The highest Spanish Olympic medalist of all time, the canoeist David Cal, has inaugurated these facilities, which incorporate elements for the assessment, control and basic practice of physical activity and sport (racetrack, cycle ergometer, muscle building bench, etc. ) for the students of the Degree in CAFD.
The campus of the San Antonio Catholic University in Cartagena has today a Sports Science Laboratory, a new teaching space adapted to the subjects of the Degree in Physical Activity and Sports Sciences in which practices are carried out in the classroom.
The room has 60 m2 where theoretical sessions can be given, because it has the necessary elements for it, but also incorporates elements for the assessment, control and basic practice of Physical Activity and Sport (race tape, cycle ergometer, bank of muscle building, ...).
This new equipment has been inaugurated by the best Spanish Olympic sportsman in history, the canoeist David Cal, together with the General Director of Sports of the UCAM, Pablo Rosique, and the Dean of the Faculty of Sports, Antonio Sánchez Pato.
Cal has achieved five medals in three Olympic games (gold and silver in Athens 2004, two silver in Beijing 2008, and one silver in London 2012).
With these facilities, the Campus of the Catholic University of Cartagena, in the neighborhood of Los Dolores, increases the services offered to the students of the race and enhances their identity as the University of Sports.
It must be remembered that the Los Dolores campus has a sports court, a gym and a 1,350 meter running circuit.
