  • Description

    WITH A SWEEP OF THE HAND "EL VITI" ACKNOWLEDGED THE PLAUDITS OF THE CROWD AND RETURNED TO HIS SIMPLE ROOM AFTER ONE OF THE BEST BULLFIGHTS OF THE SEASON SEEN AT TALAVERA, SPAIN, YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY).

    SANTIAGO MARTIN SANCHEZ, 28-YEAR-OLD "EL VITI" IS KNOWN POPULARLY AS THE "UNSMILING ONE". HE IS ENTHUSIASTICALLY FOLLOWED BY THE SUPPORTERS OF THE SPORT WHO ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AS ONE OF THE CLASSIC MASTERS. THIS IS HIS 4TH YEAR OF TOP-RANK COMPETITION, BUT HE HAS BEEN WOUNDED SIX TIMES. IN THIS FIGHT NO SUCH DANGER EXISTED, SINCE HE SUPERBLY CONTROLLED THE FAST, DANGEROUS BLACK BULL, SOON TAMING IT TO A BEWILDERED STATIONARY ANIMAL.

    AFTER THE BULL HAD BEEN KILLED WITH A SWORD THRUST BETWEEN THE SHOULDER BLADES, THE CROWD STOOD AND APPLAUDED WILDLY. TO THEIR DELIGHT HE WAS AWARDED THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE ACCOLADE: TWO EARS AND THE TAIL.
