Gómez Noya works her weak point

Javier Gómez Noya lives with his mind set on London, the place where in eight months he will try to achieve the Olympic glory that physical problems denied him in Beijing.

The Galician triathlete is carrying out a particularly meticulous set-up that aims to refine even the smallest detail. It is hard to think that after so many years in the elite there are still issues to improve and that is what he is dedicating himself to at the moment.

The ferrolano has just concluded a three-week concentration at the Playitas sports complex in Fuerteventura, a period in which he has essentially dedicated his time to promoting work in swimming.

Their coach, Omar González, is fully satisfied with this first phase of the Olympic season in a place where they feel particularly comfortable: “We have fulfilled everything planned, about 40.000 meters every week, even swimming double sessions on some days. Pedro Miguel Reig's company has been very important for Javi to express himself.

I am convinced that Javi is in one of the best moments of his life in the water and I hope he will show it by beating his 1.500 mark in the Galician championships ». Javier will compete in them from December 28 to 30 in Ferrol, in 200, 400, 800 and 1500 freestyle meters; the goal is to lower that mark of 15:42 by the distance equivalent to that of the Olympic triathlon.

To do this, the days before will do the typical specific set-up for swimmers. In the segment that dominates the least, Gómez Noya wants to be at the best level, largely to avoid that in London he can find an unpleasant surprise at the first exchange since the Brownlees, great rivals of the Galician, are exceptional swimmers.

In Fuerteventura the cycling and walking sessions have been of rhythm, without forcing, to accumulate kilometers. Some bike rides were with Rabobank professionals - a team concentrated in Playitas - something that Gómez Noya loved: “It was a luxury riding with them; Although they have not been strong, they learn from how they go in a group and use the developments. I have also got on very well with the Spanish Luis León, Gárate and Barredo. They even came to see me at the pool in the afternoons and have asked me a lot about the way triathletes train ».
