Rafa Botello Qualifies for London Olympics 2012


Monday 2nd July will stay etched in our minds as the day our very good friend and sponsored athlete, Rafa Botello found out he has qualified for the London Olympics 2012.

It’s hard to imagine the joy, pride and satisfaction that an athlete must feel on achieving such a pinnacle of success in their career but Rafa, in his inimitable style, dedicates his incredible success not in congratulations to himself, but in gratitude and love to those closest to him.

Thanking his family, friends, sponsors and his beloved Lanzarote for the unswerving support they have given him, Rafa shared his joy at the news of his qualification on his personal blog.

London will be Rafa’s second consecutive Olympics having competed in Beijing Olympics 2008 where he secured 11th place in the marathon to add to his sporting CV of achievements.

A superb athlete whose enthusiasm and professionalism inspires everyone around him and whose tireless dedication to his career is a beacon to others, Sands Beach Active salutes you, Rafa and will be with you every exciting and exhausting moment of what lies ahead.

Felicidades. Nadie lo merece más 🙂
