Erika Yenssen is a 19-year-old qualifier of the 44th edition of the 57 km Maratón Acuática Internacional Santa Fe – Coronda.

The psychology student will compete in the 57 km river race on February 4th. “I am very happy to qualify for the Santa Fe – Coronda race in 2018. I think it is one of the races that a girl dreams of competing.

The goal that I have in this race is first to finish. I think it is the priority; it is very demanding, they are many hours and that is why we have to train well because the head plays a key factor.

I have not participated in marathon races; only shorter races of not more than five hours of race
