The home triathlete sponsored by Marca Extremadura, will compete tomorrow in the Olympic Triathlon for Couples, Guadalajara, which will serve as part of the preparation for the upcoming Elite Triathlon Spanish Championships to be held in September and where Jose Manuel is always one of the favorites as well as they treasure their last years where they do not drop from the first four.
Tovar is facing this season with difficulties, where injuries are his biggest impediment to perform at his best, but he hopes to be able to finish the season successfully. »A few weeks ago in the Extremadura Triathlon Championship I felt very good and I was able to compete without pain in my knees, but after the competition I noticed pain again in training and although I have not stopped training and I am enduring the pain as I can, I hope that little by little the discomfort will dissipate and I will be able to enjoy the last training sessions and competitions of the season ”.
In addition to the Couples Triathlon, Jose Manuel's training group will use the weekend for sightseeing in Madrid. »Little by little I am transmitting that this sport is not only training and competing, and for this competition we are 6 athletes and 5 companions where, in addition to enjoying watching ourselves compete, they will be able to do tourism through sport. On Saturday we will go see some monologues and on Sunday we will go to museums in Madrid, sport is the true quality of life, and not to party every weekend and eat hamburgers.
Along with Tovar, Águeda Rodríguez, María Eugenia Solana, Vero Tovar and Javier Barragán from the Cáceres Triathlon Club and Antonio Fabuel from the Extremadura Triathlon will compete.
