The current Spanish and Olympic Champion at the Rio Olympic Games Miriam Casillas He has presented us with the first part of his competition calendar. 

Miriam Casillas 2016 finished injured, after competing in the Spanish Championship began with some discomfort that prevented him from finishing the next week the World Cup final in Cozumel. He decided to close the season at that time, so this winter his main goal has been to recover to 100% of the ankle injury.

During these last months he has been training very well swimming and cycling. He started running at Christmas and his progress is being very good. As she has told us: “The truth is that I am training both by bike and swimming much better than last year and running I am already starting to be at my level. This winter I also wanted to dedicate a little more time to medicine, to completely close the practices that I had left to finish my degree. Although no one likes being injured, I believe that even now I have continued to grow as an athlete and that this type of "winters" will also bear fruit."
