Susana Rodríguez perpetuates her world reign in Abu Dhabi

Susana Rodríguez has done it again. The Galician woman won the Abu Dhabi Triathlon World Championship, held this Thursday, thus perpetuating her reign in the PTVI class for another year. It is his fifth crown and the fourth consecutive in a decade, in which he also climbed the podium to collect two silvers and two bronzes. Susana forms an unstoppable duo with her guide, Sara Loehr, as she already demonstrated at the Tokyo Paralympic Games. And together they have spent a year bathed in gold, the one that they hung in the European Championship in Poland, in the World Series in Yokohama and Montreal and in the World Cup in A Coruña and Alhandra (Portugal). This long-suffering victory is nothing more than the icing on the cake for another very prolific season.

Susana and Sara went from less to more during the test and once again imposed their reign, with a record of 1:08.11. They ended up being 32 seconds faster than the Italians Tarantello and Petrini, their great rivals. The Galician woman and her guide overcame all the obstacles on the way, which were many. “We had a good race. You have to put it in perspective. I have had a very difficult year, even yesterday we had a big scare with a fall, but fortunately it had no consequences. And when you don’t see, these things scare you a bit. It takes a while to gain confidence, ”explained the five-time world champion in statements to the Spanish Triathlon Federation (FETRI), where she also made an appeal:“ We are few people and there are colleagues who are dedicated in the water to punch you, pull your legthe boys leave a minute earlier but there are some who make their debut in a triathlon… There are things that need to change for the sport to move forward”. Despite everything, nothing gets ahead of Susana. Another title and another stone to build his legend…

However, this was not the only joy for Spain in Abu Dhabi, from where the team returned laden with medals. The veteran Dani Molina and the very young Andrea Miguélez also won gold. The Madrid resident living in Guadalajara, five times European champion, has achieved his fourth world title and dreams of reaching Paris 2024, which would be his first Games. While Andrea, who made her international debut in June 2021, has revalidated her gold from the last edition in the world championship. They are joined by Lionel Morales with a silver and Marta Francés with a bronze.
