Gemma Sevillano, an inviting triathlete and a member of the Masters Claror team, left us last Sunday in 12 in 46 years.
Gemma Sevillano, born in Barcelona on 17 in July of the 1972, was an inviting triathlete that started swimming in a very small age, a discipline in which she competed representing the Master Claror for 12 years.
An example of overcoming and persevering, his sporting career begins at 6 years with swimming. At 15, he began to compete nationally and internationally with the paralympic selection, which led him to collect numerous medals at 5 European Championships and 2 World Championships. He participated in the Olympic Games of Seoul 1988, Barcelona 1992 and Atlanta 1996, where the end of several tests arrived.
2011 decides to change discipline and becomes a triathlete, without completely neglecting swimming. He was an adapted Triathlon Spanish Champion and was preparing to participate in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
Apart from the sporting achievements, he collected the Guild of the human and sporting values of the Royal Spanish Swimming Federation and of the Catalan Federation.
You can see the interview we made at 2017 for the Claror Magazine here, where he explained his career and his most immediate challenges.
Always Gemma, rest in peace.
