Hello everyone,

I want to translate the following sentences into English :

1) El FC Barcelona va el primero destacado en La liga.
2) El corredor llegó a la meta el primero destacado con 10 segundos de ventaja sobre el segundo.

My attempts :

1) FC Barcelona is holding a distant first position in La liga.
2) The runner crossed/ got to the finish line in a distant/ comfortable first position with 10 second advantage over the second runner.

Thank you

    I'm pretty sure you don't want the word 'distant' (lejano como un país lejano).

    In relatively informal language you could say:
    FC Barcelona is way out on top of the League.
    The runner crossed the finish line way out in front with a 10 second advantage....

    More formally:
    FC Barcelona sits well out in front at the top of the League.
    The runner crossed the finish line well in front with a 10 second advantage....
