Milín Llamedo Álvarez
World runner-up, European Champion and Champion of Spain in Canoeing
Born in Arriondas, she is an international with the Spanish national team in marathon and sprint and is the current champion of Spain at 5,000 metres.
Her destiny was linked to the sport since she was a baby. Before she learned how to walk, she was able to jump in a canoe with her father and go down the Sella River together.
Her enthusiasm for canoeing makes her not only one of the best competitors, but has also led to her running a sports store called Llamedo Sport in the Asturian town of Villaviciosa. Here, she welcomes customers and shares her knowledge with all canoeing fans who come to visit her.
