marco bucci, first ironman distance triathlon

i have been coaching marco bucci for a bit more than a year now.

his goal was to complete an ironman distance triathlon.

he achieved that goal in challenge copenhagen on 12 august 2012, finishing the race in 10 hours 26 minutes.

the result could have been better as he was not in top health, but still a pretty good result for a first try.

here are some photos of his experience:
