The next Ironman World Championship will have a castle touch thanks to Jesús Aureo Martínez Rubio. The man from Cuenca will compete in the main event of the World Championship in Hawaii, where he will be put to the test with dizzying distances: 3.86 km swimming, 180 km by bike and a 42.2 km marathon.
From his family environment, he assures Las Noticias de Cuenca that, for Jesús, playing this event has been a dream for a long time. After achieving the classification by winning in Vitoria, the castillero has packed his bags and, sheltered by his family, he has launched himself into Caribbean lands. Jesús belongs to the Jorge Manrique de Castillo de Garci Muñoz club, but also to Los diablillos, since he is currently based in the Madrid municipality of Rivas-Vaciamadrid.
The test will start at 7 in the morning in Hawaii -19 in Spain-, and will have 12 hours to complete it. With number 1624 on his back, the man from Cuenca is preparing to live a unique event for which he has been preparing for a long time.
