Javier Gómez Noya favorite in the seventh round of the world series in Yokoyama

This weekend, Yokohama hosts the penultimate scoring round of the ITU Triathlon World Series circuit, prior to the final of the Auckland Grand Final at the end of October. The event will include the participation of the Galician Javier Gómez Noya, who comes to the Japanese city in full fight for the world title.

On his way to his third title of World Champion, the Ferrolan will have to face in Japan triathletes like the South African Richard Murray; the Swiss Sven Riederer; the Gauls Laurent Vidal, David Hauss and Pierre Le Corre; or the Russians Poliansky and Vasiliev, among others.

In the female elite category, we can see in action triathletes of the likes of Lisa Norden (silver in the London Olympics), the New Zealand Andrea Hewitt (second classified with 3141 points), or the Chilean Bárbara Riveros Díaz. They are joined by a powerful Australian representation, led by Erin Densham (bronze in London and leader of the women's ranking with 3611 points), along with Emma Moffatt, Ashleigh Gentle, Felicity Sheedy Ryan and Felicity Abram.

All of them will compete in a course integrated by a first stretch of two swimming laps on the Osanbashi pier, until completing 1.5 km. Throughout the 40 km cyclists, they will make eight laps bordering some of the most iconic places in the city. Finally the contestants will conclude with a walking race of 10 km with departure and arrival at Yamashita Park.

The current Olympic subcampéon arrives in Japan after overcoming the ankle sprain II that prevented him from participating in the last Spanish Triathlon Championship held at the beginning of September in Pontevedra. Gómez Noya currently occupies third place in the World Series standings with 2905
points. While the British Jonathan Brownlee leads the ranking with 3825 points, with the Russian Alexander Bryukhankov in second place with 3285 points.
