A young athlete from Granadilla is already making her mark in cross country running, despite being only eleven years of age.
Luana Delgado Acosta was crowned champion of Tenerife in the juvenile category in the island competition held recently in Tegueste.
Luana belongs to the municipal school of athletics and has been practising the sport for two years, having already established herself as one of the best in Tenerife.
Her other achievements have included first place in the popular race in Candelaria, first in the Llano del Camello event in San Miguel de Abona and third in the 60 metres and 1,000 metres in the athletics championship season 2015.
Councillor for sport Nacho Mendoza Morales congratulated her on behalf of the council and highlighted the role of the municipal school of athletics which has accumulated more than 50 followers over the last three seasons.
