The president of the Murcia Master Swimming Club, José Luis Morales stated that “the swim itself is short and adapted to both swimmers and triathletes, since the distance is the same as in this competition.” Morales thanked the “City Council that these types of events can be held, since with them they are returning the illusion and love of sport to many athletes.”
