Swimming in the sea makes me feel free and alive, in intimate contact with nature. Swimming is my own private form of meditation. I rejoice in the silence around me and relax with the sound of my own breathing. The sea is marvelous, full of life; it is crucial for our own survival and well-being. It needs to be preserved.”

Suñer Comalat, también conocido como “El Divo de Girona”, se convirtió en el primer catalán, segundo español y quincuagésima persona en el mundo en alcanzar la Triple Corona.
