Gómez Noya wants to revalidate his national title

Javier Gómez Noya chose Pontevedra to premiere the achievement of the United States Triathlon Professional Championship, as well as the silver medal obtained at the London Games. It is planned to compete today (12.45 hours) in the Championship of Spain, a meeting held in the city of Lérez. The Ferrolan triathlete will play the national test in a state of exceptional form, so he will try to revalidate the title reached last year in Vigo.

The athlete settling in Pontevedra also intends to be a prophet in his land and hang the gold medal. He has guaranteed the support and encouragement of the Pontevedra public, who will once again be devoted to his neighbor.

The elite men's race will start at a quarter to twelve in the morning, while the women's race will begin at a quarter to ten in the morning. At the starting line, in addition to Gómez Noya, there will also be Galician athletes Iván Raña and Jesús Gomar, the latter current runner-up in Spain and national aquathlon champion. Raña also returns to the city of Lérez in a season marked by injuries.

The elite test of the Spanish Triathlon Championship has an Olympic distance, so the circuit will consist of 1.500 meters of swimming, 40 kilometers of cycling and 10 kilometers of running.

The unstoppable Ferrolane

Pontevedra will take to the streets to see one of its most beloved athletes compete. It is common in the municipality of Pontevedra and its surroundings to see Javier Gómez Noya train. In this sense, the Olympic medalist will fight for glory in a circuit that he knows perfectly well: swimming in the Lérez river at the foot of the Tirantes bridge, cycling along Compostela avenue and running in the historic center and the outskirts of the Galician Center for Sports Technification.

The ferrolano is unstoppable. The silver medal was hung at the London Olympics. In the United States Championship, a test limited to 30 athletes and prestigious guests, the triathlete from Ferrol completed the circuit in just one hour, 51 minutes and 21 seconds, a record 38 seconds less than his closest rival, the American Hunter Kemper. Pontevedra wakes up today to act as judge of the revalidation or not of the national title of Javier Gómez Noya.

We will also have to be attentive to the role that the favorites of the elite women's category play today. At the exit they will be Saleta Castro, Aída Valiño and Ainhoa ​​Murúa. The Gipuzkoan achieved an Olympic diploma in London, and last year she was fourth in the European Championship held precisely in Pontevedra.
