Ivan Raña and Josemi Pérez seek their tickets for the London Games in Madrid

The triathlete from Cuenca must finish the test that takes place in the Casa de Campo starting at 14.00:XNUMX p.m. ahead of the Galician Iván Raña. If he succeeds, he will go to the Olympic Games representing Spain together with Javier Gómez Noya and Mario Mola.

It is the moment of truth and Madrid will dictate sentence. A place for the triathlon team that will represent Spain at the London Olympics is at stake. There are two applicants. On the one hand, the veteran Iván Raña, world champion in Cancún in 2002, and on the other hand, José Miguel Pérez, a triathlete from Cuenca.

Madrid, always difficult

The grand final will be played at the Casa de Campo in Madrid. The test will consist of a 1.500-meter swim, a 40-kilometre bike ride and a 10-kilometer run and, although the two great dominators of the specialty, the Spanish Javier Gómez Noya and the English Alistair Brownlee, they will not be, but the 'other' Brownlee will compete, Jonathan, who has just won two weeks ago in San Diego (USA) a test in which Mario Mola from the Balearic Islands -the main Spanish trick in Madrid- was fourth.

Even so, the great battle will be elucidated by Pérez and Raña, who will have to secure the third Spanish place in Madrid, at the same time that they will fight each other for a place in the team that competes in the London Games. Josemi was never good at Madrid, but supported by many people from Cuenca, he will try to achieve a historic classification.
