Sete Benavides
« on: August 10, 2012, 10:46:32 AM »
Sete Benavides, Puerto Pollensa's very own kayak champion is taking part in the Olympic games in the UK.

He's a member of the RCNPP and they are so proud of him that they are putting up large screens this weekend so that locals can watch his progress at the games.  The main bits will be shown on TV  there just before 11.00am on Saturday and Sunday.  I can almost hear the shouting and cheering from here!

They are also organising a free coach to take his big fans down to Palma Airport on Monday to welcome him back to Mallorca!

He also has a facebook profile if anyone wants to continue checking out his progress.

Ok so this TV interview with Sete Benavides is in Catalan and Spanish but it is still heart warming to see the Olympic contender from Puerto Pollensa  taking time to talk to local school children.  Great to see how well the school children handle the microphone too!

A fantastic effort by Sete Benavides in the 2016 Olympic Games but he was just pipped to the post for a medal and came in 4th place.
Hoping his performance wasn't adversely affected by his new hair colour as he's now a bleach blond sort of guy!   ;D
