Among the triathletes who have confirmed their participation, the presence of four components of the Spanish Olympic team stands out, such as José Miguel Pérez and Zuriñe Rodríguez, who currently accumulate the necessary score to be able to attend London 2012, and the juniors Uxío Abuín and Melina Alonso. In addition, athletes from Spain, Germany or Great Britain will attend, but also from Slovenia, Poland, the US, Guatemala and Colombia.

The Councilor for Sports of the Cabildo, Migdalia Machín, highlighted yesterday during the presentation of this event the "exceptional conditions that the island of Lanzarote meets for the practice of outdoor sports, especially in the winter season when in the rest of Europe - it's very cold and here we are at 20 degrees”.

For his part, the organizer of the race, Félix Andrés, wanted to praise the response obtained from the island's public institutions to help organize the race, and also highlighted the collaboration of various sponsoring companies such as LA PROVINCIA / DLP, NH Resort Hotels, Flex, Hotel Hesperia Playa Dorada and the Hotel Princesa Yaiza. De Andrés highlighted the consolidation of a test that is unique in Spain. The mayoress of Yaiza, Gladys Acuña, described this type of sporting event as a "tourist reef" for the municipality.
