Gómez Noya wins the Spanish Acuatlon Championship

Javier Gómez Noya, two-time triathlon world champion, added a new title to his already extensive record of success, the Spanish Aquathlon Championship, which he won yesterday in Ferrol. In the aquathlon there is no bicycle sector, as in the triathlon: participants tackle 2,5 kilometers of running, a kilometer of swimming and when they leave they run again 2,5 kilometers on foot.

Gómez Noya had no rival, he set his own pace and escaped in the first running section, so he already did the swimming section alone and without any opponent to force him to change the pace he set for himself. Upon leaving the water his advantage was even greater, so the second section of the race on foot was already a walk among the encouragement and congratulations of the fans who gathered on the margins of the circuit on Avenida del Mar de Caranza, in Ferrol.

He crossed the finish line in first place with a time of 28.33. Second place went to Jorge Naranjo, 46 ​​seconds behind, and third place was occupied by Jesús Gomar, 52 seconds behind. The first three classified are triathletes from the Cidade de Lugo Fluvial.
