Javier Gómez Noya, Emilio Aguayo PROS and Albert Moreno Spaniards qualified for the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in South Africa

It will be the fourth participation of the Galician defending title and the third of Catalan while the Valencian debut in a world of IM 70.3

The next 1 and 2 September will be held a new edition of the Ironman World Championship 70.3 in Nelson Mandela Bay in South Africa and will be the first to be played on African soil. All the triathletes classified have already been announced and they have confirmed their participation as can be seen on the Ironman website.

In the male category there will be two Spanish representatives, Javier Gómez Noya, whoever counts his participations for podiums (2 gold and 1 bronze) and that will play the World Cup for the fourth time in his sports career.

Noya has already stated that his Goal number one this year is to contest the Ironman World Cup in Hawaii, but before, as can be confirmed in the list of classifieds for the Ironman world championship 70.3 will contest the South African event where, in case of being able to repeat victory, it would be his third world title in the middle distance, being the first triathlete to achieve it ... just as it was the first (and only) with five ITU titles.

Another Spanish representative will be Emilo Aguayo, whoever debuts in a world specialty and you will have the opportunity to measure yourself with the best in the world in the distance. Emilio started his way to the World Championship with a great second place in the Ironman 70.3 of Lanzarote last year, later he also scored points in the 70.3 of Dubai and Texas and sealed his qualification with a top6 in the European Championship of Elsinore.

Both Javi and Emilio already coincided 5 years ago on the podium of the Aquatlon Spanish cto, where they were another and silver.

As far as women's competition is concerned, Judith Corachán had enough points to qualify and had his place insured for the second year in a row, but finally resigned to compete this season in the IM 70.3 world where so far is the only Spanish PRO that has done so.
