Spain, team bronze in the adapted surfing world championship

The Spanish adapted surfing team, made up of eighteen athletes, won the team bronze medal at the World Cup held in Pismo Beach (California, United States), organized by the International Surfing Federation.

The Spanish team finished third, supported by the individual medals of María Martín Granizo, Mireia Cabañes and Sarah Almagro, with 10,448 points behind the United States, that gold was hung with 10,890, and from France, who took the silver with 10,695.

María Martín Granizo, who was born with a femoral agenesis in her right leg, was proclaimed world champion in the Stand3 category, in which her partner Mireia Cabañes won the silver.

The third individual medal was the bronze of Sarah Almagro, who in 2018 suffered from meningococcal meningitis that caused septicemia and multi-organ collapse that led to the amputation of her hands and feet.

The Andalusian faced in the Prone2 category the favourites, the Australians Emma Dieters and Jocelyn Neumueller, and finished third.

One step away from medals with a fourth place was the young Audrey Pascual from Madrid and the Basque Ibon Oregui in the Kneel category.

The Spanish team was completed by Ibai Hervás, Cristian Alonso, Xavier Ayestarán, Ángel Curiel, Andrés Campos, Juanma Ramajo, Óscar Pérez, Paloma Oñate, Ariadna Balmes, Ander Goneaga, Catalina Alomar, Celia Gramse and Vega Guardeño.

With this result, Spain reaffirms itself as one of the best teams in the world by chaining three consecutive podiums in the last three World Cups.

Surfing is awaiting its official declaration as a sport that is part of the competition program of the Los Angeles 2028 Paralympic Games.
