On May 28, 2022, the renovated Mediterranean Epic Triathlon.
The test, which already has 400 registered of the 750 that have been set as a limit, will concentrate a good part of the national medium distance specialists.
In this sense, over the last two weeks the names of the triathletes who will join Javier Gómez Noya in the role of ambassadors for the event have been revealed.
Up to nine confirmed ambassadors
Curiously, among this extensive list appear names of athletes who are age group.
“The test aims to have a high level of elite competition“, Hector de la Cagiga, responsible for the test, tells us,”but we do not want to forget that most of the participants will be amateur athletes, with their jobs and their complexity of fitting in with family life and training“.
In this context, the also organizer of Mediterranean Epic BTT sees the inclusion of GGEE ambassadors as logical: “we wanted our ambassadors to represent everyone“.
This is, so far, the list of confirmed ambassadors:
Javier Gómez Noya
No introduction is necessary, the Ferrol star has been five times world champion, four times European champion and silver in London 2012.
Headliner and possibly the best ambassador a triathlon can have in Spain.
The Galician Saleta, who has just finished fourth in a trail test without preparing it in a specific way, will also be part of the cast of ambassadors.
Triathlete since 2001 has more than twenty IRONMAN behind him. His best positions: triumph and second place in IRONMAN Maastrich 2017 and 2016, podium in IRONMAN Lanzarote and several fourth places.
Qualified for the IRONMAN World Championship next May, it remains to be seen that Judith Corachán goes to North American lands.
What will be certain is that you take the exit at Mediterranean Epic Triathlon. She will also be the image of the test and this was confirmed through Instragam last Wednesday.
Another Catalan with many things to say in the middle distance. Laura Gómez, Saltoki’s main female bet, will also be in Oropesa.
Her track record supports her: Champion of Spain in the 2020 Triathlon in Bilbao and first classified in the Half Pamplona 2021.
The international triathlete Indre Bartuke will also be part of the competition. 4th in the classification of her age group and TOP15 in the general of IRONMAN 70.3 Cascais Portugal, the Lithuanian is classified for the World Championship.
Victor Arroyo Bugallo
The current long-distance Champion of Spain, and curiously Saleta Castro’s coach, will also be in Castellón on May 28.
Behind him, several TOP10 in IRONMAN: the most recent, just a few days ago when he finished seventh in Cozumel and achieved his personal best in the distance, stopping the clock at 7:52:51.
The Madrilenian joined his name to that of figures such as Iván Raña, Víctor del Corral or Eneko Llanos, among other nationals, who have already been able to lower than eight hours.
Without a doubt, one of the top favorites to reach T1 in first position: triathlete and trainer specialized in endurance sports, swimming and triathlon. It has several participations in championships in Spain.
This year he has been seen training with Javi Gómez Noya, who he helped in the swimming segment.
Ironvives, as they like to call themselves on social networks, is the maximum exponent of what has been a GGEE PRO for some time, amateurs who, due to their dedication and performance, practically lead an elite life.
In his backpack, two participations in the IRONMAN World Championship, another five long distance completed, and several TOP10 in local events.
He is part of the organization with the role of Technical Director, but the Madrilenian will also be part of the starting line. He defines himself as a professional extriathlete but he sure offers a high level in competition.
