El Portocolom Triathlon, the best valued of all those held in the Balearic Islands historically, will feature the Mallorcan Mario Mola as ambassador and image of the test in this next edition that takes place on Sunday, April 10.
Mola, three-time triathlon world champion and one of the best Spanish athletes, will start his 2022 season by participating in the 55.5 distance in which is the best candidate for victory.
"The Portocolom Triathlon is one of the mythical tests of this sport at a European level.
It is a very traditional triathlon in terms of its organization but with a very high level of quality, which treats all athletes in an exquisite way, and has a very fun and ideal format to enjoy this unique environment in the bay, the roads around Felanitx and the climb to Sant Salvador, to finish running through the historic center and around the Portocolom lighthouse.
As a local athlete I am very proud to join the Balearic triathletic community and join what will be my first competition of the year”, assures Mola.
Mario Mola, a three-time Olympian, knows the event well: “Until now I have not been able to come to compete due to my busy international calendar, but I know well everything that is done for triathlon here, and my brother has participated several times in the event and always spoke highly of the organization".
