Fernando Alarza "In San Diego I will give everything to climb the world rankings."

On Saturday May 12 -23: 30 Spanish time- the 2nd round of the 2012 World Cup will be held in San Diego (California). Fernando Alarza -who makes his debut in this competition having not been in Sydney- willing to continue gaining experience in high competition.


He flew to the US on Sunday 6th with other Spanish triathletes and is very motivated by this great event: “In the last training sessions in Madrid I have felt great, especially running. I'm in better shape without a doubt than in the recent European where I finished 12th.

In San Diego I'm going to give it my all to climb the world rankings. I have nothing to lose since others are playing the Olympic places a priori and therefore I can take risks to try to achieve the best possible result ”.

The level is going to be very high, since there are several countries –among them Spain- that have an Olympic place to decide and this triathlon is decisive. It can be said that except for Noya, Alistair Brownlee and the French and Germans already fixed for London, will compete the rest of the world elite of the Olympic distance.

In addition, San Diego, where a World Series event is held for the first time, is an emblematic place for triathlon; Triathlons were already organized there in the 70s; And during the 80s and 90s it was where the best triathletes in the world lived, not only Americans but also Europeans who settled there because of the great triathletic environment that was breathed.

A week later Fernando will compete in Dunkerke (France) in the second round of the French League of Clubs, over the Sprint distance (half of the Olympic) with his Sartrouville team, in which Javier Gómez Noya and the Brownlee brothers play, among others. .
