I know how much you wanted this medal and how hard you worked to achieve this historic moment, that makes all the Portuguese people vibrate with pride and emotion. What a jump, Pedro!!!

Seeing you wrapped in the Portuguese flag, with a broad smile, savoring this Olympic champion title makes all Benfiquistas proud.

Best world mark of the year, national record and second-best mark ever in Olympic Games. Remarkable! Congratulations, Pedro Pablo Pichardo! Your ambition is an example to everyone at Sport Lisboa e Benfica. A leap that remains forever and underlines the excellence of the Club's Olympic Project, a path in which we increasingly believe.

In this hour of celebration and happiness for all of us, I want to leave you a special thank you on behalf of all Benfiquistas. It is an immense honor to have you in our family. Together, I am sure, we will jump in search of new glories.

The Presidente of Sport Lisboa e Benfica
