Rubén Bravo and Elena Aguilar take the Sierra Nevada triathlon

The Malaga-born Rubén Bravo and the Granada-born Elena Aguilar have achieved victory this Sunday in the Olympic distance of the Sierra Nevada Ironmad triathlon, a test considered one of the toughest in the world in which more than half a thousand hard-working athletes have participated.

Bravo completed the 1.500-meter swim in the Pantano de Canales, the 46-kilometer bike ride and the 10-meter race through Sierra Nevada in a time of two hours, 55 minutes and 36 seconds, six and a half minutes less than the Marbella-born Emilio Crovetto, which was second. The Sevillian Emilio Álvarez has completed the men's podium.

In the female category, the victory has been for the Granada-born triathlete Elena Aguilar, with a time of almost three and a half hours, ahead of Sara Bonilla, who was second, and Rocío Alcanchuel, third classified.

More than 500 athletes have participated in this Sierra Nevada triathlon, considered one of the toughest in the world due to its distance and altitude of the route, since most of it takes place in the winter season of Granada.
