Faris Al-Sultan - Ironman World Champion Victory at Yas

Dear visitors welcome to my new homepage,

after the sudden disbandment of our triathlon team I’m riding solo.

The four years in the name of Abu Dhabi were a great experience, great learning and great fun.

I was able to start this new phase of my career with a win on the spectacular F1 course of Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island.

In spite of showing a rather modest performance especially on the bike (284 watts) I was able to overcome my training mate from Dubai Olivier Godart who was fighting teeth an claws, with some painful effort.

Next to solid training for the upcoming season, some final clean up work at team issues and the search for new partners is on the list.

best regards from the desert
