Ceuta José Manuel Ortega finishes in fourth position repeating the one obtained last year.
The seventh edition of the Lisbon test will go down in history due to the absolute dominance of the Portuguese triathletes. José Estrangeiro is imposed on his compatriots Vasco Pessoa and the favorite, Pedro Gomes.
In the female category the script is repeated but with protagonists from the United Kingdom. The British Alisson Rowat wins ahead of the Irish Aoife Lynch and the also British Natalie Barnard.
The victory of José Estrangeiro consolidates him as the best Portuguese long distance triathlete. The supremacy in the last years of Pedro Gomés was truncated in the test of Monte Gordo held in March. Despite the triumph at the ICAN in Marbella, Pedro Gomes has once again been overtaken by the one who seems destined to be the protagonist in the middle distance of his country.
The surprise of the day came from the hand of Vasco Pessoa, a regular of the ITU and ETU circuit that points very high with the performance achieved in the Campo de las Naciones in the Portuguese capital. The best Spanish has been José Manuel Ortega who repeats the 4º position obtained in the 2011.
The figures of a great event.
More than half a thousand triathletes from 20 countries took part in the most important test of the Portuguese calendar. The Lisbon international triathlon has a budget of 150.000 € and has a team of 120 people who join the support of the Portuguese Federation, police, firemen and even 50 masseurs at the goal. With these figures the participants have returned to enjoy one of the best tests that can be played in the peninsula.
