LA FETRI claims against the ITU for the incident with Javier Gómez Noya
The Spanish Triathlon Federation, after viewing the graphic material it has on the Elite Men's event of the Pontevedra Triathlon European Championship and, despite the fact that the athlete Javier Gómez Noya renounces making any claim, the FETRI has decided to before the ITU to make a report on the incident that occurred in the swimming segment during 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 repetitive opinion to the detriment of the triathlete Javier Gómez Noya, committing said infraction.
In a situation like this, the Federation considers that they must be studied and addressed in an exemplary manner. 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 later withdrew in the cycling sector without completing the test and was later disqualified for the attitude observed by the judges in the swimming sector.
