Javier Gómez Noya "This was probably my last ITU race"

The Galician triathlete Javier Gómez Noya possibly participated yesterday in what may be his last ITU test in the coming dates.

Noya finished yesterday in 25th position in the individual event of the Olympic Games and will focus on the medium and long distance from now on, as he had already anticipated.

Although now he seems to rule out participating in an official test, it should not be discarded, since like Iván Raña has returned to compete in some federative test, it may be that we will see Noya compete with the monkey of the Spanish team.

The victory was for Kristian Blummenfelt y Mario Mola he was the best Spaniard finishing in 10th position. Fernando Alarza It was 12º.

Noya in his networks has published a farewell message

"As you can imagine, I am not at all happy with my result at the Tokyo Olympics today.

After all the hard training and preparations, the body just didn't respond.

It wasn't the heat (it wasn't that hot after all), I just felt flat, I had nothing to give, but I'm not going to bore you with reasons and justifications.

In elite sport, results are what matter and today I was not good enough.

I would have liked to do better in what was probably my last ITU race, but that's life!

I have competed at ITU at the highest level for about 20 years, competing against different generations of incredible athletes, I have had incredible experiences and I am honored to be the athlete with the most victories.

It is definitely much more than you could have dreamed of!"
