An Australian woman has been injured in a goring in the final bull run of Spain’s San Fermin festival, while four other runners sustained cuts and bruises.
A regional health official, Javier Sesma, said the 23-year-old woman was gored in the thorax and was taken to hospital, along with the other four.
The Australian, whose condition was not immediately released, was struck by a massive Miura bull as she clung to wooden barriers yards outside the bull ring entrance in Pamplona.
Other runners got tossed by the bulls or fell as they ran.
Miuras are renowned as Spain’s largest and fastest fighting bulls, and today’s run was quick, taking 2 minutes, 16 seconds to cover 928 yards from stables just outside Pamplona’s medieval stone wall to the central bullring.
