María Teresa Flores has congratulated the Huelva Swimming Club for organizing one more year “an event linked to the intense sports agenda of our Colombinas Festivals, a deeply rooted competition, which is a challenge for the swimmers who participate and which will once again offer us a great show in the Huelva estuary, between the Muelle de las Canoas and the Real Club Marítimo”.

A circuit that will start on August 6 in Punta Umbría and will end on September 19 in Minas de Riotinto.

For his part, José María Rodríguez has given an account of the characteristics of “a very important competition, with almost 6 kilometers in length, which attracts high-level swimmers, but which also has an inclusive character through the mini-crossing.” .

Lastly, Miguel Ángel Pérez de Diego expressed the Federation’s gratitude to the Hueva City Council for giving its swimming pools to the clubs and for holding competitions throughout the year, as well as to the Provincial Council for launching this swimming circuit and, especially, to the Club Natación de Huelva for “the hard work of organizing this crossing on time”.
