Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain

The final bull run of the 2017 San Fermin festival 2017 in Pamplona left 13 people injured Friday —the highest number this year— but no gorings despite being the fastest dash of all eight held in the northern Spanish city.

Medical officials said a 30 year-old visitor from the United States was the most seriously injured in Friday’s eights and last run.

He was struck — but not gored— by the horn of a bull as the pack swept through a group of runners in the final section of the run, close to the bullring entrance.

Another American national, two French, one Italian and seven Spaniards were also being treated at the Navarra Hospital for head, back and other injuries, the regional government said in a statement. Doctors were still evaluating their condition.

Most people are hurt in falls or by being trampled on by bulls, but 15 people have been fatally gored at the festival since record-keeping began in 1924.

This year four Americans and three Spaniards were gored during the festival. All but a 22 year-old Californian man who is recovering from an arm injury have been discharged from hospital, the Navarra government reported.

On Friday, the bulls from Seville’s renowned Miura cattle ranch and steers leading them completed the 930-yard (850-meter) course in two minutes, 10 seconds, the fastest speed in this year’s festival. (AP)
