Carlos Sosa Henriquez Best Canarian Triathlete 2016
Carlos Sosa Henríquez has been awarded for the fourth time best triathlete in Canary Islands in his age group.
He has already won the title in 2013 and 2014.
On the 2nd of July took place the “Isla Bonita” Triathlon race, on the Bajamar beach, a race which scores in the Canarian Series of Triathlon, and being at the same time the Canarian Championship. In this sprint-distance trial, held in the beach of the Capital Santa Cruz de la Palma, the Canarian champion has been awarded in his age group.
Here what Carlos told us about the race:
“The trial started at 4 pm, with more than 140 triathletes – 12 juniors among them – on the departure line. The swim circuit was quite rapid, with few waves and little risk of disorientation due to the long line of lines and buoys, which can be followed offshore, however I got out in a bad way, ending up in a crowd very difficult to overtake; finally I could recover a lot of postions along the 750 m of swimming and cut a good distance at the head of the race, going out from the water 5th/6th, getting ready to face a very demanding bike circuit with a steep slope who had a leading role in the 4 laps circuit. In the bike sector I had to letting me fall to catch up with the pursuer group, avoiding making the war by myself and taking advantage of the benefits to go in the group, trying to hold up their rhythm, nevertheless, the best bikers took advantages and could face in better conditions the critical points of this circuit.
Once arrived at the T2 together with another group of triathletes, welcomed by a warm and inciting public, something normal in this Island who express a lot of interest in sport, we wore the running shoes without any delay and we left as fast as we could, even tough something broken from the bike segment, and trying to hold up positions for a speed pursuer group who was coming from behind, and recover some other position of the group who came ahead, along the circuit of 2 laps with some slope, throughrout the coastline, to finish the last 5 km of running race.
Finally and altough not very happy with the result, I could arrived 16th in the general and 1st in the category, confirming, for the fourth consecutive year – I have been started practicing this wonderful sport since a little more than 3 years – the title of Champion of Canarias in the category ( 2 x Joung + 2 x Junior).
We continuously improve and learn, working on next appointment, that will take place on the 30th of July on San Sebastian de la Gomera, another triathlon who scores for the sprint- distance of the Canarian Series, as in every remaining race of this season.
As always, and even more in this demanding period of the season, I will continue to rely on the superfood sports program by MoringaOn, to deal with competitions and daily trainings in the best way possible. These products have been tested succesfully from a long time ago and therefore my trust in them!”
We are very happy for Carlos success and happy to see that our superfood program is helping him to feel better.
