THE DAY CENTRE FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES PARTICIPATED IN THE XI SPORTS DAY CONFERENCE
On Friday, April 8, users of the Day Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities in Mazarrón participated in the event for Sports Day, in which different races were developed for students, teachers, families, users and monitors of the Day Centre in which to participate. This activity had a charitable character, for the benefit of the ASSOCIATION OF RARE DISEASES D’GENES.
After almost a month enduring a climate more typical of another land, the region of Murcia and, more specifically, Puerto de Mazarrón, offered a splendid weekend to enjoy Flyski, the spectacular modality of jet skiing. The marina hosted the Copa del Rey 2022, taking place on the 9th and 10th of this month of April. In this event, as a novelty, another category was added, ‘Open’, in order to include two extraordinary riders from Poland in the classifications.
As usual, the qualifying tests took place on Saturday morning, consisting of the compulsory execution of various acrobatic exercises.
In the afternoon the activity resumed with the celebration of the “battles”, facing the participants in pairs. When night fell, Quique Soriano and Dani Iborra offered a light show, one wearing a suit with LED lights, and the other with torches on his back that lit up the bay of Mazarrón for a few moments.
During the morning of Sunday, the semifinals and finals were played, awarding the title of champion of the Copa del Rey 2022 to Quique Soriano, followed by Alberto Leceta and Daniel Iborra.
In the girls’ competition there was an extraordinary surprise, the third place ranking of María López, from Mazarron, who in a very short time practicing this sport has been able to climb to the podium in the professional category. The winner of this edition was Clara Muñoz, whose recent motherhood has not prevented her from participating and winning the Copa del Rey. Second place was won by the veteran, Elena Vera.
In Men’s category, the winner was Jorge Encabo, followed by Aarón González and Ricardo Martínez, the latter from the coastal town.
Lastly, in the new Open category, the winner was the Polish rider, Artur, who showed a great technical level and prodigious physical preparation.
JOIN US AT “BEWARE OF THE ROBOTS EXHIBITION”! This exhibition is a very disruptive sample that will not leave anyone indifferent. Beware of the robots is a compendium of the artist’s works, from his first works to the present day, including pieces that are released on this occasion.The artiste calls himself a robot builder who turns everything that falls into his hands into jewels. Fauna, Mondongus, Alexia, Judas Priest, Kaboom… are some of the names of the robots that we can enjoy in this exhibition, large structures with a life of their own that seem to challenge us and interact with us. As the author himself, José Rosales says:“They look like living beings. They give the feeling that they are going to start walking at any moment. They are acid, insolent and irreverent. They are fun, they are pieces that have a lot of humour. I want a dialogue to be created between the work and the observer, robots have a life of their own”What is BEWARE OF THE ROBOTS about, the artist was asked. “It’s about second chances and reuse, added to my love of science fiction, robotics and fantasy makes up this very special cocktail. What we are going to see are beings rescued from ostracism, beings that combine all kinds of materials and as a result are living beings, almost with a breath of life.
You can visit the exhibition until 27 May, Monday-Saturday 10am-2pm and Thursday/Fridays between 5pm-8pm at Casas Consistoriales de Mazarrón
