In the U-16 category Miguel Reche Domingo took part, whilst José Antonio García Romero was in the U-21. The shallow water, little fish and the bad weather failed to spoil the good work of the Mazarrón athletes with José Antonio García Romero winning a bronze.

The following day Miguel Reche made a great performance despite it being his first attendance at a League of Spain event, finishing 7th overall in the championship and achieving promotion to High National Competition and winning a silver medal with Team Murcia. Both are fishermen who excel in the sport of fishing despite their young ages.
