The German athlete Julia Mai has died at the age of 38, victim of a cancer she has been fighting for months. The triathlete treasured in his palmares different medals on Spanish soil. The most outstanding, that of his victory in the Vitoria-Gasteiz Triathlon of 2017, competition that he also attended this year, but from which he had to retire.
Maybe that could be one of the first symptoms of a disease that detected about twenty days after the Vitorian test, a cancer of the uterus, which could not overcome after being operated at the end of August.
The news has filled social networks with messages of support for his family. Ruth Brito, who was her direct rival in the two editions she played, remembered Mai on her Instagram account: "Julia Mai, winner of the Triathlon Vitoria 2017, has died this Sunday due to cancer, simple and humble. that we share moments with her, a lot of strength to all her family and friends, that she rest in Peace.
