The 5th annual TriYAS by Activelife has taken place on Friday 20th February 2015. This is the UAE’s largest and coolest community olympic distance triathlon staged completely on the FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX circuit.
Despite the sandstorm hitting the capital of Abu Dhabi on Friday, Olivier Godart felt ready and determined to complete the triathlon as a professional athlete, he was the only luxemburgish participant amongst more than 420 athletes at the starting grid.
After a very fast bike ride in 54:16min for the 40km, he managed to run a 36:27min to finish 5th overall in this strong field, leading PRO-athletes like Filip Ospaly (3rd IRONMAN Florida 2013) or Balasz Czoke (Winner IRONMAN Korea 2011)!!! His end time of 1:54:53 was only 4:25min slower than triple swiss OD champion Ruedi Wild.
Congratulations from the team!
