A month for the debut of Javier Gómez Noya in the Ironman of Cairns

Today just one month before Javier Gómez Noya debuts at Ironman distance, it will be in the Australian city of Cairns in the Asian and Pacific Championship.

Javier Gómez Noya is the king of the olympic distance, with his 5 ITU world titles, is the triathlete with more world championships won and the most medals sum, a total of 10.

In the last 11 years, with the exception of 2016, Noya has always been on the ITU world podium, achieving 5 gold, 4 silver and 1 bronze. He debuted in the middle distance in 2013 winning the ITU European Championship in the Half Challenge Barcelona and in 2014 he made the jump to the IM 70.3 circuit, where he is the current world champion, repeating the triumph achieved in 2014. It was also bronze in 2015.

In this season Javi has competed and won the Wanaka Challenge in New Zealand and the Polar Cannes International Triathlon, in addition to running the Madrid half marathon. On May 20, Noya will play the IM 70.3 of Barcelona, which will be a great test for the debut in Cairns Ironman.

In the face of the Australian event, some of the pre-registered triathletes are already known, being the main rival of Noya the New Zealander Terenzzo Bozzone, the only one of all the triathletes who will participate in Cairns who knows what it is to cross the finish line of an 70.3 ahead of Javi, was last year in the 70.3 of Barhein, Bozzone was 2º and Noya 3º. He is also registered Tim O'Donnell third in Kona 2015 and Luke McKencie 2º in Kona 2013. Finally, highlight Cameron Wurf, also appears as pre-registered, although this would be his third IM of the season after South Africa where 4 was and after Lanzarote where he is registered, so his presence in Cairns is not yet secure.
