation’s magazine.

There is the opportunity to purchase a display case for this product.
