David Castro: “I can’t ask for more and I’m going to fight to be at the Paris Games”

The Albacete triathlete lives a sweet moment. In recent weeks he has been proclaimed the Spanish Elite champion in the Olympic triathlon modality, also the Spanish Sprint Triathlon Championship in Pontevedra and this weekend he has achieved the test of the European Triathlon Cup in Barcelona

What do you eat every day to win tests in recent weeks?

I bet on the food of the land and especially Miguelitos de la Roda who is my town (laughs). The truth is that I cannot ask for more, I try not to make mistakes in the races, in recent years I have been good but something always happened, now I have improved in that aspect and the last results are being very good, I am learning to compete and save the bad days and critical moments that occur at races

How was the test?

The sea was somewhat rough, but I knew that the first laps later with the bike would be key because there were good riders. I managed to get out of the water fifth and later in a group of eleven cyclists we managed to take advantage of the pursuers and I knew how to take advantage of that difference to keep my pace and finally get the victory.

What do you think about the future?

I have been competing for three weeks in a row and fortunately winning, but now I need to stop and rest. Now I have the ProTour at the Casa de Campo in Madrid and on November 7 will be the European Cup in Portugal to put an end to the season. This weekend I need to rest a bit to assimilate what is happening and fortunately I have no injuries, which is always important.

The phone will fume these days …

It’s crazy, but that makes me happy because many people show you that they are aware of you and are happy about the successes. When I come back from training for many days I find many messages and I try to answer as many as I can. It’s nice when people remember you on social media.

Your challenge is to be in the next Olympic Games ..

Now I am interested in finishing the season in the best possible way both in national and international events to score points. The Olympic qualification is a long period and I have to be in many tests. I want to get my homework done as soon as possible so that the coach can count on me. It will be a long period, but I am going to try and fight to try to be in Paris.
