Massana Trophy 2021
This afternoon, the Martorell Swimming Club presented the awards for the 76th edition of the Massana Trophy, the quintessential event of the organization chaired by Eva Rodríguez. With the presence of the Mayor of Martorell Xavier Fonollosa and the Councilor for Sports, Gerard Mimó, the CN Martorell has celebrated the closing of an event for which they recovered their traditional format about five years ago and in which a hundred swimmers took part. The Massana Trophy is a tournament that the club has held since its first stage. After turning 90, the club is still betting on joining its swimmers for four consecutive Fridays in November and making them compete in all styles. Divided into seven categories, participants have been tested against their club mates and the best of each age have been rewarded with a distinction. All, however, have received a medal and a bathing cap commemorating the club’s 90th anniversary as a gift to their efforts. The youngest, from the Aquatic and Sports Swimming School, have competed together, as well as those from the 2012-2013 age group. From the 2011-2010 category, the tests have differentiated between male and female. The highest bands were 2009-2008, 2006-2007 and 2005 onwards in the men’s section.

CN Martorell has made the Massana Trophy survive thanks to the involvement of those who form the organization. Nearly eight decades old, the event continues to move forward in time with the help of coaches, swimmers, parents and club members. The president bases the success of the event on “the desire, enthusiasm and parents who help the organization”. Eva Rodríguez, presidenta CN Martorell
The club’s swimmers have grown close to the water and the Massana Trophy: “It’s exciting to see them start and move forward,” said Rodriguez about the participants. Eva Rodríguez, presidenta CN Martorell
Although the club’s intention was to hold an aperitif after the awards ceremony, the pandemic data have forced the entity to postpone it. In this way, the CN Martorell closes in 2021 and prepares to continue swimming in 2022.
