LA FETRI claims against the ITU for the incident with Javier Gómez Noya

The Spanish Triathlon Federation, once viewing the graphic material it has on the Men's Elite test of the European Triathlon Championship in Pontevedra and, despite the fact that the athlete Javier Gómez Noya resigns to make any claim, the FETRI has decided to appear before the ITU to make a report of the incident occurred in the swimming segment during the celebration of the test, between Harry Wiltshire and Javier Gómez Noya, officially requesting the suspension of the athlete Harry Wiltshire who maintained an attitude in the swimming segment, in our unsportsmanlike and reiterative opinion to the detriment of the triathlete Javier Gómez Noya, committing said infraction.

In a situation like this, the Federation considers that they should be studied and tackled in an exemplary way. In the words of the President of the Spanish Triathlon Federation, José Hidalgo, "we are not in favor of this type of action, but once we have seen the images, we consider that we must defend our athletes from this type of action"

The athlete subsequently retired in the cycling sector without finishing the race and was later disqualified for the attitude observed by the judges in the swimming sector.
