One more year, Madrid will host one of the great events of the international triathlon, THE WORLD SERIES, where this year it will also be the last scoring event to achieve the desired pass to the 2012 Olympic Games.
Three Spanish triathletes have already achieved their place today: Javier Gómez Noya, Mario Mola and Ainhoa Murua, the latter two will compete this weekend in the Spanish capital.
Despite the loss caused at the last minute by the great favorite, Javier Gómez Noya due to the flu, throughout the weekend the Casa de Campo de Madrid will become a veritable hotbed of triathletes, fans and the general public who They will put all their wishes so that Jose Miguel Pérez, Iván Raña, Zuriñe Rodríguez and Marina Damlaimcourt from Madrid, achieve the necessary points to obtain the ticket to London 2012. Other triathletes who will take part of the starting line will be Fernando Alarza, Marta Jiménez, Carolina Routier and Anna Godoy
We are sure that the strength with which triathlon is lived in the Community of Madrid, where its neighbors year after year go out to the streets to cheer these triathletes with their voices, along with the fans of other communities that will visit this weekend the city and the hundreds of Galicians who will come in buses with the aim of supporting Iván Raña, will bring the best of luck to these young triathletes who will compete in search of achieving “their Olympic dream”.
In addition, this year Televisión Española will have a luxury guest. Madrid's Ana Burgos, twice Olympian, will be in charge of broadcasting part of these great events that will be held this weekend at the Casa de Campo in Madrid.
But this is not all, behind “the bandolinas” we will be able to see one more year hundreds of “TriVolunteers”, belonging to the program developed by the Madrilenian Triathlon Federation, working to make this event a reality, a role developed altruistically by these people with the sole objective of helping the athlete to achieve their goals.
It has been 10 years since the International Federation entrusted this project to the Madrid Triathlon Federation for the development of international events in Madrid, where year after year they come showing their high degree of involvement and commitment to this international event, being a work worthy of chose.
This weekend, Madrid will be the epicenter of the International Triathlon.
