Alejandro Puebla and his coach attended a special meeting with the Vice Mayor ahead of their move to the Fred Vergnoux training group, at the Sant Cugat High Performance Centre.

THE 17-year-old swimmer and his coach, Francisco Javier Aledo, met with the Vice Mayor and Councillor for Sports, Noelia Arroyo and Delegate Councillor for Sports, Diego Ortega.
The councillors wanted to congratulate the young swimmer and let him know that because of his “effort and dedication” it means that he has the amazing opportunity “to train this season at the Sant Cugat High Performance Centre, the only centre open after the health crisis, together with top-level swimmers such as Mireia Belmonte and Alberto Martínez, also from Cartagena.”
“The successes of the athletes are behind the work of clubs such as the Carthagonova Cartagena Swimming Centre and the trainers that make it up, and are a benchmark in swimming with an indisputable track record and high-level athletes.”
The councillor will be hopeful of the young swimmer participating in the 2024 Paris Olympic Games after winning two new gold medals in February in the 400 and 1,500 metres in the Spanish Championship trials and after his move to Barcelona to train with the Fred Vergnoux training group.
