Jérôme Barthels finished his 1st Ironman triathlon ever in Maastricht on sunday.
A little anxious about this long distance, Jérôme Barthels stayed calm and raced steadily to finish his first Ironman race in 11h50:30 on 519th rank overall out of 1113 finisher.
After a conservative swim in 1h29:07 in the Maas river, Jérôme remained concentrated on the bike to finish this part in 6h10:24. Once on the marathon, he breezed through with a steady pace in 4h00:22 to remain under his personal goal – the 12h barrier. Well done Jérôme and have a good recovery!
