Francesc Sola has once again given us joy by winning last weekend in the Dextro ITU World Championship that was held in the city of London, in category TRI1 paratriathlon.
Here you have the first-hand chronicle of our champion:
«We repeat victory in the World Championship Series in London. This past Sunday we ran in the well-known Hyde Park in London, where the elite race for boys and girls of the World Series was also held, including the Spanish Raña, Gomez, Mola, Murua, Rodriguez and Damlaimcourt, the two spectacular races where the Spanish showed that they are still there at the foot of the canyon.
The day of the race arrives, we go to the athletes' area where they gave us the numbers and we finished putting everything down, the drink on the bike, the Mulebar gels well placed on the fork so as not to waste a second checking the HED wheels and leaving everything ready for battle.
More than an hour before they made us leave that area to go to the transition but we still had a long time left and it started to rain so we spent more than an hour in the rain with some wind and cold until an hour before I decided Put on the Zoot wetsuit now because I couldn't take it anymore.
We finally entered the transition and it continues to rain, when I left everything ready, it started to heat up because with the humidity, the wind and the cold, it was a bit complicated and the good thing was when entering the water that the temperature was higher than outside so he was comfortable.
They start and I imposed a strong swimming rhythm, I felt very comfortable, the Zoot Prophet wetsuit is really wonderful and it helped me a lot to swim very fast and super comfortable, I realized that I left behind my category and more people As we passed the first buoys I realized that I was quite alone but I did not know if there were many people in front of me when when I got out of the water I found out that I was second overall and leaving 1.05 ′ from second place, I took off my wetsuit quickly, helmet, Mulebar and running, the first laps of the bike were fast and taking a bit of an advantage although the last two were softer to recover a little and get off to run comfortably with a good difference.
When I got on the athletics chair I realized that the hoops were not pulling due to the rain, I got quite nervous and tried to stay calm and finish the race, not give up and I did not want to think that anyone would overtake me and that's how it was, taking a look backwards to make sure I was going well I reached the finish line first with a time of 1: 14: 09h in a race that was not easy due to the rain and the nerves I had spent the weeks before because I didn't know if I was going to run.
