The deceased is a fireman who arrived on the island of Mallorca to take part in the so-called Challenge Peguera.
A Briton has died drowned this Saturday while performing a 1.9km swim test in the Peguera triathlon, on the Tora beach of the island of Mallorca (Spain).
The athlete, a 45-year-old firefighter, underwent cardiopulmonary resuscitation on the beach, but attempts to save the victim had no effect and the man died in the presence of his wife and parents, Diario de Mallorca reports.
The swim test is the first of the three that make up the prestigious international Challenge Peguera Mallorca triathlon, which took place between 08:00 and 18:00 (local time) on October 19 in the Spanish tourist town of Peguera.
In addition to the 1.9 kilometers swimming in the sea, the participants of the Challenge Peguera also have to complete 90 kilometers by bike and just under 24 kilometers running.
