Diego Velazquez, TRI3 Long Distance World Champion, today confirmed his presence in the first edition of CHALLENGE VITORIA "I am delighted to return to Vitoria, for me it is a safe bet, a triathlon that must be done"
Diego Velázquez is presented today as a clear image and example of personal growth that he has demonstrated after competing in several Ironman since he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis more than fifteen years ago.
After having been able to count on his presence in Vitoria the past 2009 during the Spanish Triathlon Championship distance C (4-120-30) and in the 2012 in the LD Triathlon World Championship, Diego returns to bet on the city of Vitoria-Gasteiz, proving to be a triathlete that transmits values that go far beyond money and the media repercussion, a really admirable athlete who has known how to fight in an epic way showing that for him, there are no barriers.
"Sport is my life, a part without which I could not live. Practicing triathlon has helped me to know myself better and has given me thousands of new sensations, as well as improving my quality of life enormously. Thanks to him I have managed to adapt this disease. At first I was discouraged from doing sports and working, that day I said that one day I would do the Ironman of Lanzarote. After three years I managed to finish my first 5-20-2.5 sprint duathlon and in 2004 I was at the start of the IM Lanzarote and a few years later in the Triathlon World Championship, where I proclaimed myself World Champion in TRI3 and achieved a Top20 in Age Groups. I have fought and shown that willing is power, and that the mind often goes beyond physical barriers "
"If you want you can! And if you like triathlon, Challenge Vitoria is a test that you cannot miss, not only because of its spectacular landscapes but also because of the atmosphere that exists in the capital of Alava "
A luxury to be able to count on Challenge Vitoria with a triathlete the size of Diego Velazquez a paratriathlete who, in addition to being a faithful ambassador for the city, perfectly transmits the values of the CHALLENGE brand: Honesty, determination and ability to excel
