On Saturday the 7th of February, Sands Beach Resort celebrated the first Sands Beach Active aquathlon. Fortunately, we have had good participation and an even better atmosphere.
During the winter season, many triathletes escape to Lanzarote for the beautiful sun that the island offers at this time of year. These excellent weather conditions allow them to do their best during their workouts. We took advantage of the large influx of triathletes at Sands Beach Resort during these months and organized the first Sands Beach Active Aquathlon.
We had a wide range of athletes of different nationalities and from different places of training. Some of them were professionals but of course we made room for the small ones.
Some of the guests at Sands Beach Resort did not want to miss this sporting event and did not hesitate to encourage the athletes which brought such a great atmosphere. Among those who went to see the triathlete professionals were Marino Vanhoenacker , Víctor Del Corral, Stephen Bayliss and Helle Frederiksen.
Finally the first three positions were conquered by Daniel Hofer, followed by Alessandro Terranova and Peru Alfaro, in the men’s category. While in the women’s category, it was Gaia Perón who crossed the finish line first, followed by Paola Saitta and Silvia Saitta.
