The next 18 and 20 of August will compete for the Olympic Triathlon, where 6 Spanish will participate in the test
In the following article we are going to review how the best competitions have been Mario Mola , Fernando Alarza, Vicente Hernández, Miriam Casillas, Ainhoa Murua y Carolina Routier during his qualification for the Olympic Games.
Mario is the current number one in the world ranking and also was the Olympic classification. Like Alarza, he arrives at the best moment of his sports career.
In this 2016 has won in all competitions that have run, except the WTS Cape Town and has virtually the world title insured. In his last competition in Hamburg a few weeks ago he gave an image of great superiority, getting off at the head of the bike and achieving the best partial on foot.
Fernando was the third Spanish in the Olympic ranking with an 4ª square. Last year in London he achieved his first podium in WTS, in this 2016 he has obtained his best results, he equaled that second position in the WTS of Costa Dorada and also achieved his first victory in WTS in Cape Town, being the only triathlete that has managed to win this year in a competition where Mario Mola has raced. Fernando arrives at Rio in the 2ª position in the world.
The Canarian triathlete signed a magnificent 13 position in the Olympic ranking, initially had no place for Rio since it was the Spanish 4º in the ranking ... but due to the absence of Javier Gómez Noya, Vicente was selected for the Olympic Games.
As he said, it was a bittersweet feeling, since no one likes to enter because of a partner's injury. The numbers of "Chente" in this Olympic cycle are really good, it has been 6 times top10 in WTS, its best result was last year in the WTS of Costa Dorada, where it was 4º. He has also achieved 2 podiums in the World Cups and the bronze medal in the European 2014.
The women had to fight until the last moment to get all three classified while the men had already obtained the 2015 classification.
Ainhoa was the best Spanish in the Olympic ranking in the 32 position. He obtained the majority in WTS, especially in Cape Town where he was 11ª this year and 12ª last year. He was also top15 in other 3 WTS and bronze medal in the European 2015.
Carolina has been the second Spanish in the Olympic ranking in the 44ª position. Her best performances have been in both WTS and World Cups, highlighting that she is the only Spaniard in the Olympic cycle who has obtained two top10 in WTS and also her 4 position last year in Edmonton is the best result of a Spanish in a world series.
The third Spanish in the Olympic ranking was Miriam Casillas, in the 46ª position. Extremadura, on the other hand, has obtained its best results in World Cups, where 5 got top10, all of them in the second qualifying period, between October of 2015 and May of 2016. Note that it was the only Spanish to get a podium in World Cups, thanks to its third position in Alanya last year.
