It has been established for some time now as a top-rate international sports training centre, and now Tenerife Top Training can literally claim Olympic standard with Rio Games competitors who trained in T3 facilities here in Tenerife bringing back 19 medals – 6 gold, 8 silver and 5 bronze. The medals are mainly in swimming, most notably Swedish Sarah Sjöström, who broke her own world record while winning three medals – a gold in the 100m butterfly, silver in the 200m freestyle, and bronze in the 100m freestyle.
Medallists also include Great Britain’s gold medal winning triathlete Alistair Brownlee, and Team GB’s brilliant young swimmer Adam Peaty, who won the gold in the 100m breaststroke, setting two world records in the process! What a wonderful facility this is in Tenerife – the only one of its kind in Europe!
