Javier Gómez Noya, two-time world triathlon champion, added a new title to his already extensive list of successes, the Spanish Aquathlon Championship, which he conquered yesterday in Ferrol. In the aquathlon there is no bicycle sector, as in the triathlon: the participants face a 2,5 kilometer running race, a kilometer of swimming and when they leave they run a 2,5 kilometer walk again.
Gómez Noya was unrivaled, set his own pace and escaped in the first sector of the foot race, so he already did the swimming sector alone and without any opponent to force him to change the pace that he imposed himself. When he got out of the water, his advantage was even greater, so the second section of the foot race was already a walk among the spirits and congratulations from the fans who gathered on the margins of the circuit of the Avenida del Mar de Caranza, in Ferrol .
He crossed the finish line first with a time of 28.33. The second place was for Jorge Naranjo at 46 seconds and the third place was occupied by Jesús Gomar, at 52 seconds. The top three finishers are triathletes from the Cidade de Lugo Fluvial.
In women, the German Ricarda Lisk won, with 32.55, which does not score for the Spanish Championship, which finally went to Carolina Routier, 25 seconds away.
