On Saturday, the Olympic Distance European Championship will be held in Eilat (Israel); early date motivated by the pre-Olympic calendar, in a place where the water and ambient temperatures are high in April. There have already been several international triathlons, not only at the European level but even scoring for the World Cup in 2007.
Javier comes in good shape, but not the maximum he hopes to achieve in August. He will go out and give everything, although without having made a set-up since he has not lowered the training load the previous days: "I hope to do well because I have done quality walking sessions. But there are people who are full of form since they fight for the Olympic places and in this race points for London are given.
The Russians will be ahead of you, also the French and of course the other Spaniards. And another favorite is the Portuguese Silva, winner here at 2011 of the European Sub23. The fact that the Brownlee or the Sydney World Series winner is not the German Justus does not mean that he has the title on a plate. "
A title that Javier won in 2007 (Denmark) and 2009 (Holland), but could not achieve at home in 2011 when it was the main goal of the season: "I'm not going to Israel to get that thorn out. Pontevedra was a stick that as an athlete I had to assume, you can not always win. Instead now it's a preparation race for London. If I win, good; and if I do not, nothing will happen. This year everything is subject to the Olympic Games and reaching the top in April is not convenient ".
The large Spanish delegation, with triathletes of both genders in both Elite and Junior, arrived there on Wednesday, the Elite Men's race being scheduled on Saturday at the 2PM Spanish time, one more there
