Last Saturday, February 18, the now legendary Villa de Madrid Duathlon was held at the Casa de Campo in Madrid, which in 1995 became the Spanish Championship, and where one more year some of the best triathletes on the national scene and International gathered to participate in this test.
In a scoring event for both the Individual and Club Rankings, we were able to count on the presence of Jose Almagro from Madrid (current Champion of Spain in the Individual Cros Duathlon Ranking and Super Ranking 7) and the international Marina Damlaimcourt, which this year is struggling to maintain the necessary points that give it a place in the London 2012 Olympic Games
More than 600 duathletes participated in the different outings that took place throughout the morning. At 10.00 the first men's start in the Supersprint distance (3km-7,8km-1,5km) was given to continue with the women's event. Once the popular event was finished, the Sprint Distance Duathlon (5km-23,4km-2,5km) was held.
David Vargas and Isabel María Gutiérrez were the winners of the Villa de Madrid Popular Duathlon Super Sprint distance, and with total authority and without yielding a meter before their rivals, Jose Almagro and Marina Damlaimcourt prevailed in their respective categories and in sprint distance, making clear the high level of competition of Madrid triathletes.
Diablillos de Rivas and the Madrid University Triathlon Club were made with the highest score for the ranking of clubs in the male and female category respectively.
