Gómez Noya among those registered for the World Cup

The competition, which broke the registration record with 1.100, will be held on the 24th and 25th of this month

Less than two weeks before the dispute in Gijón of the Duathlon World Championship, on the 24th and 25th, the competition already has more than 1.100 registered, which exceeds the figure of last year in Edinburgh. Through the streets of Gijón there will be the best distance specialists and also others who usually compete in triathlon competitions, such as the Spanish Javier Gómez Noya, current number three in the world ranking and winner of the World Triathlon Championship in 2008 and 2010, fourth in the Beijing Olympic Games, European champion in 2007 and 2009 or winner, among other races, of twelve World Cup events.

Gómez Noya is perhaps the athlete best known by the fans, but the list of those registered includes others such as the Spanish Victor Manuel del Corral, who finished as the leader of the world duathlon ranking, the Belgian Rob, Woestenborghs, second in the World Cup last year in the elite category, the Russian Sergey Yakolev also ex- number 1 of the world ranking or the French Damien Derobert. Her compatriot Sandra Levenez, second in Edinburgh last year, is one of the favorites for the final triumph.

In total, 30 countries will send representatives to this World Championship, including athletes from South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, Japan or Bermuda.

The World Cup will be held on the same circuit in which the Spanish Championship took place last year and which runs through the vicinity of Las Mestas, where the start and finish will take place, close enough to the city center to facilitate the presence of fans, but without damaging road traffic, one of the drawbacks of this type of competition.
