Spain seventh in elite relay

The medal positions were decided in the last lap, with Spain being seventh classified. Ukraine and Germany fought until the last moment and it was in the final sprint that the name of the winning country, Germany, was decided. Ukraine came within only one second of the first classified. The Italians completed the podium of this test.

In this way, they completed the 300 meters of swimming, 8 kilometers of cycling and 2 kilometers of running that each of the four triathletes of the team had to do.

During the first supersprint, which was performed by a woman, the group of triathletes did not begin to divide until the foot race. The Spanish Marina Damlaimcourt handed over to Ramón Ejeda in fifth position. Hungary, Germany, Ukraine and Italy led the race.

 

As Josemi Pérez commented at the end, "we lacked strength running and that's where the medal positions were decided." That is why María Pujol took the witness from Ejeda Séptima.

The fight began to define itself and, for the Spanish team, Poland became their rival. Josemi Pérez managed to cross the finish line by handing the Spanish team seventh place in the European Mixed Relay Triathlon Championship, "the team was touched from yesterday's individual race but, when you give it your all, you're satisfied." Josemi also wanted to thank the work of the 600 volunteers from the Pontevedra European “I thanked those I saw at the end of the race. With everyone's work, we managed to make the best European we ever attended ”.

For their part, the winners highlighted the work of the entire team. "We have good coaches, a good group and very good sprinting triathletes," said Bucholz, also referring to the Olympic gold of the German Frodeno.
