Ramón Arroyo returns 10 years later to compete in Calella. 

It was the inspiration for the film “100 meters” by Dani Rovira  

The history of Ramon Arroyo It is one of those narratives that transcends sport. 

Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and facing a prognosis that told him he would never run 100 meters again, Arroyo decided to defy all expectations.  

His fight and determination led him not only to run, but to complete one of the most demanding sporting events in the world: An Ironman distance triathlon.

A path of improvement
