The National Federation proposes four categories in this discipline, all according to the levels of training of athletes with a system of promotions and descents, all the same as professional sport. No Hay Límite presented to 3 couples in the adapted category staying in the 6th, 7th and 9th positions.
In the category of sports skills played the youngest partner that has the team, Andres with 16 years and Miguel Ángel with 18, with this his second participation, showed a great concentration throughout the tournament winning the 5 games they played leaving details of great quality in this beautiful tournament.
In the quarterfinals our athlete Miguel Ángel suffered a tonic-clonic crisis, which caused him a momentary loss of consciousness accompanied by a first tonic phase (rigidity limbs) which made us think that the tournament was over for this young couple , but it was not like that, after a few minutes of pause he opted to continue and finish the match and face the semifinals with a great concentration, going back a very complicated game against the Cartagenero team of Primisport.
The final was played against Aspajunide, winning by 4 games to 1 and celebrating the National title with immense joy.
In the Sports Testing category, 3 boys of ours participated and our princess Alicia Mesa, the only participant in wheelchairs, doing the beating herself, demonstrating year after year that her overcoming has no limits.
In this test the athletes José Antonio and José Martín took the Gold and Silver with a tremendous concentration in all their strokes in static and movement, internalized strikes after multiple repetitions in weekly training.
This National tournament brought us back together with many friends from all over Spain, fostering social relationships on the track and in the hotel, giving us an extra energy to continue advancing in everything we set out to do.
