Alberto González Spanish Triathlon Champion

Today the Sprint Triathlon Championship was held in Roquetas de Mar (Almería) where the triathlete Alberto González has won the victory and the national title

Among them, the name of Jairo Ruíz, the local idol who became the first Paralympic triathlete to compete in the Elite category.

The men's test did not have the wind that the women suffered, so when they left the swim a large group of 20 components was formed. As they were adding kilometers of cycling, the group was increasing to reach the almost 40 who got off together to leave their bicycles.

The race was to be decided on the stage on foot, with Jordi García being the head of this group from the start of the second transition. Just before passing again through the transition and when there were only 2'5 kilometers to finish the competition, the four outstanding triathletes, Jordi García, Alberto González, Genis Grau and David Castro saw how one of their components lost valuable meters. The rodense David Castro went down and lost contact with them so it seemed that the podium positions were closed.

In front, Alberto González made a change of pace in the last kilometer that gave him a dream victory in his first year as Elite and sub 23.

Behind, the Catalan Jordi García he secured the silver medal with David Castro third coming from behind and beating sprint Catalan Genis Grau.
