Several days ago, a great announcement for Jaen’s sport came to us from #Hawaii: Juanma Gutiérrez got a well-deserved seventh position in the Ultraman World Championship 2016.
Mariscos Castellar has been one of the sponsors that has trusted this athlete from the province, who is also the first Andalusian to participate in this Ultraman championship. We are very proud of the immense effort and sacrifice that during three days have lead Juanma to get the seventh position, in a championship where 40 worldwide athletes competed.
It was a total of 25 hours, 7 minutes and 25 seconds to confront three hard races consisting of 10 km swimming, 420 km cycling and 84 km running (obtaining the second position in this category), together with the fact that he had to stand the hot and humid climate characteristic of this island. All these conditions make our champion’s deeds even greater if possible.
Our commitment to sports has been always very close, and therefore we do not want to miss the opportunity to congratulate Juanma once again from our blog. Congratulations for having overcome this intense championship, for his effort and tenacity, for his great resilience that has almost taken to the limit, and for leaving the name of #Jaén in a real high place.
