Jose Manuel Tovar will be this weekend in the couples triathlon, Guadalajara
The triathlete from Casareño sponsored by Marca Extremadura, will compete tomorrow in the Olympic Couples Triathlon, Guadalajara, which will serve as part of the preparation for the next Spanish Elite Triathlon Championships to be held in September and where Jose Manuel is always one of the favorites as well treasure their last years where they do not drop from the top four.
Tovar is facing this season with difficulties, where injuries are being his biggest impediment to perform at his best, but he hopes 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 felt pain again in training and although I have not stopped training and I am enduring the pain as I can, I trust that little by little the discomfort will dissipate and I can 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 to go sightseeing in Madrid. ”Little by little I am transmitting that this sport is not just training and competing, and for this competition we are going 6 athletes and 5 companions where, in addition to enjoying watching us 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 partying every weekend and eating hamburgers´´.
Together with Tovar, Águeda Rodríguez, María Eugenia Solana, Vero Tovar and Javier Barragán from the Cáceres Triathlon Club and Antonio Fabuel from Extremadura Triathlon will compete.
