In an interview with the newspaper Brand, Javier Gómez Noya He makes an assessment of his performance to date, where last Sunday he achieved third place and his second podium this season in the Triathlon World Series.
2 podiums in 3 races
«A podium in the World Series is always for joy and above all because the direct rivals in the classification were behind me. As for the sensations, I did not do my best race; neither swimming nor cycling. It was hard for me to find the rhythm, it wasn't comfortable, and I thought that running would cost me, but my legs worked differently"He confessed.
«I have three World Cup races and two podiums. I am the only one who has repeated the podium so far in the World Cup, that means that everything is very open, but I have shown consistency and I am happy with how things are going", he pointed.
"A few months ago I had no idea of going for the World Cup."
«I did not do the first test, because I was not interested and did not see the World Cup general as an objective, but the three races have put me in the fight and now I am, I would not say forced, but I am not going to miss the opportunity to make a good post or a podium. If I maintain regularity it can be done"Said the Galician triathlete, fourth in the world ranking.
The following tests will be on Sprint distance
The next World Series events - all of them in sprint distance (half of the Olympic) - will be in Montreal (Canada) and Hamburg (Germany). At two he plans to go. The last one, in Edmonton, keeps her in doubt. "I do not have it so clear. It is a bit of an uncomfortable trip on a bad date ».
“Let no one doubt that Mario will win races again; and soon"
In the last three races, coinciding with the return of Gómez Noya, Mario Mola, reigning world champion, has not been on the podium and has not even finished in the top twenty.
«He has had a series of circumstances that have not benefited him in the race and unfortunately he has chained several tests with not very good results, but let no one doubt that Mario will win races again; and soon", said.
«For me Mario Mola is the best short distance triathlete in the world and remains one of the main rivals and the fastest there is »Gomez Noya concluded.
