For now, the world triathlon champion, Javier Gómez Noya, recognizes that he will not leave the sport to become an actor. However, the Ferrol who resides and trains in Pontevedra has become the star of the promotional video for the Pontevedra European Triathlon Championship and the face of an advertisement for an isotonic drink.
In fact, yesterday part of Powerade's advertising campaign was filmed at the Technification Center. "I've been filming lately, but I have to admit that I'm a better triathlete than an actor," said Gómez Noya during a break from filming. "But the truth is that it is a new experience, I am enjoying and learning a lot."
Meanwhile, the triathlete continues with his preparation for the world championship. He travels to Australia on Friday to start competing, although he recognizes that the important thing is "to be well in the month of September to give war".
Javier Gómez Noya will play at home in the European championship, which is held in the city in June. "It is the biggest goal for me," said the triathlete. "I am very excited". He added that competing "at home, in front of people I know, motivates me." He stressed that the test will have a special atmosphere, since the public "was spectacular" during the European tests that were held in other years in Pontevedra. "It will be a memorable test of improvements worldwide."
