The triathlon in Barcelona is an important sporting event that is held every year to promote the practice of sport, and this time has an added value, as 25 years have passed since the amazing Olympic Games in Barcelona 92.
Last Wednesday 20th of September the Barcelona Triathlon 2017 was presented at the Olimpic Sport Museum, which was attended by a great Spanish athlete who participated in those memorable games of 92, Abel Anton. This year, Abel will be the representative of the Banco Santander team along with Mireia Belmonte and Miguel Indurain.
At the Hotel Barcelona Princess, official hotel of the Barcelona Triathlon, this year we’ll repeat our assistance at the Barcelona triathlon with our great #BarcelonaPrincessTeam.
In this year’s triathlon there will be different distances and modalities so that everyone can participate in it.
As a novelty this year, the Barcelona Triathlon 2017 aims to increase female participation so that there are more women on the starting line of the Triathlon and crossing the finish line.
That is why the campaign has begun with the hashtag #mujerestriatletas, in which Ana Pérez (@ annita.smiles) or Sara Loehr (@saraloehr), among others, participate.
In the case of the team of the Barcelona Princess, Marina one of our staff members is a woman triathlete and this year she repeats in the triathlon of Barcelona.

She has lived in several countries, but finally Miriam has come back to the great city of Barcelona, we show you a little bit of her interesting life at this hotel at the centre of Barcelona.
Where are you from, Miriam?
I am from Barcelona but I have also lived in Montreal and Dublin for four years.
They are very different cities to Barcelona, in Montreal there were temperatures of -20 degrees, so there were incredible underground cities. That weather was really cold and there is nothing better than the Mediterranean climate of Barcelona.
What do you do at the hotel?
I am the head of reception, a function that I manage together with Laya and our great team at Hotel Negresco Princes.
